Mopsy (Elizabeth Debicki), Flopsy (Margot Robbie), Benjamin (Colin Moody), Peter Rabbit (James Corden) and Cottontail (Aimee Horneg) in Columbia Pictures’ PETER RABBIT ?? 2: THE RUNAWY

It was the announcement a few weeks ago that Sony would June to 14 May was pushed onto Peter Rabbit: The Runaway, which made it clear to me that we would likely have a summer season for movies on Paramount, followed by moving A Quiet Place Part II from Labor Day to Memorial Day and just this week from Warner Bros. moved in the heights a week to 11 So I admit that my heart sank for a moment the first time I looked at the email announcing that Peter Rabbit 2 was late, but don’t worry, the new date is more important than that mere fact that it was delayed

The sequel with James Corden voice with Rose Byrne, Domhnall Gleeson and the franchise newcomer David Oyelowo with the singing talents of Margot Robbie and Elizabeth Debicki will now be released on March 2 Opened July.This is the date that was recently cleared by Illumination’s Minions: The Rise of Gru and that has moved on for another full year to May 1 Delayed July 2022, with that family-friendly Independence Day holiday was up for grabs, and Sony immediately pounced on it to claim it’s perfectly placed, two weeks after Pixar’s Luca and two weeks before Warner Bros.on???? Space Jam: A New Legacy And now the film directed by Will Gluck has its eighth (!) Release date

It is now a week after Universal F9 (whose date change from 28 May to 25 June probably sparked another round of last-minute changes to the summer release date) and opened a week before Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings May is now home to Black Widow (Jan. May), The Who Wish Me Dead (14 May), Spiral: From the book of the saw (21 May), Free Guy (21 May), A Quiet Place Part II (28 May) and Cruella (28 While Peter Rabbit 2 is unlikely to come close to the revenue of a sequel to Despicable Me Prequel / Minions (Despicable Me 3 raised $ 99 million in 2017 via a Fri-Tue vacation framework), it ain’t nothing
As mentioned 17 days ago, the first Peter Rabbit was a hit under the radar, making $ 110 million from a $ 25 million debut and $ 351 million worldwide with a $ 50 million budget A sequel, even if we might expect lower returns, was a no-brainer.Based on Beatrix Potter’s books, the film received mixed reviews and was unfortunate enough to open almost simultaneously with Paddington 2, which is rightly considered a masterpiece in terms of speaking of Animal Live Action Children’s Movies However, if Paddington 2 was as good as Babe, Peter Rabbit is a hell of a lot better than Gordy

The first film was a smart and entertaining “Rushmore for Kids” Frolicking Despite the controversy over the opening weekend over food allergy exploitation, the film made 7 times its budget in theaters, my middle son (nine years old, ten years old) was a fan of the first and won’t be thrilled if I tell him that he has to wait two more months for the sequel. As for the whole summer schedule, we’re pretty close to “locked” Give or take if Black Widow stays around (a delay for this Marvel prequel could start another chain reaction) and if The Kings Man and The Hitman’s Bodyguard decide not to both end on Jan. Open in August
