Last year Open Road films pushed the release date of Oliver Stone’s Snowden back from Christmas, where it would have had to compete with Star Wars: The Force Awakens and a handful of Oscar contenders, to May 2016. That wasn’t exactly a vote of confidence for the film based on the life of famed NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, and it would have forced Stone’s latest to contend with Captain America: Civil War. Snowden will no longer have to worry about Marvel, as the film has once again been pushed back, this time to early fall.

As shown in the trailers for The Night Before, Jonathan Levine's latest film centers on best friends played by Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie, who attempt to have the most booze-soaked, drug-fueled final Christmas hurrah before their responsibilities get in the way.

Snowden was originally given a winter release date, putting it right in the middle of awards season, but Open Road recently removed Oliver Stone’s Edward Snowden film from the release schedule, pushing it back to sometime in 2016. It was a move that confused some and seemed like a bad omen to others, but now we know exactly when to expect Stone’s latest — and you’ll have to wait a bit longer than you’d probably like.

Review: ‘The Walk’ Fails to Capture the Beauty of the Twin Tower High-Wire Feat

Following a press screening of Robert Zemeckis’ The Walk, the opening film at the New York Film Festival, the director said part of what inspired his movie was that Philippe Petit’s real-life walk was never captured on film. While there are photographs of Petit walking on a high-wire between the Twin Towers on August 7, 1974, as explored in the Oscar-winning documentary Man on Wire, video footage of his audacious illegal performance doesn’t exist. In the film, Zemeckis attempts to turn the thrilling walk into an immersive experience with 3D and IMAX, but some moments, especially ones as majestic as Petit’s walk, should remain an unseen mystery.
