Just ahead of their merger with Disney completing, 20th Century Fox has shifted around the release dates of some of the major remaining films on its slate.
The biggest shift is Matthew Vaughn’s “Kingsman” prequel. That film has been pushed back from November this year to a Valentine’s Day 2020 opening in February – essentially taking the old slot that the next James Bond film vacated last week in favor of an April 2020 opening.
As a result of this shift, Fox is also delaying James Mangold’s “Ford v. Ferrari” biopic with Christian Bale and Matt Damon. That film was to open in the height of Summer on June 28th this year but will now take Kingsman’s old slot on November 15th – putting the film in the midst of awards season.
Finally, the studio has also set director Shawn Levy’s action-comedy “Free Guy,” starring Ryan Reynolds, for a July 3rd 2020 release.
