'Terminator,' 'Charlie's Angels' Pounce on Old 'Wonder Woman 1984' Release Date
Monday's announcement that Warner Bros. is relocating Wonder Woman 1984 from Nov. 1, 2019, to June 5, 2020, has prompted release date changes for two other high-profile projects that will now face off against each other.
Late Monday evening, Sony said it is moving its Charlie's Angels reboot from Sept. 27, 2019, to Wonder Woman 1984's old date of Nov. 1.
That was followed by Paramount's announcement Tuesday morning that it will now open its untitled Terminator project on Nov. 1 as well, instead of two weeks later on Nov. 15.
The two projects, which arguably won't compete for the exact same audience, are counting on a long run throughout November, capped by the lucrative Thanksgiving corridor, and into early December.
James Cameron is producing the Terminator reboot in a coup for Paramount and partner Skydance, and is working closely with director Tim Miller. Colombian actress Natalia Reyes has nabbed the starring role in the Terminator reboot, while Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger are returning to the franchise fold.
