Rampage should move to 4/6 or 4/13. All the wide releases on those dates are lackluster. The issue with moving it into May is that between Infinity War, Deadpool 2 and Solo, it’ll get absolutely buried.

And I Feel Pretty moved up again to 4/20/2018.

Rampage won't move up because Warner Bros. has Ready Player One and Pandas committed to IMAX for much of April. The last thing they should be expecting is a Jumanji result (also, I wouldn't be surprised if Tomb Raider's result influenced how things will be handled).

Meanwhile, even more Disney dates:

Penguins 4/19/2019
Live-action placeholders: 10/4/2019, 11/8/2019, 2/14/2020, 5/29/2020, 10/9/2020, 12/23/2020, 2/12/2021, 5/28/2021, 7/9/2021, 10/8/2021, 12/22/2021, 5/27/2022, 7/8/2022, 10/7/2022, 11/4/2022, 12/16/2022, 2/17/2023

And a few Universal moves:
Little 9/20/2019
Will Packer Productions placeholders: 11/15/2019, 5/15/2020

In other news, The Weinstein Company is close to having a new buyer. The group set to purchase the assets has plans to stay in film production and will focus on making movies made by and for women. In addition, most of the board will be female (similar to Annapurna, which of course is bankrolled by Megan Ellison).

And just as I figured, MGM has pulled Valley Girl from their release schedule.

Also, some Sony dates:
A Dog's Way Home 1/11/2019
Miss Bala 1/25/2019
The Crow 10/11/2019
The Nightingale TBA 2019 (from 1/25/2019)

Edit: Warner Bros. has scheduled The Six Billion Dollar Man for 5/31/2019. Maybe it will finally happen this time.

And the Weinstein sale is off. Just file for bankruptcy already.

In other news, Love, Simon is getting a sneak preview Saturday night. Looks like Fox is taking a note from the Jumanji playbook.

New dates:
Tully 5/4/2018 (from 4/20/2018)
Sorry to Bother You 7/6/2018 (from 6/29/2018)
Juliet, Naked 8/17/2018 limited, 8/31/2018 wide

Meanwhile, the director of Gotti, Kevin Connolly, has announced that the film will open on June 15th. However, I cannot find a distributor listed (Lionsgate previously had the film but dropped it). (Edit: I'm thinking this could be the untitled Entertainment Studios project.)

Neon is planning to release Revenge wide on 5/11/2018. I was convinced this would be a day-and-date title.

Speaking of Sundance titles, Hearts Beat Loud will open limited on 6/8/2018.

Peppermint is not the Untitled STX Action Film after all as it will open on 9/7/2018 (the untitled is still scheduled for January).

I'm thinking the untitled could be Den of Thieves 2 (seriously, this is happening).

Meanwhile, The Hustle is now titled The Con is On (which might be the worst title of the four they've had so far).

And a company finally picked up The Miseducation of Cameron Post. FilmRise will release the Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner later in the year, basically confirming obscurity for it and the numerous titles that remain without distribution.

Meanwhile, Lionsgate will release the oft-delayed Hunter Killer on 10/26/2018.

Fox making some big moves today:

Dark Phoenix - 2/14/19 (from 11/2/18)

Bohemian Rhapsody - 11/2/18 (from 12/25/18)

New Mutants - 8/2/19 (from 2/22/19) (some thinking Disney will eventually dump this onto their streaming service, and rumors of a full reshoot)

The Kid Who Would Be King - 3/1/19 (from 2/14/19)

Spies In Diguise (animated kiddie w/Will Smith and Tom Holland) - 4/19/19 (from 1/19/19)

New Dates:
Breakthrough (Christian film w/Chrissy Metz and Topher Grace) - 4/12/19

And James Mangold's The Force is taken off the schedule (from 3/1/19), as he'll shoot a Ford vs. Ferrari movie with Christian Bale and Matt Damon first now.

Lessons learned so far for Disney's Netflix killer/Fox plan:

1. Don't let Adam Devine carry a film (his two Netflix films are apparently awful too).
2. Don't turn X-Men into a horror film from the director of The Fault in Our Stars.

I'm curious how this is all going work, Is Fox still going to operate as it's own production studio ala Marvel and Pixar, or is it going to go the way of Touchstone?

These moves don't really make any sense, just seems to be a stalling tactic
