STX Entertainment has made two release-date changes to its upcoming schedule. First, the horror film Bye Bye Man is being moved from December 9 to January 13. The change was made after the pic was first slotted in October around Halloween, then moved up to June, then back to December. Now, it’s being pushed to next year at a time when horror films traditionally have opened well.
Meanwhile, after switching places with its Bad Moms release date, sci-fi film The Space Between Us is being moved up by only a few days now, to December 16 from the following Wednesday, December 21. The film is entering into a crowded holiday season — one that has several big releases surrounding it including as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Collateral Beauty and La La Land coming out also Friday the 16th. Now it will be released five days earlier than Patriots Day, Sing, Assassin’s Creed and Passengers.
