Earlier today Sony revealed its slate of big releases up until the end of 2017, with an added bonus in 2019. There is plenty of good news here for horror fans, too.

The dates are for the US, but I would guess that as most of these are major releases, the UK will be day and date the same, or not long after.

The most exciting news here for horror fans is that the long in development adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, which has Nikolaj Arcel directing, finally has a secured release date of 13th January 2017. Considering how long this has taken to finally get to cinemas, and the fact it is the start of a movie franchise and TV series, this is great news!

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter follows just two weeks later on 27th January 2017, making January 2017 a good month for horror fans.

Underworld 5 is set to be released on 21st October 2016, just over a year away, and Patient Zero now arrives on 2nd September 2016.

It is also worth noting that Edgar Wright’s first film after the Ant-Man issues, Baby Driver, arrives on 17th March 2017, though I suspect the UK will get it slightly earlier.

A big surprise here is not the inclusion of Bad Boys 3 on 17th February 2017, but the announcement of Bad Boys 4 on 3rd July 2019!

Here is the full list of US release dates:

  • Money Monster – April 8, 2016
  • The Shallows – June 24, 2016
  • Ghostbusters – July 15, 2016
  • Patient Zero – September 2, 2016
  • The Magnificent Seven – September 23, 2016
  • Underworld 5 – October 21, 2016
  • Passengers – December 21, 2016
  • Jumanji – December 25, 2016
  • The Dark Tower – January 13, 2017
  • Resident Evil 6 – January 27, 2017
  • Bad Boys 3 – February 17, 2017

Matt WavishA keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
