The studio also moves the Johnny Depp sci-fi film “Transcendence” up a day to get an early start on the Easter weekend
Warner Bros. is moving the release of its Johnny Depp-Kate Mara sci-film movie “Transcendence” up a day, from Friday to Thursday, April 17, the studio said Wednesday.
The shift gives it one more day going into the Easter holiday weekend. Also set to debut that weekend are the Sony drama “Heaven Is for Real,” the horror film “Oculus” and the Disney documentary “Bears.”
The studio also said that “The Good Lie,” a drama starring Reese Witherspoon, will come out on Wednesday, Sept. 10. Set to open that same weekend are the Sony thriller “No Good Deed,” the Universal comedy “Search Party” and the Tina Fey-Jason Bateman comedy “This Is Where I Leave You,” also from WB.
The film is based on real-life events and and features Witherspoon as a brash American woman assigned to help four young Sudanese refugees (known as Lost Boys of Sudan) who win a lottery for relocation to the United States. Molly Smith (“The Blind Side”) is a producer, along with Brian Grazer and Ron Howard. Philippe Falardeau directs from a script by Margaret Nagle.
