Warners Sets “Live,” “Annabelle 2” Dates

With Warner Bros. Pictures preparing to launch “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” in cinemas this weekend, release dates for four of its other releases have now been locked in.

First up, the Charlie Day and Ice Cube-led comedy “Fist Fight” has been slated for February 17th 2017. That will be followed by the sequel to the horror doll tale “Annabelle” on May 19th 2017. After that comes an August 11th 2017 release date for an untitled event film which, at best guess, is probably the “San Andreas” sequel.

Finally there’s an October 20th 2017 release date for the Ben Affleck-directed “Live By Night”. That puts the film, an adaptation of the Dennis Lehane novel, smack dab in the middle of awards season and only a few weeks out from the first “Justice League” film in which he also stars.

They aren’t the only company setting dates today though as The Weinstein Company have set a June 18th limited release for the Jon Watts-directed “Clown”. Eli Roth produces the film about a father who dons a clown outfit to perform at his son’s sixth birthday, only to later discover that the costume will not come off and his own personality changes in terrifying ways.
