It will face off against Warner Bros’ action remake Point Break, Focus’ sci-fi thriller Self/Less and the Weinstein Company’s boxing drama Southpaw. Moving into M:I5‘s December 25 slot is the studio’s live-action/CGI hybrid Monster Trucks, which had been set for May 29. It will rev up against a pair of Fox pics: kids sequel Alvin And The Chipmunks 4 and drama Joy.
