Plenty of movement on the release schedule front this week with both the "Point Break" remake and "Harry Potter" spinoff "Fantastic Beasts" getting release dates and the kiddies will have to wait another year for "Alvin & The Chipmunks 4" (evidently Theodore has a side project he's working on)

Plenty of movement on the release schedule front this week with both the "Point Break" remake and "Harry Potter" spinoff "Fantastic Beasts" getting release dates and the kiddies will have to wait another year for "Alvin & The Chipmunks 4" (evidently Theodore has a side project he's working on).

THE DROP---Fox Searchlight---IN 9/12/14   OUT 9/19/14
Try to remember a kind of September...with so many movies.  This Tom Hardy thriller moves from one overloaded weekend to another.

UNTITLED ARMORED CAR COMEDY---Relativity---IN 8/14/15
Zach Galafianakis, Owen Wilson comedy hoping that moviegoers may be getting tired of "Bourne", which currently sits on that August 14 date.

POINT BREAK---Warner Brothers---IN 8/7/15
Remake of 1991 Keanu Reeves vehicle slotted against Sony's "Goosebumps" and Fox's "Assassin's Creed"

ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS 4---Fox---IN 12/16/16   OUT 12/11/15
Probably not a good idea to go head-to-head with "Kung Fu Panda 3" which was 12 days later in 2015.

FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM---Warner Brothers---IN 11/18/16
The first "Harry Potter" spinoff sits by itself on this pre-Thanksgiving slot.

WILD---Fox Searchlight---IN 12/5/14
Jean-Marc Valle's follow up to "Dallas Buyers Club", which stars Reese Witherspoon snuggles into Oscar-appropriate December 5th
