Sacha Baron Cohen's Comedy 'Grimsby' Moves to February 2016

Grimsby

After being originally slated for release this summer, Sacha Baron Cohen's spy and soccer hooligan comedy Grimsby has been pushed back seven months and won't arrive until February 26th, 2016. We're not sure what the hold up is, especially since the film was shooting last summer (get a first look here), but maybe test screenings aren't working out so they're going to reshoot some stuff. It's much easier to do that kind of thing with a comedy than a blockbuster. Or maybe it's just not a good summer release. That's really just speculation on our part, but now we know why we hadn't seen any official photos from the film yet.

Here's the Twitter update from ERC Box Office announcing the release date change:

For those who don't know, Grimsby follows a soccer hooligan forced to team up with his a British black ops agent brother (Mark Strong). The film also features Penelope Cruz playing a philanthropic corporate leader who might be keeping a secret (she's probably a villain) as well as Rebel Wilson and Cohen's wife Isla Fisher. The film is directed by Clash of the Titans and Now You See Me director Louis Leterrier and we hope this comedy actually ends up being good. You never know with Sacha Baron Cohen.

UPDATE: The Weinstein Company has moved the Jake Gyllenhaal boxing drama Southpaw directed by Antoine Fuqua into the vacated July 31st slot this summer.
