20th Century Fox is continuing to change up its slate this morning, quickly moving “Maze Runner: The Death Cure” into that February 9th slot that was previously set aside for Shane Black’s “The Predator”.
Next up, Jennifer Lawrence-led spy thriller “Red Sparrow” has been pushed back four months from November 10th this year to March 2nd 2018. That has had a knock-on effect with Kenneth Branagh’s “Murder on the Orient Express” being pushed back a few weeks to take over that now vacated November 10th 2017 slot.
Steven Spielberg’s untitled Pentagon Papers film (aka. “The Post”) has scored a December 22nd 2017 limited release ahead of a January 12th wide expansion. Also this year, “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” has been moved up a week and will now hit September 22nd which has led to Universal’s “American Made” with Tom Cruise to go back a week to September 29th.
Back to 2018 and Steve McQueen’s “Widows” remake has been slated for November 16th, and Bryan Singer’s Freddie Mercury biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” with Rami Malek will open Christmas Day 2018.
