For those of you eagerly awaiting the release of Pitch Perfect 3, it looks like you will be waiting a bit longer!
Universal studios initially planned to release the third Pitch Perfect movie (starring Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson) on July 21, 2017 when they announced the film last summer, but then pushed it back to August 4th at the end of September. Now, Deadline has reported that the movie has been pushed back even farther, with its new release date set to December 22 2017.
The change was reportedly made to maximize the success of the movie. If it were released during the summer, the movie would have to compete with summer blockbusters like Christopher Nolan‘s Dunkirk and Luc Besson‘s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.
By opening during Christmas time, Pitch Perfect 3 will instead provide another viewing option for those not heading out to see Star Wars: Episode VIII. The Croods 2, The Six Billion Dollar Man, and The Greatest Showman on Earth will also be opening during the 2017 Christmas period.
Will you be seeing PP3 next winter?
