New Date: “INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3” To Be A Summer Jam

Seemingly as a result of the massive success of its predecessors, as well as James Wan’s July haunting THE CONJURING, the upcoming INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3 has gotten a key release date shift.

Box Office Mojo is reporting INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3, to be directed by series co-star, co-creator and Wan’s longtime writing collaborator Leigh Whannell, will now arrive May 29, 2015, as opposed to its previous early April date. This brings the threequel, said to revolve around an entirely new family and hew closer to the feel of the first film, firmly into the trenches of a packed Summer 2015.

Already pretty notorious for its schedule, Summer 2015 is expected to see the releases of THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, TOMORROWLAND, JURASSIC WORLD, THE FANTASTIC FOUR, TERMINATOR, ANT-MAN, ASSASSIN’S CREED and GOOSEBUMPS. And funny enough, April 3rd has now been given over to FAST & FURIOUS 7, directed by INSIDIOUS helmer Wan.

Will INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3 work as spooky counter-programming, à la THE CONJURING and as DELIVER US FROM EVIL hopes to? More importantly, will Whannell craft a film as nightmarish and out-there as CHAPTER 2? Hopefully.

INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3 stars Dermot Mulroney, Stefanie Scott, Lin Shaye, and Whannell and Angus Sampson as returning investigators Specs & Tucker.
