King Arthur, “Bad Santa” Score New Dates

Warner Bros. Pictures has pushed back Guy Ritchie’s untitled “King Arthur” movie from July 22nd 2016 to February 17th 2017.

Charlie Hunnam stars in this first of a proposed series of films about the Arthurian legend. Astrid Berges-Frisbey, Jude Law, Djimon Honsou and Katie McGrath also star.

Due to the change, Warners has shuffled around some other dates on its schedule. The untitled horror film previously known as “Lights Out” has been moved up from its September 9th 2016 to that now vacant July 22nd 2016 slot. Warners has slotted its Tom Hanks-led “Sully” film into that September 9th date.

Over at Saban Films, they’ve announced dates for three films which will all get a limited theatrical and VOD release. The three include the Laurence Fishburne and Thomas Jane-led “Stand Off” on February 26th, the Adrien Brody and Sam Neill thriller “Backtrack” on March 11th, and the Clive Owen and Maria Bello family drama “The Confirmation” on March 18th.

Finally, Broad Green Pictures has set a November 23rd 2016 release date for the sequel to the cult black comedy “Bad Santa”.
