Paramount Delays “America,” Sets “Infinite” Date

Coming To America 2 Clip Screens At Cinemacon

In the wake of Disney’s reshuffling of its entire film slate, Paramount Pictures has been the first to exploit the new windows. Along with shifting “Dora the Explorer” earlier today by a few weeks, the studio has now put aside room for two more titles.

First up, the “Coming to America” sequel has been pushed back four months to a December 18th 2020 opening. The Eddie Murphy-led comedy sequel takes over a slot previously occupied by James Cameron’s “Avatar” sequel which was pushed back by a year on Tuesday.

The studio has also dated the Chris Evans-led reincarnation drama “Infinite” for August 7th 2020. Antoine Fuqua helms this film adaptation of D. Eric Maikranz’s novel “The Reincarnationist Papers” about Cognomina, a secret society of people who possess total recall of their past lives. A troubled young man haunted by memories of two past lives stumbles upon them.
