A few months before that, Jon Favreau’s live action adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s “The Jungle Book” has settled on an October 9th 2015 release. It’s the sole release currently slated for that month.

Finally, Ron Howard’s currently filming historical drama “In the Heart of the Sea” has settled on a March 13th 2015 release. Chris Hemsworth stars in the film about the sinking of the whaling ship Essex in a story that inspired “Moby Dick”.
