Sony has been shuffling some release dates. The studio has made several changes to its release schedule, moving some titles and dating others for the first time.
The upcoming Jumanji reboot, which stars the likes of Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan and Jack Black, has been moved from July 28, 2017 to December 22, 2017. This move was made as the studio believes the title will excel in the family-dominated frame of the Holiday season.
The July 28th date is now occupied by The Dark Tower. The long-awaited adaption of Stephen King's fantasy series was originally supposed to arrive on the big screen in February 2017, however was moved to score a blockbuster date for the film and to allow more time for the project time to finish work on visual effects.
Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey headline the picture.
Sony has also moved Edgar Wright's Baby Driver from March 17, 2017 to August 11, 2017. The comedic crime actioner stars John Bernthal, Lily James and Jon Hamm. Horror flick Patient Zero will arrive in theaters on February 17th, while the Bella Thorne thriller Keep Watching will open March 24th. Additionally, Flatliners has been pushed to September 29th, while the Denzel Washington-starrer Equalizer 2 has moved up to September 14th. Finally, Sony has shifted the animated Emojimovie: Express Yourself to August 4th, putting it into competition with Fox's highly anticipated Alien: Covenant from director Ridley Scott.
