Lionsgate’s Adaptation Of Wonder Relocates To November

13 February 2017 2:42 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A strong reaction from early test screenings has prompted Lionsgate to push its upcoming adaptation of Wonder back to November, according to Variety.

Initially slated for theatrical release on April 7th, Stephen Chbosky’s star-studded drama will now open opposite Justice League on November 17th. Lionsgate is reportedly hoping to cater to a family-friendly audience with today’s switcheroo, after deeming the mid-November corridor more “commercially viable” than the film’s original due date. An early April release would have seen Wonder go up against the likes of Zach Braff’s Going in Style, The Case for Christ and Smurfs: The Lost Village which, incidentally, also features Julia Roberts in a prominent role.

When it comes to Wonder, Roberts will play the part of Isabel Pullman, the mother of the young August (Auggie) Pullman who struggles to assimilate into everyday life due to his unsightly facial deformity. It’s a »

Julia Roberts Drama ‘Wonder’ Moves to November (Exclusive)

13 February 2017 12:58 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Julia Roberts fans will need to wait a few more months to see the “Pretty Woman” star back on the big screen. “Wonder,” an upcoming drama about a boy with facial differences that features Roberts as his fiercely supportive mother, will hit theaters just in time for Thanksgiving. Lionsgate, the studio behind the film, has moved its debut from April 7, 2017, to Nov. 17, 2017, Variety has learned.

The decision was made after “Wonder” had a strong reaction from test screening audiences, particularly those with families. Lionsgate believes the new date will be more commercially viable. In its former perch, “Wonder” would have faced off against “Going in Style,” a comedy with Alan Arkin and Morgan Freeman; “The Case for Christ,” a faith-based drama; and “Smurfs: The Lost Village,” which features a vocal turn by Roberts as Smurfwillow. Now, “Wonder” will debut on the same weekend as “Justice League, »

10 January 2017 1:03 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate executives touted their upcoming movie slate to investors, focusing primarily on “Power Rangers,” “Robin Hood,” and “Kingkiller Chronicle,” on Tuesday during the company’s inaugural Investor Day.

La La Land” won a record seven Golden Globes on Sunday and has already grossed almost $52 million at the U.S. box office after only a month in limited release. The musical is playing at 1,515 North American locations and is expanding its run in coming weeks.

“We’re embracing unique filmmaker visions and are the first port of call,” said motion picture group president Erik Feig.

Lionsgate is also handling the release of Mel Gibson’s “Hacksaw Ridge,” which has topped $65 million at the domestic box office. The solid performances have helped reverse momentum at the studio, which saw under-performances by “The Divergent Series: Allegiant” and “Gods of Egypt.”
