“Rhythm,” “Greyhound” & More Set New Dates

A couple of date changes today, starting with the Blake Lively-led gritty spy thriller “The Rhythm Section” which Paramount has pushed to a November 22nd release.

The move not only takes advantage of the Thanksgiving holiday but offers a bit of counter-programming for adults who otherwise have no interest in the “Frozen” sequel opening that week.

Bond franchise producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson serve in the same capacity here in the story about a woman who adopts the identity of an assassin to get to the bottom of her family’s death in a plane crash. She discovers it may not have been an accident at all. Jude Law, Sterling K. Brown and Daniel Mays co-star.

Sony Pictures is shifting around its calendar – namely two Tom Hanks films it has on the way shortly. One, the old school WW2 action thriller “Greyhound,” has been delayed by over a year from March 22nd 2019 to May 8th 2020.

Hanks stars as Commander Ernest Krause of the U.S. Navy, who led an international convoy of ships across the North Atlantic whilst trying to avoid Nazi U-boats.

Their other Hanks film, the Mr. Rogers movie “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” has been pushed back a few weeks to November 22nd this year. Additionally, Sony will open the Naomi Harris crime thriller “Black and Blue” on September 9th this year.
