Fox is making making some changes to its calender.
The studio has given its Murder on the Orient Express follow-up — an adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Death on the Nile — a Nov. 8, 2019 release. The Kenneth Branagh-backed project will go up against Disney’s holiday film comedy Nicole, starring Anna Kendrick.
Moving from summer to a holiday slot is Alita: Battle Angel, which has been pushed to Dec. 21. The crowded date is already occupied by Warner Bros.’ Aquaman, Paramount’s Bumblebee spinoff and the Will Ferrell-John C. Reilly comedy Holmes & Watson.
Shane Black’s Predator reboot is switching places with fellow Fox title The Darkest Minds, with the latter hitting theaters Aug. 3 and the former taking the Sept. 14 slot. The Jennifer Yuh Nelson-directed thriller will go up against Denzel Washington’s The Equalizer 2 and the Kate McKinnon comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me, while The Predator will open opposite Dwayne Johnson wrestling comedy Fighting with my Family.
In addition to the big tentpole releases, the studio has also dated Blue Sky Films animated musical film Foster for March 5, 2021.
