Although the film itself is, unsurprisingly, a complete mystery, Warner Bros. Pictures has set Christopher Nolan’s next movie for release on Friday, July 21, 2017. The film will arrive just one week after 20th Century Fox’s War of the Planet of the Apes and just one week before Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures’ new Marvel Cinematic Universe Spider-Man film, starring Tom Holland.
Christopher Nolan has been working with Warner Bros. since 2002’s Insomnia. He also helmed the studio’s Dark Knight trilogy (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises) as well as three original features: The Prestige, Inception and, most recently, Interstellar (a co-production with Paramount Pictures).
Post-Interstellar, Christopher Nolan released the documentary short Quay, which is currently touring the US as part of a Quay Brothers retrospective.
Also scheduled for the July 21, 2017 date are Universal Pictures’ sequel Pitch Perfect 3 and Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, starring Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne and Clive Owen.
Set for release in July of 2017 as well is directors’ Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
Directed by Dawn of the Planet of the Apes helmer Matt Reeves, War of the Planet of the Apes follows on July 14 with Spider-Man, helmed by Cop Car‘s Jon Watts, arriving July 28.
