Fox also pushed its superhero reboot “Fantastic Four” from March 2015 to June 19, putting it in the thick of the summer tentpole season. It shifted comic book spy tale “Secret Service” from Nov. 14, 2014, to March 6, 2015. And “Assassin’s Creed,” based on the video game, will now open on Aug. 7, 2015, rather than June 19 of that year.

“Susan Cooper,” which will feature McCarthy in a James Bond-type role, will share its May 22, 2015, opening date with Disney’s sci-fi film “Tomorrowland.” “Susan Cooper” reteams McCarthy with Rose Byrne, with whom she co-starred in Feig’s 2011 comedy hit “Bridesmaids.” Feig also directed McCarthy and Sandra Bullock in this summer’s comedy hit “The Heat,” which has taken in nearly $230 million worldwide.

“Secret Service” is directed by Matthew Vaughn and stars Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Caine.
