Channing Tatum’s X-Men spinoff film Gambit finally get’s a release date opening on October 7th, 2016. I liked the casting of Tatum as Remy Lebeau (Gambit), and think he’s a major step up from the mediocre actor that is Taylor Kitsch. For more read the article below that originates from Variety.com.

Twentieth Century Fox has set Channing Tatum’s X-Men spinoff “Gambit” for Oct. 7, 2016.
The Gambit character, who debuted in 1990, is an expert card-thrower and has the power to manipulate kinetic energy.
“Gambit,” written by Joshua Zetumern, will be Fox’s eighth X-Men movie. It will open less than five months after “X-Men: Apocalypse” debuts on May 27, 2016.
Fox also announced Monday that it had set or shifted dates for six other films — most notably, moving its next “Planet of the Apes” movie back a year to July 14, 2017.
The studio had originally planned to open its ninth “Planet of the Apes” on July 29, 2016. Instead, Fox has taken the “Fantastic Four” sequel off July 14, 2017, and moved it forward six weeks to June 2, 2017.
Fox successfully rebooted the “Apes” franchise in 2011 with “Rise of the Planet of Apes,” which grossed $482 million worldwide. This year’s “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” was even more successful with over $700 million.
Fox’s reboot of “Fantastic Four,” directed by Josh Trank and starring Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell, will open on Aug. 7.
Joshua Zetumer wrote the screenplay. It will face off against Warner Bros.’ “Live by Night” and Universal’s “Monster High.”
“Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates,” a comedy to be directed by Jake Szymanski, will hit theaters on July 29, 2016. A cast has yet to be announced for the film, which was written by Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien and centers on two brothers who post an online ad for wedding dates. The film currently has the date to itself.
The studio dated two films for next year’s holiday season — vidgame adaptation “Assassin’s Creed,” starring Michael Fassbender with Justin Kurzel directing, has been dated for Dec. 21, 2016; and P.T. Barnum biopic “The Greatest Showman on Earth,” starring Hugh Jackman, will open Dec. 25, 2016.
Romance movie “The Mountain Between Us,” starring Charlie Hunnam and Rosamund Pike, has been set for Feb. 10, 2017 — four days before Valentines Day.
