If it’s a holiday weekend, it’s time for the Hollywood studios to do a little housekeeping before enjoying their own turkey dinners. Universal is no different, as the studio decided to end the short holiday week with the announcement of a massive batch of release dates (via Deadline). Let’s dig in!
The Mummy reboot (also, The Mummy is getting a reboot?) will arrive on April 22, 2016. We have nothing else to say about that, other than, has anyone told Brendan Fraser?
The apparently plagued The Seventh Son, starring Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, and Ben Barnes has been shoved yet to another distant release date. The film, originally filmed back in 2012 and last set to hit theaters on January 17, 2014, will now arrive on February 6, 2015. Yes, 2015, you read that right. This is the film’s fifth release date, and it has the distinction of having release dates that spanned three whole years – in 2013, 2014, and 2015.
Duncan Jones’ Warcraft has also gotten a shove – from December 18, 2015 to sometime in March 2016. The film’s previously set release date was recently overtaken by Star Wars: Episode VII, so this move is not surprising in the least.
A pair of other films have also gotten dates – Michael Mann’s latest, an untitled cyberthriller, will hit theaters on January 16, 2015, and the Jennifer Lopez-starring The Boy Next Door won’t arrive until January 23, 2015.
What are you looking forward to seeing?
