Sony Pictures Movie Slate for 2016-2017 and Beyond Announced
Earlier this week Sony Pictures announced their theatrical movie release dates for 2016 and 2017. While many of the movies are not kid-friendly, there are a few that are. There is a remake of Jumanji scheduled for Christmas 2016. Barbie is scheduled for summer 2017. As fans of the superhero genre, we are definitely interested in the rebooted Spider-Man scheduled for July 2017 especially now that Sony is working closely with MARVEL to incorporate their films into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. You can get a sneak peek at the rebooted Spider-Man in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War where he will make his first appearance.
The press release below has more details. Which films on the list is your family looking forward to?
