When a major project like Universal's Fifty Shades of Grey shifts its release date, that usually starts a ripple effect with other studios making changes to their slate. Sony Pictures has moved Sex Tape up from July 18, 2014 to the E.L. James adaptation's former release slot on August 1, 2014. The comedy, which stars Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz as a couple trying to locate their missing sex tape, will now go up against the James Brown biopic Get on Up and Marvel's Phase Two sequel Guardians of the Galaxy.
Sony has also moved up Beware the Night from its January 16, 2015 release to July 2, 2014, where it faces the Warner Bros. comedy Tammy, starring Melissa McCarthy and Susan Sarandon. Beware the Night, which stars Eric Bana, Olivia Munn and Joel McHale, follows a New York detective who investigates supernatural cases.
Finally, the studio has moved The Kitchen Sink from October 25, 2014 to January 9, 2015. The thriller follows a teenager who must team up with a zombie and a vampire to prevent an alien invasion.
