‘Kraven The Hunter’ Heads To December, ‘Karate Kid’ To Chop Next Summer In Latest Sony Release Date Changes

Sony has pushed their reboot of Karate Kid from Dec. 13 this year to May 30, 2025. This has created a bit of a backward domino effect but won’t rob the year of theatrical releases.

Backfilling Karate Kid‘s spot is Sony/Marvel’s Kraven the Hunter which goes from Aug. 30, the Labor Day weekend frame, to Dec. 13. The Aaron Taylor-Johnson movie will have Imax and PLF screens. Kraven the Hunter will be the only R-rated movie during the holidays. Directed by J.C. Chandor, Kraven will go up against Warner Bros.’ animated movie Lord of the Rings: The War of Rohirrim.

The plus here on Karate Kid‘s move: The movie will now follow the sixth and final season of Cobra Kai, which was delayed due to the strike. The summer date will see 50% K-12 out on its opening day with great family film spacing.

Added to the release calendar is the Blumhouse title They Listen, which will now go over the 4-day Labor Day weekend this year.

Debuting next summer is Legendary/Sony’s animated pic Animal Friends on Aug. 15, 2025 with the voices of Jason Momoa, Ryan Reynolds, Aubrey Plaza and Dan Levy among others.
