STX Pulling Dave Bautista's 'My Spy' From August Release Calendar
At the 11th hour, STXfilms is pulling the Dave Bautista action-comedy My Spy from its August release calendar, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The pic had been set to open Aug. 23 in theaters.

While STX had no official comment, insiders say the movie could benefit from instead launching in early 2020, further away from the Fox comedy Stuber, which co-stars Bautista and opens this weekend.
Nevertheless, the shift comes at a time of tumult for STX, which has suffered a string of box office misses — most notably, the in-house production Ugly Dolls.
Directed by Peter Segal (Get Smart), My Spy stars Bautista as a CIA agent outwitted by a 9-year-old girl, played by newcomer Chloe Coleman, whose family he’s been sent to surveil.
Late last month, STX touted the film during its presentation at CineEurope in Barcelona, the annual gathering of foreign theater owners and Hollywood studios.
