“Just Mercy” Dated, “Sesame Street” Delayed

Just Mercy Dated Sesame Street Delayed

Warner Bros. Pictures has shifted up its holiday film schedule a bit.

First up, the Michael B. Jordan-led legal drama “Just Mercy” is set to get a Christmas Day limited release, then go wide on January 10th. Jamie Foxx plays a black man sentenced to death for a crime he didn’t commit with Jordan playing his lawyer. Brie Larson also stars.

Meanwhile, the Jonathan Krisel-directed live-action “Sesame Street” movie, which “Eighth Grade” filmmaker Bo Burnham is penning songs for, has been delayed six months. Originally slated for January 15th 2021, the film now opens June 4th 2021.

In that film, Sesame Street friends are mysteriously expelled from their neighborhood and find themselves in Manhattan. They team up with Sally Hawthorne, a plucky history-show host who’s on a quest to save her program and prove that Sesame Street actually exists.
