The Weinstein Co. is moving one of its would-be Oscar hopefuls, Bible epic “Mary Magdalene” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara, out of the expensive awards season to focus on a less competitive spring release on March 30 timed to the Easter holiday.
TWC has always been willing to make opportunistic changes, but taking Garth Davis’ follow-up to “Lion” out of the fall is a dramatic. It follows the company’s serial pushback of Alicia Vikander vehicle “Tulip Fever,” including many canceled press screenings, as well as a March 9, 2018 release slot for “The Untouchables” remake “The Upside,” starring Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart.
