Warner Bros. Changes Release Dates For 'King Arthur: Legend of the Sword' And Other Upcoming Movies
Warner Bros. has just announced that a number of its upcoming movies will be released on different dates. The changes were based on various reasons. The movies that are affected are “King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword”, “CHiPS”, “Everything, Everything”, and “Annabelle 2”.
With Warner Bros. enjoying a lot of success from the movies it released this year, it has decided to change dates for its upcoming movies to strengthen their game plan. This year, the entertainment company released 17 recorded films and almost all of them did well at the box office. “Me Before You”, “The Conjuring 2”, “The Legend of Tarzan”, “Lights Out”, “Suicide Squad”, “The Accountant”, and the recent “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” are few of the notable titles that they released in 2016.
The company has announced that the release date of “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” will once again be delayed. This time, Warner Bros. decided to bold, confident of the success it raked in with this year, and decided to push the awaited epic drama movie to a more strategic date. “King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword” will be arriving in cinemas on May 12, 2017, instead and will be available on IMAX and other conventional formats.
It was originally planned to premiere in theaters July this year but was pushed back to next year after deciding that it was better to release it during Presidents Day weekend. Unfortunately, when 2016 opened, Warner Bros. announced once again that the movie will be postponed to March 2017. And the recent announcement has delayed the movie once more, which is ten months later than what they actually initially planned.
“King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” will be competing against Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” and 20th Century Fox’s “Alien: Covenant” if it pushes through with the May 2017 schedule. The upcoming Warner Bros. film is one of the most anticipated movies this year since the company started releasing teasers to build up the hype. Hopefully, this will be last time the movie is delayed as it may just disappoint fans waiting for it and lose a number of potential viewers.
With the “King Arthur” movie getting postponed, the movie adaptation of the NBC series, “CHiPS” will be debuting on screens earlier. Warner Bros. has announced that it will be released on March 24, 2017, instead of premiering originally in August 2017. “CHiPS” is an action comedy movie that stars Dax Shepard, Michael Peña, Adam Brody, and Kristen Bell among many others. The movie was adapted from the 1970 television show created by Rick Rosner.
“Annabelle 2” has now been placed in Warner Bros. roster of summer releases. The horror movie sequel has been postponed from May 2017 to a premiere date in August 2017. “Annabelle 2” is expected to be as successful as its prequel. Aside from being a sequel, it is also the fourth installment in “The Conjuring” series.
Lastly, new movie “Everything, Everything” has finally been slated to release on May 19, 2017. It is an upcoming romance drama movie that stars Amanda Stenberg and Nick Robinson. Warner Bros. have tons of titles lined up to release in 2017, which includes “The Lego Batman Movie” and “Wonder Woman”.
