A couple of key release date changes have taken place in the last few days, including several of this summer’s key titles. 20th Century Fox in particular has shaken up its slate, playing musical chairs with three of its upcoming titles.
The “Poltergeist” remake has been moved up by two months to May 22nd, as a result the Melissa McCarthy comedy “Spy” has been pushed out of that slot and back two weeks to June 5th. On top of that, the road trip tale “Paper Towns” has been moved out of that June 5th slot and into the old “Poltergeist” slot on July 24th.
They aren’t the only studio shaking things up though. STX Entertainment has unveiled its slate of films with an untitled Blumhouse thriller opening July 31st, the remake of the acclaimed “The Secret in their Eyes” opening October 23rd, the horror tale “The Boy” opening January 22nd 2016, and the Matthew McConaughey-led historical drama “Free State of Jones” hitting March 11th 2016.
Then there’s several individual changes. Relativity has set “The Bronze” for July 10th, Warners has moved up “Max” by two months to June 26th, and Fox Searchlight has scheduled the Saoirse Ronan-led period drama “Brooklyn” for a limited November 6th release.
Then there’s Sundance award winner “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” which has been set for a July 1st release, Tom Hooper’s potential awards-worthy transsexual drama “The Danish Girl” with Eddie Redmayne which is set to get a November 27th release, and the Maggie Smith-led “Lady in the Van” which has been slated for December 11th.
