It's been a dizzying day for studio release boards as Warners blinked and moved "Batman Vs Superman" off its original May 6, 2016 and avoids a battle royale with "Captain America". The studio also planted flags in 9 release dates for upcoming, yet untitled DC comics films.

Batman


It's been a dizzying day for those studio release boards as Warners blinked and moved "Batman Vs Superman" off its original May 6, 2016, thereby avoiding a battle royale with "Captain America".  The new date for the film is March 25th of 2016 against "Beverly Hills Cop" and "Christ The Lord".  Movement by one of the studios has been anticipated for some time and quite frankly, most in the business figured it would be the Disney gang who would look elsewhere for a prime release date.  But, as "Guardians of the Galaxy" showed this past weekend, never underestimate Marvel.  The studio also planted flags in 9, yes 9, release dates for upcoming, as of yet untitled, DC comics movies, going all the way to 2020.  The studio also claimed two release spots for other untitled "event" films as well along with moving its Dean Devlin directed, Gerard Butler starring, thriller, "Geostorm", from March 25th, 2016 into simply a 2016 TBA date.

Kingsman

Elsewhere, Fox decided that 2015 might be better for Colin Firth and "Kingsman: The Secret Service".  The film vacates its previous October 24th date and onto February 13th of next year, going against a film you might have heard of already, "50 Shades of Grey".  The company also moved their "Poltergeist" recharge from the aforementioned February 13 position and into the summer on July 24th, a date currently occupied only by the Judd Apatow/Amy Schumer comedy, "Trainwreck".
