Mile 22 and The Happytime Murders delayed
STXfilms has announced that two of their upcoming movies, the thriller Mile 22 and comedy The Happytime Murders, have both been delayed. Mile 22 is now set to premiere on August 17 (previously set for August 3), and The Happytime Murders will arrive in theaters a week later from its original date, now on August 24.
Mile 22 is directed by Peter Berg (Patriots Day, Deepwater Horizon, Lone Survivor) and stars Academy Award nominees Mark Wahlberg (Transformers film series, Lone Survivor, Deepwater Horizon) and John Malkovich (Deepwater Horizon, Being John Malkovich), as well as Lauren Cohan (The Walking Dead, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Iko Uwais (The Raid film series, Triple Threat) and Ronda Rousey (Furious 7, The Expendables).
Wahlberg stars as James Silva, an operative of the CIA’s most highly-prized and least-understood unit. Aided by a top-secret tactical command team, Silva must retrieve and transport an asset who holds life-threatening information to Mile 22 for extraction before the enemy closes in.
The Happytime Murders is a filthy comedy set in the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles where puppets and humans coexist. Two clashing detectives with a shared secret, one human (Melissa McCarthy) and one puppet, are forced to work together again to solve the brutal murders of the former cast of a beloved classic puppet television show.
The action comedy starring Melissa McCarthy, Maya Rudolph, Joel McHale, and Elizabeth Banks was directed by Brian Henson from a screenplay by Todd Berger. Henson, Jeff Hayes, McCarthy, and Ben Falcone are the producers.
