The company has been on a release-date roll, slating a dozen films since Friday. In its second announcement today, Warner Bros has set theatrical debuts for the Untitled New Line Horror Film (October 3), Mean Moms (May 8, 2015), The Conjuring 2 (October 23, 2015) and How To Be Single (February 12, 2016). The NL horror pic is getting a jump on this year’s Halloween fare, steering clear of Universal’s Dracula Untold (October 17) and Paramount’s Paranormal Activity 5 (October 24). Warners must have good vibes about Mean Moms, the feature directing debut of veteran TV helmer Beth McCarthy-Miller. The comedy about the cutthroat world of competitive parenting in the suburbs has no stars booked but has a plum start-of-summer launch date to itself for now. The sequel to last summer’s horror hit The Conjuring is slated for the 2015 trick-or-treat season, a week after Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak begins its Halloween haunt. And How To Be Single is the first rom-com set for the 2016 Valentine’s Day weekend, going up against the Lionsgate actioner Gods Of Egypt and Universal’s Untitled Pets Project from Illumination Entertainment.
