The King’s Man is on the move. Disney has shifted the 20th Century film to Aug. 20. It previously was slated for March 12.
Matthew Vaughn returns to direct the World War I prequel to his Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) and Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017). Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Harris Dickinson, Daniel Brühl, Djimon Hounsou and Charles Dance star in the film.
Disney also removed 20th Century’s Bob’s Burgers from the calendar. It had been set for April 9. 20th Century’s Ron’s Gone Wrong has moved six months to Oct. 22, while Searchlight’s The Night House is now dated for July 16. Searchlight’s The Eyes of Tammy Faye also has found a date and will open Sept. 24 in limited release. Meanwhile, Searchlight’s horror movie Antlers, from Scott Cooper, also has a date and is now set for Oct. 29.
Finally, Guillermo del Toro’s Nightmare Alley, from Searchlight, will open Dec. 3 in limited release.
This is the latest in a series of high-profile moves this month, with MGM and Universal pushing back No Time to Die and Sony delaying Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Morbius, Uncharted and more.
