That’s the same day Scoob and the new Saw movie are scheduled to open in theaters.

Based on A.J. Finn’s bookThe Woman in the Window is described as a twisty, powerful Hitchcockian thriller about an agoraphobic woman who believes she witnessed a crime in a neighboring house. The movie also stars Julianne Moore, Gary Oldman, Brian Tyree Henry, Wyatt Russell, and Anthony Mackie.

Next up, Disney’s Cruella will now open in theaters on May 28, 2021 instead of the previously-announced December 23, 2020. No other film was scheduled for May 28, 2021 yet. I, Tonya director Craig Gillespie is helming Cruella, starring Emma Stone, Emma Thompson, Joel Fry and Paul Walter Hauser.

Disney has also dated Fox’s Empty Man for August 7, 2020, which is the same day as Infinite opens. Based on the graphic novel, the film will be directed by David Prior and stars James Badge Dale as a troubled ex-cop searching for a missing girl who discovers a secretive group.

And Disney is also targeting an October 23, 2020 release date for Everybody’s Talking About Jamie (see photo above), based on the hit stage production. Directed by Jonathan Butterell, the film stars Max Harwood (Jamie) and Academy Award nominee Richard E. Grant (Hugo).

Inspired by the true story of Jamie Campbell, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie follows 16-year-old Jamie New who lives on a council estate in Sheffield. Jamie doesn’t quite fit in. Jamie is terrified about the future. Jamie is going to be a sensation. Supported by his brilliant loving mum and surrounded by his friends, Jamie overcomes prejudice, beats the bullies and steps out of the darkness, into the spotlight. Recent Academy Award nominee Richard E. Grant plays former drag queen and Jamie’s mentor Hugo.
