Round up: Release dates, weekend & Monday filming  
From Variety:
Warner Bros. has set Zac Efron starrer “We Are Your Friends” for an Aug. 28 release in the U.S.

“We Are Your Friends” is a Working Title film also starring Emily Ratajkowski (“Gone Girl”) and Wes Bentley (“Interstellar”). Max Joseph directs the drama.

Studiocanal financed the film and sold it to Warner Bros. last fall at the American Film Market. Set in the world of electronic music and Hollywood nightlife, “We Are Your Friends” explores the tormented friendship between an aspiring 23-year-old DJ (Efron) and a damaged older DJ (Bentley) who takes him under his wing.


Sam Richardson joined 'Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates' as the finance. (Deadline)

Warner Bros. probably knows more about the movie business than I do, so I will assume that 1) they think August 28 is a workable release date for WAYF, or 2) they are throwing it away on an open weekend. This flick is neither a thriller nor a comedy, so I can't guess how well it might do.

But DG should provide a lift to spirits on dark and wintry February 26. It will certainly lift my spirits.

Then we can look forward to Neighbors II in the summer, maybe.

I wonder which will shoot first, Mike and Dave or Neighbors II. Anyway, it should keep the Zacster occupied for the next several months. 2015, another three-movie filming year, and it wasn't long ago that we didn't think he would have anything to do.

Wedding Dates will definitely go first. It starts filming in a few weeks. Seth is also currently busy directing Preacher.

The date for WAYF is decent. It's a slow weekend but that's a good thing in this case because original r-rated dramas without many stars are a hard sell, it would totally drown against big movies. And as you pointed out the competition could be way worse.
