WB Slots Shane Black's 'The Nice Guys' Into June 2016, HTTYD 3 Moves Back To 2017

Shane Black is one of the true talents in this business–he has directed “Iron Man 3” and the superb “Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang” and was the screenwriter on all of the “Lethal Weapon” films and now his third turn behind the camera, “The Nice Guys”, has a release date as Warners will release the film on June 17, 2016.  The main competition on that date is BV/Pixar’s “Finding Nemo” follow-up, “Finding Dory”, which obviously is complete counter-programming.  The film, which features a powerhouse cast including Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling, focuses on a private eye who investigates the apparent suicide of a fading porn star in 1970s Los Angeles and uncovers a conspiracy.

In other release schedule news, “How To Train Your Dragon 3”, which had been sitting on that “Finding Dory” site, side-stepped that battle royale and moved to June 9, 2017, which it has currently all to itself but only one week before a Pixar untitled film.
