GAMBIT Set To Hit Theaters On October 7, 2016

tatum gambitOne of the best things to come out of the Sony Hack was the discovery of Channing Tatum’s unbridled enthusiasm for being an actor. If anyone else crowed about their film’s success like Tatum did about 22 Jump Street, they’d be branded a raging egotist. Tatum comes off as a lovably goof who really enjoys and takes pride in his job.

Taking this into consideration, you can’t really fault him for spoiling the release date of his Gambit film on Facebook:

Fox would confirm that release date latter in the day in a press release listing its film slate into 2017.

The announcement means that 2016 is shaping up to be a crowded year for comic book films. Gambit will be Fox’s third comic book film that year, joining Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse. The year also marks Warner’s big jump into the shared comic book movie universe with Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad and potentially Sony’s jump into it as well with Sinister Six. In addition, Marvel Studios has its typical two films per year–Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange and the sequel to last year’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot will be released. That makes a total of nine films. Yikes.

The press release also announced that Fantastic Four 2 will be moved up from its originally scheduled July 14, 2017 release date and will now come out June 2, 2017. Its spot will be taken by the as-yet-unnamed Planet of the Apes sequel.
