January openings normally are good for horror–surprise hits come in the cold..
But 2017’s January release of newest *yawn* edition of the AMITYVILLE horror has been delayed..
To the summer we now go!
Dimension Films has officially delayed Amityville: The Awakening until June 30th..
Let’s see how long that date lasts too.
It will also face a new DESPICABLE ME in theaters the same weekend..
Directed and co-written by Franck Khalfoun and produced by Jason Blum alongside co-writers Daniel Farrands, and Casey La Scala, Amityville: The Awakening stars Bella Thorne, Cameron Monaghan, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Thomas Mann, Jennifer Morrison and Kurtwood Smith.
….some consider this a commendable thing! Going against a big family movie in the middle of the heat of the summer.
Or .. as one said,
Why not just release this on a steaming service or on demand and get it over with? Hasn’t this been on the shelf for two or three years? I wonder if the cast will still be obligated to even promote it?
