STX announced the change, which sees the company counter-program “Bad Moms” against “Jason Bourne”
STX Entertainment is swapping the release dates for “Bad Moms” and “The Space Between Us,” with the latter film moving from July 29 to Aug. 19 and “Moms” taking over the earlier date.
“The Hangover” writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore wrote and directed the comedy “Bad Moms,” which stars Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, Jay Hernandez, Annie Mumolo, Jada Pinkett Smith and Christina Applegate. The film was produced by Suzanne Todd and Bill Block.
Peter Chelsom directed “The Space Between Us” from a script by Allan Loeb and Chelsom & Tinker Lindsay, based on a story by Stewart Schill and Richard B. Lewis & Loeb. Lewis produced the adventure film, which stars Gary Oldman, Asa Butterfield, Carla Gugino, and Britt Robertson.
In “Bad Moms,” Amy Mitchell (Kunis) puts her family first, second, and third. But her man-child husband, high-maintenance kids and idiot boss are taking a toll. She gives and gives, and gives and gives, and then gives a little more, but it’s never enough. When the alpha moms (Applegate, Mumolo, Pinkett Smith) at her kids’ school push her too far, Amy finally snaps. Good Amy becomes Bad Amy really fast — and she doesn’t go alone. Teaming up with two other misfit moms (Hahn and Bell), Amy gets a jolt of freedom that shakes up her life and might even make her a better mom.
In the interplanetary adventure film “The Space Between Us,” shortly after arriving to help colonize Mars, an astronaut dies while giving birth to the first human born on the red planet – never revealing who the father is. Thus begins the extraordinary life of Gardner Elliot – an inquisitive, highly intelligent boy who reaches the age of 16 having only met 14 people in his very unconventional upbringing. While searching for clues about his father, and the home planet he’s never known, Gardner begins an online friendship with a street smart girl named Tulsa. When he finally gets a chance to go to Earth, Gardner is eager to experience all of the wonders he could only read about on Mars. But after his explorations begin, scientists discover that Gardner’s organs can’t withstand Earth’s atmosphere. Gardner joins with Tulsa on a race against time to unravel the mysteries of how he came to be, and where he belongs in the universe.
