Lionsgate has pushed back two of its films set to open in 2017 — the final film in the “Divergent” series and “Power Rangers.”

“Ascendant,” the fourth and final film in the “Divergent” series, will be pushed back from March 24, 2017 to June 9, 2017. “Power Rangers” is being moved from Jan. 13, 2017 to March 24, 2017, taking the place of Shailene Woodley‘s YA action finale.

This is the second time “Power Rangers” has been moved, with its original release date having been July 22, 2016. The project was announced in 2014, and stars Becky G., Ludi Lin, Naomi Scott, Dacre Montgomery and R.J. Cyler. The film is being directed by Dean Israelite.

“Allegiant,” the third film in the “Divergent” franchise, is set to open on March 18, 2016. The first film has grossed $150.9 million dollars since its 2014 debut.

Robert Schwentke is directing “Ascendant,” who also directed “Allegiant,” and the fourth and final film will star Woodley, Theo James, Zoe Kravitz, Naomi Watts, Ansel Elgort and Jeff Daniels
