Just as the end of the day on Wall Street often brings items of note, the end of the day today produced a few release schedule changes of note. First off, Universal moved “The Loft”, a thriller which stars James Marsden and Karl Urban dealing with a murder in the apartment they have rented for extra-marital affairs, out of August 29th to a date yet to be determined. Not wanting to leave that slot vacant, the company moved the Paris catacombs thriller “As Above, So Below” onto that August 29th date where it will battle it out against the horror titles “Jessabelle” from Lionsgate and Blumhouse and “November Man”, Relativity’s thriller with Pierce Brosnan.
In addition, Guillermo del Toro’s “Pacific Rim 2” will indeed be made and does indeed have a release date but don’t start queuing up quite yet as the picture isn’t slated for release until April 7, 2017. The original just eked out $100 million domestic but did a very sweet $410 million worldwide.
