Universal Pictures announced release dates for a slew of movies today. Among them: The Baltasar Kormakur-directed 3D adventure Everest is set for February 27, 2015, and Legendary Pictures’ haunted house pic Crimson Peak, from helmer Guillermo del Toro, is due October 16, 2015. Everest, Working Title’s mountain-climbing disaster pic backed by Cross Creek and Walden Media, is set to go up against Focus Features’ Ryan Reynolds sci-fi thriller Selfless. Crimson Peak, which saw Benedict Cumberbatch exit the lead role and be replaced by Thor baddie Tom Hiddleston, has the 2015 pre-Halloween weekend to itself for now. As for this year’s trick-or-treat fare, the horror pic Ouija — inspired by the Hasbro board game — will come knocking October 24, battling for screams against Paramount’s Paranormal Activity 5. Also due in 2014 are Legendary’s As Above, So Below (August 15), from director John Erick Dowdle, and the Liam Neeson thriller A Walk Among The Tombstones (September 19). The sequel Pitch Perfect 2, which added Elizabeth Banks as director this week, opens May 15, 2015. The studio also set a new working title for the formerly-a-mouthful Untitled Illumination Entertainment 2016 Project 1. Now a more descriptive and manageable Untitled Pets Project, its date remains February 12, 2016. Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet and Kevin Hart are making their animated-feature debuts in the 3D pic about what your pets do when you leave the house.
