'CHiPS' Moves to Spring, 'King Arthur' Rides Into Summer

Warner Bros. also has shifted the 2017 premieres of 'Annabelle 2' and YA adaptation 'Everything, Everything.'

Warner Bros. has made several changes to its 2017 release schedule. 

King Arthur is moving to summer, from a March 24 premiere to May 12. Guy Ritchie's gritty reimagining features Charlie Hunnam as the monarch. The film also stars Jude Law, David Beckham and Djimon Hounsou.

Dax Shepard's CHiPS will move up from Aug. 11 to March 24. The reboot of the iconic '70s television series, which starred Larry Wilcox as Officer Jon Baker and Erik Estrada as Officer Frank “Ponch” Poncherello, will find Shepard and Michael Pena assuming their roles, respectively. 

Taking over the Aug. 11 release date is Annabelle 2, a sequel to the 2014 horror film. David Sandberg is directing with James Wan and Peter Safran producing. The follow-up was originally slated to bow May 19. 

Warners also has moved up YA adaptation Everything, Everything, starring Amandla Stenberg and Nick Robinson, from Aug. 18 to May 19. Stella Meghie is directing the adaptation of Nicola Yoon's YA book.
