The Jem and the Holograms movie release date has been announced by Universal Pictures. The studio will drop the feature film adaptation based on the 1980s Hasbro toy line and cartoon on October 23, 2015, hitting theaters just in time for Fall. Director Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) helms the quickly assembled musical adventure film, which paints the titular Jem as an orphaned teenager who becomes an internet sensation and subsequently embarks on a music-driven scavenger hunt with her bad. The picture is a Blumhouse Productions joint, which is mostly known for producing low budget horror films like the Paranormal Activity series and Sinister that go on to turn a big profit. The PG-rated Jem was similarly made on a relatively tight budget, with a cast led by Aubrey Peeples (Nashville) as Jem, Stefanie Scott (Flipped) as Kimber, Hayley Kiyoko (The Fosters) as Aja, and Aurora Perrineau (Pretty Little Liars) as Shana.
