Hot on the heels of the news that 20th Century Fox has broken the global box office record, earning more than $5.5 billion in 2014 (eclipsing the previous industry record set in 2011 by more than $350 million), the studio has announced release dates for a number of their most anticipated movies. First up, the long-rumored ‘Gambit’ X-Men movie – starring Channing Tatum – has been penciled in for an October 7th, 2016 release date. Although unconfirmed, I expect the Ragin’ Cajun will be teased in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse,’ which opens on May 27th, 2016.

Additionally, the third “Planet of the Apes” movie, the sequel to last summer’s major blockbuster ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,’ has been  moved from summer 2016 to July 14th, 2017, while ‘The Fantastic Four 2,’ the sequel to this summer’s reboot of the Marvel superhero team, was moved from that date up to June 2nd, 2017. ‘The Fantastic Four’ opens on August 7th, 2015.
