Lionsgate pushed the release back from June to August and made the announcement prior to CinemaCon earlier in the month.

The Crow reboot directed by Rupert Sanders and starring Bill Skarsgård has seen its release date pushed from June 7 to August 23.

Lionsgate announced the news prior to its presentation at CinemaCon earlier in the month (I was actually flying home from Vegas at the time).

The release date shift moves The Crow away from Bad Boys: Ride or Die, The Exorcism, and The Watchers, which is produced by M. Night Shyamalan and marks the directorial debut of his daughter.

Less competition

That August 23 release date doesn’t have as much competition, as also on the release slate is the Zoe Kravitz-directed Blink Twice movie starring Adria Arjona and Channing Tatum about a young waitress (Arjona) in Los Angeles who has her eye on tech entrepreneur Slater King (Tatum). On a dream vacation to his private island, strange things start to happen. Frida will have to uncover the truth if she wants to make it out alive.

The R-rated Slingshot also gets released which stars Casey Affleck and Laurence Fishburne, where an astronaut struggles to maintain his grip on reality aboard a possibly fatally compromised mission to Saturn’s moon, Titan.

Additional releases include The Forge and Place of Bones.

Alien: Romulus happens to be released a week prior on the 16th, and Kraven The Hunter starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson in Sony’s Spider-Man spinoff gets released a week after on the 30th.

Lionsgate shifting The Crow release date is interesting as it follows the backlash to the recent trailer.

The trailer, watch below, has 137k dislikes on YouTube, and the original director has even said the reboot shouldn’t be made.

What is The Crow about?
