The remaining film release schedule for the rest of 2015 has seen a major shake-up with several key films being pushed back – some by several months.
Most notable is the Tom Hardy-led Kray twins film “Legend”. Originally slated for a wide release on October 2nd, the movie has been pushed back by over a month and will get a platform release instead.
The film will first open in New York and Los Angeles on November 20th before going wide on December 11th.
Also of note is the Gerard Butler-led action sequel “London Has Fallen”. This ‘Olympus’ sequel was slated for January 22nd next year but will now open March 4th.
Then there’s the transgender drama “About Ray” which was slated for release this weekend and has been pulled. A new date has yet to be scheduled by The Weinstein Company but it is expected to open sometime this year. Elle Fanning, Naomi Watts and Susan Sarandon star.
Next there’s the Natalie Portman-led western “Jane Got a Gun” which was originally slated for Summer last year, saw multiple delays and appeared to become a victim of the recent collapse of Relativity.
Now, The Weinstein Company have picked up the film and have set a February 2016 release but not announced a specific date within that month. The film will open earlier overseas though, hitting Europe in November.
Finally one film that isn’t changing dates but is changing up its title is the Melissa McCarthy-led “Michelle Darnell”. The white collar crime comedy will now be titled “The Boss” and remains on track for an April 8th 2016 release.
