In response, The Weinstein Company has now slotted in Antoine Fuqua's boxing drama "Southpaw" for that July 31st release date. Coming off his emaciated look in "Nightcrawler," Jake Gyllenhaal buffed up for "Southpaw" which deals with a middleweight boxing champion who struggles after he experiences a personal tragedy.
The move offers something one normally doesn't get in the middle of summer - a serious, dramatic piece targeting adults. A welcome move though in some quarters.

Paramount Pictures has pushed its spy comedy Grimsby from its originally-slated July 31, 2015 release date to February 26, 2016. The spy comedy starring Sacha Baron Cohen was set to go up against Warner Bros. Point Break remake, Focus Features' Selfless and The Weinstein Company's Southpaw on July 31, 2015. Now it will face Paramount's Ben-Hur remake next winter.
Grimsby centers on a British secret agent (Mark Strong) who is forced to go into hiding in his hometown with his dim-witted soccer hooligan brother (Sacha Baron Cohen). Penélope Cruz also stars as a benevolent corporate leader who is hiding a secret. Annabelle Wallis, Rebel Wilson, David Harewood, Ian McShane, Gabourey Sidibe, Johnny Vegas and Isla Fisher round out the supporting cast.
Mind bending heist movie Now You See Me was a lot of fun, and next year will see director John M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Relatiation) taking over from Louis Leterrier for another adventure with The Four Horsemen for the aptly titled The Second Act. Filming is currently taking place in London, and Fandango have released the first image of the cast, featuring returning cast members Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Dave Franco, Micheal Caine side by side with newcomers Lizzy Caplan (taking over from Isla Fisher who had to step down due to pregnancy) and Daniel Radcliffe, as the son of Michael Caine's villain. Check it out below. Released: June 10th 2016 »
