The New Line horror film 'Lights Out' also gets a new release date.

Warner Bros. has moved Guy Ritchie's untitled King Arthur movie to Presidents Day weekend, Friday, Feb. 17, 2017. Taking a seat at the round table will be Jude Law, David Beckham, Djimon Hounsou and Charlie Hunnam, playing the infamous monarch.

The studio saw success with the February action film release, Matthew Vaughn's Kingsmen: The Secret Service, in 2015. It will be going up against Fox’s YA franchise film Maze Runner: The Death Cure, the final installment in the series. 

The Village Roadshow movie was previously slated for a summer release: July 22, 2016.

Taking the open July 22 spot will be the New Line horror pic Lights Out, which is based on a short by David Sandberg that follows a woman who is terrorized by a creature who appears when the lights go out.

The film, which was previously set to hit theaters Sept. 9, will now be competing against Paramount's Star Trek Beyond and Fox’s Ice Age: Collision Course on its new release date.
