‘Free State of Jones’ Gets New Release Date


Gary Ross’ Civil War drama The Free State of Jones, starring Matthew McConaughey, will now hit theaters May 13, instead of March 11.

STX Entertainment announced the shift Thursday. In a twinned move, STX dated The Space Between Us for July 29.

In Free State of Jones, McConaughey plays a soldier for the Confederacy during the Civil War who becomes disillusioned with the South’s cause, flees the battlefield and defiantly declares a safe haven in Jones County, Miss., after marrying a former slave.

The shift to May means that Free State of Jones will open in the high-profile summer corridor, one week after Captain America: Civil War debuts. So far, the only other title slotted to roll out May 13 is Edward Snowden biopic Snowden.
