The Crow Reboot Pushed Back to August, Saw 11 Delayed by a Year

On its new date, The Crow will go up against Amazon MGM’s Zoë Kravitz’s feature directorial debut, the suspense thriller Blink Twice, as well as Sony’s Kendrick Brothers’ faith-based title The Forge.

The Crow, based on the original graphic novel by James O’Barr, follows soulmates Eric Draven (Skarsgård) and Shelly Webster (FKA Twigs), who are brutally murdered when the demons of her dark past catch up with them. Given the chance to save his true love by sacrificing himself, Eric sets out to seek merciless revenge on their killers, traversing the worlds of the living and the dead to put the wrong things right. Danny Huston also stars.

Standing alone among studio wide entries June 7 is Sony’s Bad Boys: Ride or Die.

Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures’ Saw XI is still in development to make it perfect and will move out of its September 27 release date to September 26, 2025. Oren Koules and Mark Burg produce. The franchise through 10 movies has amassed north of a $1 billion in box office.

Taking over Saw XI‘s release date of September 27 is another genre movie, the Halle Berry title Never Let Go, from director Alexandre Aja and producers Shawn Levy, Dan Cohen, Dan Levine and Aja. Blurb for the psychological thriller: As Evil takes over the world beyond their front doorstep, the only protection for a mother (Lionsgate’s Monster’s Ball Oscar Best Actress winner Berry) and her twin sons is their house and their family’s protective bond. Needing to stay connected at all times – even tethering themselves with ropes – they cling to one another, urging each other to never let go. But when one of the boys questions if the evil is real, the ties that bind them together are severed, triggering a terrifying fight for survival. Never Let Go, executive produced by Berry and Holly Jeter, remains the only studio wide entry on Sept. 27-29.

Smart move on The Crow to move their date. Bad Boys 4 moved their original date to compete with The Crow, but after the trailer divided fans online, it seems like it was smart to move The Crow to August, where the summer movie experience is less crowded.

I have heard that the footage shown of The Crow at CinemaCon wasn't bad, so when the film drops at the end of the summer I will definitely check it out in theaters.
