Sony Moves Up SPIDER-MAN Three Weeks, Pushes JUMANJI Remake Back Seven Months


Unsurprisingly, when one big movie shifts its scheduled release date, everyone else scrambles to fill in the void left by that change. Such is the case now that Star Wars: Episode VIII has moved from its previously announced May 26, 2017 date to December 15, 2017.

As they moved Episode VIII, Disney also moved their next Pirates Of The Caribbean film Dead Men Tell No Tales from its July 7th berth to the vacated May 26th date. This is allowing Sony to move their untitled Spider-Man film, which they are producing in conjunction with Disney’s Marvel Studios, from its previously announced release date of July 28, 2017 to July 7th.

The new Spider-Man film will feature Tom Holland as the teenaged, wall-crawling superhero. He will make his premier in this spring’s Captain America: Civil War.

Moving into the spot vacated by Spider-Man is Sony’s remake of Jumanji, which was originally scheduled for Christmas this year. However, that film only found a director in the form of Jake Kasdan last week, so it being pushed back comes as no surprise.
