Warner Bros. Pushes THE CONJURING 2 to 2016 and Schedules Untitled Horror Film for Halloween 2015

Warner Bros. started developing a sequel to The Conjuring before the first movie opened.  That bet paid off when The Conjuring grossed over $300 million worldwide.  After two weeks, The Conjuring spinoff Annabelle has already reached $166 million worldwide.  The studio, who must be thrilled with the new horror franchise, had scheduled The Conjuring 2 for October 23, 2015 with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga set to return as the paranormal investigators.  However, Warner Bros. pumped the brakes a bit, delaying The Conjuring 2 to 2016.

In a corresponding move, Warner Bros. scheduled a untitled horror film from New Line in its place on October 23, 2015.  Deadline speculates the unspecified project could be 1) Crawlspace, starring Michael Vartan as a widower who moves into a house troubled by “a very disturbing secret from the past” or, 2) Superstition, set at “a house that was once the site of a witch’s execution.”

Superhero Movie Release Dates: From 2015 to 2020

superhero-movie-release-dates

There’s no denying that the most popular genre around these days is that of the superhero movie.  Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy proved that comic book adaptations could be just as dramatic and heavy as non-genre films, Marvel Studios jumpstarted a massive interconnected series of superhero movies that were significantly more colorful and humorous, and audiences have been turning out to both kinds of superhero movies in droves.  With every major studio now working to turn its own comic book properties into the next big thing, it’s sometimes tough to keep track of what’s coming out when, who’s in it, and how it fits into the overall picture.  Not to worry, though, because we here at Collider have you covered.

After the jump, you’ll find a comprehensive guide of superhero movie release dates for every major comic book adaptation on the calendar, going all the way up to the year 2020.  Moreover, we’ll be updating this guide regularly with the most current information, so if you’re ever looking for the latest news on a specific film, you can come right back here for a quick overview.

now-you-see-me-2-release-date

Lionsgate is putting some of their affairs in order when it comes to the next few years and have set two big release dates.  First, Now You See Me 2, the sequel to last year’s surprise comedy hit (it did better than Hangover III and Pacific Rim - which it only cost a fraction of – in the states and pulled in some serious dough internationally) will come out on June 10th, 2016.  We’ve been tracking this one for a while, but hadn’t seen any firm commitments (though director Jon M. Chu) has been rumored for some time.  Now we know that Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine will all be returning and that Ed Solomon and Pete Chiarelli will be writing the script.

While the synopsis for Now You See Me 2 is still under wraps, we know a little bit more info on the upcoming Dirty Grandpa.  Hit the jump for more.

TERMINATOR: GENISYS Sequels Get Release Dates; Paramount’s THE GAMBLER to Get Limited 2014 Run

Well, if Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions’ fifth installment in the rebooted Terminator franchise is going to bear the title Terminator: Genisys, then it’s certainly feasible that the film’s follow-ups could be called Terminator: Genisyx and Terminator: Geniseptem, right?  While the titles of the sixth and seventh films may be up for debate, their release dates have now been established.  To further confuse things, even though the fifth film comes out in 2015, the next two in the series won’t debut until 2017 and 2018.  And they’re being referred to as Terminator 2 and Terminator 3.  Oy.  Hit the jump for more details.

Marvel Announces May 3rd, 2018 Movie; Could This Be AVENGERS 3?

by     Posted 89 days ago

avengers-3-release-date

Last week Marvel announced 5 Untitled Movies with release dates stretching all the way up until May of 2019.  At the time, I guessed that the one bearing the date of May 3rd, 2019 would be Avengers 3 since that franchise’s signature early May release date was missing from the 2018 slate and 2017 seemed just a bit too soon to get everyone together again.

I’m doing away with that theory at this point because Marvel just announced yet another film for May 4th, 2018.  That first week of May is Avengers territory and 2018 is one whole year sooner that the studio gets to trot out their most valuable IP.  It makes sense that they want as few gaps between these things as possible.  So now I’m going to guess that  Avengers 3 hits on May 4th, 2018.  Hit the jump for more on this potential Avengers 3 release date.

We’ll be updating this piece with more data as our analysis comes in, but could the May 3rd, 2019 date be when we’ll see Avengers 3?  The announced Marvel release dates are:

  • Marvel Untitled – 11/3/17 wide
  • Marvel Untitled – 7/6/18 wide
