Sony Sets Release Dates for 'The Dark Tower,' 'Bad Boys' Sequels and More

It's a big day for Sony Pictures. The studio has announced release dates for 16 films -- including a new date for the Paul Feig-directed "Ghostbusters," and dates for not one but two now-official "Bad Boys" sequels.

"Ghostbusters" had moved up a week to July 15, 2016 from its previous July 22, 2016 slot. "Bad Boys 3" -- a renewal of the franchise that debuted in 1995 and saw a sequel in 2003 -- is set for Feb. 17, 2017; with a fourth film on tap for July 3, 2019. Video game-based film "Uncharted" has been pushed back a year to June 30, 2017 (it was originally scheduled for June 10, 2016). "The Dark Tower," a long-in-development live-action adaptation of the series of novels by Stephen King, has been slotted for January 13, 2017.

"Passengers," a much buzzed-about original sci-fi concept starring box office powerhouses Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt, is on the way for Dec. 21, 2016. The live-action "Barbie" film, which was recently reported as being rewritten by Diablo Cody, is scheduled for June 2, 2017. The "Jumanji" remake is scheduled for Christmas Day 2016; "Resident Evil 6" -- said to be the last film in the zombie video game-inspired franchise -- is scheduled for Jan. 27, 2017. A fifth "Underworld" is official for Oct. 21, 2016.

These new dates are in addition to previously scheduled films on Sony's docket, including the Spider-Man reboot co-produced by Marvel Studios (set for July 28, 2017) and a Spider-Man animated film (July 20, 2018).
