The July 21 date was looking a little bit crowded before the move by "Pitch Perfect 3," as Warner Bros.' untitled Christopher Nolan movie and EuropaCorp's "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets" were all slated for that date.

Sony's untitled Spider-Man reboot is currently scheduled for a release on July 28.

In April, Universal announced that Legendary's "Pacific Rim 2," to be directed by Guillermo del Toro, would move from April 7, 2017 to Aug. 4, 2017.

A few weeks ago, del Toro said that "as far as I'm concerned, it's not gone. We're still on it," when reports surfaced that the movie had been halted indefinitely.
