Charlie Brown To Go Head To Head With Ant-Man In 2015
The good news is that 20th Century Fox is feeling they can complete a Peanuts movie faster than expected and will be bringing it to theaters as quickly as possible. The bad news is that it's being moved to a weekend where there already exists another high-profile, highly-anticipated film.
Box Office Mojo says that the studio has adjusted their release schedule a bit and have moved the untitled Peanuts movie from November 25, 2015 to November 6, 2015. Part of the reason this is such a strange choice is because the movie will now be squaring off directly against Edgar Wright's Ant-Man, the Marvel Studios film that will be immediately following The Avengers 2. If the second Avengers movie is as big a hit as the first was, it could mean very good things for Wright's movie, but also really bad things for Peanuts. That said, the move also pushes the movie away from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2, which Lionsgate will have out on November 20, 2015. A perfect example of "out of the frying pan, into the fire" if I've ever seen one.
But that's not the only change Fox has made, as B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations has also been moved up the schedule from Peanuts' new date on November 6, 2015 to September 25, 2015. It is currently the only film to be scheduled for that date. Anthony Leondis will direct the movie, which follows a ghost who is having trouble haunting and decides to return to ghost school.
