Two long-delayed films are getting new dates much later than their originally intended releases.
Entertainment Studios has set a January 11th wide release for the Keanu Reeves and Alice Eve-led sci-fi thriller “Replicas” which was first screened at Toronto last year.
Reeves plays a neuroscientist who alters his cutting-edge research to replicate his family after they’re killed in a car accident. The film will now go up against “The Upside,” “A Dog’s Way Home” and the wide expansion of the Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic “On the Basis of Sex”.
The news comes as “It Follows” director David Robert Mitchell’s “Under the Silver Lake,” which was originally delayed from June to December, is now delayed again until April 19th 2019.
Andrew Garfield plays a Los Angeles man who attempts to unravel the mystery, and potential conspiracy, behind Riley Keough’s character’s disappearance the night after they met.
The film was first screened at Cannes in May to tepid reviews, and all the delays suggest Mitchell may be reworking the film but distributor A24 has reportedly denied any editing changes.
