Report: Leap! Release Date Moves Up To August 25th

Deadline.com reports:

UPDATED, 4:50 PM: The Weinstein Co.’s animated feature, Leap! is changing dates yet again — this time moving up by five days to August 25. In this end-of-summer slot, the company still has horror film Polaroid for the weekend (which is likely to move now) as well as Tulip Fever (which also has jogged around the release schedule). Tulip Fever, which stars Academy Award winners Alicia Vikander, Judi Dench and Christoph Waltz, is getting a platform release.

 

Along with music from Demi Lovato and Sia, the film also features new music from one of its stars, Carly Rae Jepsen. In addition to her already-released single “Cut to the Feeling,” the film will also features another new song from the “Call Me Maybe” singer titled “Runaways.”

 

“Our test screenings have been phenomenal – it was already great with Elle Fanning and Mel Brooks, but after adding Kate McKinnon and Nat Wolff, the scores went absolutely through the roof,” TWC Co-Chairman Harvey Weinstein said in a statement. “Carly Rae Jepsen’s song, ‘Cut to the Feeling,’ is going to be one of the top five songs of the summer, and we have incredible word-of-mouth, plus a partnership with Nickelodeon on the movie. We’re super excited about this.”
