Get out your day planner and start making some adjustments. A couple of Sundance movies, a highly anticipated entry from an auteur, and some blockbusters are getting release dates.

First up, Sofia Coppola's latest tale of bad girls, "The Bling Ring," is now stealing a June 14th bow as planned. The film stars Emma Watson alongside a group of smaller names-- Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Claire Pfister, Georgia Rock and Carlos Miranda (and Leslie Mann has a role too) -- in the based-on-a-true-story tale of a group of affluent teenagers who pulled off some brazen heists of celebrity homes, taking up to $3 million worth of goods. We'd wager a Cannes premiere (likely out of competition, or maybe in the edgier Un Certain Regard) is a strong possibility.

Next up, James Ponsoldt's Sundance Film Festival sensation "The Spectacular Now" will arrive, curiously, at the end of summer on August 2nd. We suppose that puts the kibosh on any shot at Oscar, and as the hotly buzzed "Smashed," also by Ponsoldt, failed to garner much steam in that regard, "The Spectacular Now" probably has a difficult chance of making that kind of headway. Rising young stars Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley star in the coming-of-age tale, one that we called "wise beyond its years, charismatic, measured and authentic in its depiction of the pains, confusions and insecurities of the teenage experience."

Also coming out of Sundance is "Toy's House," now retitled "The Kings Of Summer," and it has been slated for June 14th -- looks like you'll have a "Sophie's Choice" with Sofia Coppola's movie that weekend. The feature debut by director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (“Successful Alcoholics”) tells the tale of three kids who build a house in a clearing in the woods to get away from their families. Featuring a strong supporting cast including Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, Alison Brie and more, we said the film brings "what feels like a fresh comic voice."

While she didn't win the Oscar, "Beasts of the Southern Wild" star Quvenzhané Wallis is already on to her next thing, signing onto the "Annie" remake. And that film, a contemporary update produced by Will Smith and Jay-Z and helmed by "Easy A" director Will Gluck, will now arrive on Christmas Day 2014.

Lastly, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" featuring none other than Megan Fox, has been pushed back ever so slightly from May 16, 2014 to June 6, 2014. Cowabunga. [Deadline/THR]
