Warner Bros. has pushed back Guy Ritchie’s untitled King Arthur movie, starring Charlie Hunnam, from next July 22 to the following Presidents Day weekend on Feb. 17, 2017.
The King Arthur movie, which also stars Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey as Guinevere, Jude Law, Djimon Honsou and Katie McGrath, will open against Sony’s “Bad Boys 3” and 20th Century Fox’s “Maze Runner: The Death Cure.”
Warner Bros. will also move an untitled New Line horror film — also known as “Lights Out” — into the July 22 slot from its Sept. 9 slot. Warner Bros. announced Friday that it would open the Tom Hanks movie “Sully” into the Sept. 9 date.
The King Arthur movie is produced by Akiva Goldsman, Guy Ritchie, Joby Harold, Tory Tunnell and Charlie Hunnam. Village Roadshow co-produced and co-financed the King Arthur movie and “Sully.”
“Lights Out,” produced by James Wan, follows a woman who’s terrorized when the lights go out. It will open against Paramount/Skydance’s “Star Trek Beyond” and “Fox’s Ice Age: Collision Course.”
