Fox Pushes Back Josh Trank's 'Fantastic Four' & 'Assasin's Creed' Again
Late last fall, 20th Century Fox pushed back the release dates of both their reboot of Fantastic Four and the video game adaptation Assassin's Creed. Now it looks like those dates have been changed yet again. The Wrap reports Fox has pushed Fantastic Four from its June 16th, 2015 release to later in the summer on August 7th, 2015. That's not surprising considering the fact that Guardians of the Galaxy has been cleaning up the box office in the weeks since hitting theaters on August 1st, mostly because August and September are usually empty of big releases as the calm before the storm that is awards season begins.
So fans will have to wait a couple more months to see the Fantastic Four come together again. The production has been wrapped for a little while now, but the only glimpse we've seen of the film directed by Josh Trank is the cast together at the end of principal photography. Fox is having a real issue sticking with their release dates lately. Last fall they also delayed Kingsman: Secret Service until March, then they bumped it up to October of this year, only to push it back to February 2015 again. As for Assassin's Creed starring Michael Fassbender and directed by Justin Kurzel, there's no indication of when we'll see that come together. Oh well, at least Fox is getting Deadpool off the ground finally.
