“Knives Out,” “1917,” “UglyDolls” Set Dates

A couple of key release date announcements today, starting with STX Entertainment setting a new date for the “UglyDolls” film, moving up by a week to May 3rd, making it the only wide release film of that week which comes directly after the opening of “Avengers: Infinity War” the week before.

A24 has locked in a March 1st release for Gaspar Noe’s “Climax,” the same weekend Focus Features has put aside space for Neil Jordan’s “Greta”.

A24 has also landed the rights to Lee Cronin’s horror film “The Hole in the Ground” and have set a limited theatrical release on March 1st 2019. The film, which premieres at Sundance next month, involves a sinkhole which may have consumed and then spat back the murderous double of a young mother’s only son.

Next up, Lionsgate has bought distribution rights to the Daniel Craig-led murder mystery “Knives Out” from filmmaker Rian Johnson. They have set a Thanksgiving release date of November 27th.

Finally, Craig’s old “Skyfall” director Sam Mendes’ new World War I film “1917” will score a limited release on Wednesday, December 25th next year ahead of a wide opening January 10th 2020.
