Audiences will get to see the upcoming Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne comedy Instant Family earlier than expected.
Paramount is so keen on the film that it is moving up its release from Feb. 15, 2019, to Nov. 16 of this year. The new date means that the family comedy, directed by Sean Anders, will be able to partake in the lucrative Thanksgiving corridor.
The studio says Instant Family secured some of the highest test scores of any Paramount film in the past decade. Paramount also pointed to the success of such past November family films as The Blind Side and Wonder in explaining its decision to relocate the movie.
Instant Family is a reunion for Wahlberg and Anders, who worked together on Paramount’s Daddy’s Home and Daddy’s Home 2.
The pic centers on a couple who decide to start a family and adopt through the foster-care system, only to find themselves raising three wild kids who have no interest in being parented.
Octavia Spencer, Isabela Moner, Tig Notaro and Margo Martindale co-star.
