Sony announces release dates for Silver and Black, The Nightingale, and more
Sony Pictures just announced a slew of release date for upcoming films like the Black Cat and Silver Sable Marvel adaptation Silver and Black, The Nightingale and more.
Silver and Black, which will be directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (The Secret Life of Bees), was originally set to be released in October of 2018. The comic book adaptation will now hit theaters on February 8, 2019. The film will be up against The LEGO Movie 2 that day. There is currently no casting info for the film.
Bad Boys for Life has been pushed back from November 9, 2018 to a to-be-determined date. Director Joe Carnahan (The A-Team, The Grey) left the project back in May. Will Smith (I Am Legend) has been on the long-gestating project and reportedly spoke to Martin Lawrence (Big Momma’s House) about it. “I saw Martin a few weeks ago,” Smith told BBC 1 in February 2016 (via The Verge). “I haven’t seen him for about two years. We just looked at each other. We hugged. In that moment, we knew we were making another ‘Bad Boys.’ We’re definitely doing another one.”
Will Ferrell (Step Brothers) and John C. Reilly’s (Talladega Nights) Holmes & Watson is moving from August 3, 2018 to the original date for Bad Boys for Life, November 9, 2018, putting it in competition with Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables) is up to replace Amy Schumer (Train Wreck) as the lead and Fun Mom Dinner director Alethea Jones may direct. The film has moved to August 8, 2018, making the date 8/8/18. No word if the odd Wednesday release date means something, but 8’s are awfully curvy…
Game of Thrones and Westworld director Michelle MacLaren’s newest offering The Nightingale has moved from August 10, 2018 to January 25, 2019, a date free from other releases at the moment. Based on Kristin Hannah’s best-selling novel, the film tells the story of two sisters coming of age in France on the eve of World War II, and their struggle to survive and resist the German occupation of France.
