20th Century Fox Moves Release Dates For ‘Kingsman’ Prequel And ‘Ford Vs. Ferrari’

It’s no secret that movies get their release dates changed on a frequent basis. It’s usually done to either give the film a better box office chance or gain some award buzz. 20th Century Fox unveiled some major changes for two upcoming films.

The Great Switch

The film company decided to give the Kingsman prequel The Great Game a huge shift. Instead of its November 15, 2019 release date, it will hit theaters on February 14, 2020. Having a Valentine Day’s release is nothing new for Warner Bros. Winter’s Tale and Music and Lyrics both made their way to theaters on that special day.

The Kingsman prequel is a major departure from the usual spy comedy found in the previous movies. As a period drama, this will give fans an origin story about the Kingsman’s creation. The cast for the prequel includes Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Djimon Hounsou, and Stanley Tucci.

Battle On The Road

With The Kingsman prequel moving dates, another film will take its original spot. Ford v. Ferrari will land the November 15, 2019 date. The movie was originally slated to be released on June 28, 2019. This feature follows the heated rivalry between car companies Ford and Ferrari at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Filming took place last summer at various locations in France, Atlanta, New Orleans, and California.

And The Award Goes To…?

One major reason for this particular switch is awards season. As a drama, Ford v. Ferrari features all of the elements for huge accolades. Biographical movies always tend to do wonders at the Golden Globes and Oscars. If that’s not enough, its cast will get everyone talking. Oscar winners Christian Bale and Matt Damon and Golden Globe nominee Caitriona Balfe will surely bring amazing performances.

With Oscar-nominated director James Mangold on hand, Ford v. Ferrari can’t go wrong.

When Real-Life Plays A Part In TV Plotlines

Not every show has its plot lined out from the moment the pilot airs, and still, sometimes real-life can get in the way. Even the best laid plans can go awry, and sometimes plotlines are created entirely to accommodate an actor’s unexpected personal issue. From pregnancies to off-set injuries (and of course plenty of on-set injuries), writers are reworking scripts so that you’d never know something else was happening behind the scenes. Think you know why an actor exited a show? We’ll bet you didn’t even realize that some major show plots happened out of serendipity. Read on to find out how in some cases, the truth really is stranger than fiction.
