Other films currently known to have been shifted include Roland Emmerich‘s Independence Day 2 and Matthew Vaughan‘s The Secret Service. Moved from an expected release in 2015, Independence Day 2 will not be showing in cinemas until 1st July the following year, almost exactly 20 years after the release of the original Independence Day film. Meanwhile, The Secret Service has been moved on from late 2014 to 6th March 2015.

In addition to these changes, release dates have also been given for Melissa McCarthy‘s Susan Cooper and Jason Reitman‘s Labor Day, which are expected to appear in cinemas in 2015 on 22nd May and 31st January respectively.
