The Martin Luther King Jr film, "Selma", has been given a limited release date of Christmas Day before going wide on January 9th by Paramount.  Also, Universal has slated the N.W.A. biopic "Straight Outta Compton" for August 14th of next year, replacing the latest "Bourne" entry, which moved to 2016.  Also, the Latino drama "Spare Parts" finds a home and Steven Spielberg carves out space for his next two projects.

SELMA---PARAMOUNT---IN 12/25/14 (LIMITED) 1/9/15 (WIDE)
Just in time for awards season, the MLK Jr film stars David Oyelowo as Dr. King, along with Tom Wilkinson, Dylan Baker, Giovanni Ribisi, Tim Roth and Oprah Winfrey, who will be one of the producers on the film along with Plan B.

STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON---UNIVERSAL---IN 8/14/15
Rap group N.W.A.'s members included Dr. Dre and Ice Cube and this biopic will look into their beginnings on the streets of South Central Los Angeles.  Right now the films sits on a week that is only occupied by Relativity's armored car project with Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson and Kristen Wiig.

NEXT BOURNE CHAPTER---UNIVERSAL---IN 7/15/16   OUT 8/14/15
There was a rumor dancing around Hollywood last week that Matt Damon would return as the master spy.  That rumor has been refuted by producers however so it still looks like Jeremy Renner as Bourne.

SPARE PARTS---LIOSNGATE/PANTELION---IN 1/16/15
Four undocumented Mexican-American students form a robotics club and, along with their teacher and a bunch of spare parts, proceed to compete against the vaunted M.I.T. in a national robotics competition. Alexa Pena Vega, George Lopez and Marisa Tomei star.   It's a crowded date--Warners has "Man From U.N.C.L.E." with Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer, Weinstein has the animated sports adventure, "Underdogs", Sony has Kevin Hart's "Wedding Ringer" and Universal has a yet-untitled Michael Mann drama.

UNTITLED SPIELBERG COLD WAR THRILLER---UNIVERSAL---10/16/15
Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks and the Coen Brothers.  Yeah, this should work.

THE BFG---BUENA VISTA---IN 7/1/16
Steven Spielberg is again in the director's chair with the film adaptation of the popular children's book.
