Briefly: Warner Bros. just firmly planted their Oscar hopeful on the release schedule. They dated American Sniper, starring Bradley Cooper and directed by Clint Eastwood, for a limited release on Christmas Day. It’s the real life story of Navy SEAL and marksman Chris Kyle, which Steven Spielberg was once going to direct.
They’ve also shifted the release date of Guy Ritchie‘s The Man from U.N.C.L.E., starring Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer, from January 16, 2015 to August 14, 2015 and moved the Point Break remake up one week to July 31, 2015. Those two dates are interesting, especially based on the huge openings Disney and Paramount had on concurrent weekends in August. You have to think Warner Bros. is hoping for similar success.
