20th Century Fox has announced new release dates on three films, including staking out July 29, 2016, for its Untitled Planet of the Apes project. It will be released two weeks after the next installment in another franchise Ice Age 5. It also has announced a date shuffle for Valentine’s Day next year. It is dropping in the remake of the horror classic Poltergeist (produced by MGM) on Feb. 13, 2015, and moving the romancer The Longest Ride off of that weekend so as not to compete with Focus Features’ highly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey. In other words, Fox blinked. The Longest Ride, based on the Nicholas Sparks book, will now debut on April 3, around Easter. The studio also just moved its sequel Night At the Museum 3 into the Dec. 19, 2014, slot and now will go toe to toe with The Hobbit: There And Back Again from Warner Bros. It had been at Christmas previously. Fox’s R-rated buddy action/comedy Let’s Be Cops is set to go wide on August 13, 2014.
