Streep film moved to Christmas

Meryl Streep's new movie will now open at Christmas

Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts' upcoming film has had its release date shifted to Christmas Day.

August: Osage County was due to hit cinemas in early November but has now been put back to the festive period, said The Wrap.

It stars Meryl as a pill-popping mother to a bitter daughter played by Julia, with Benedict Cumberbatch and Ewan McGregor also appearing in the film, which was produced by George Clooney.

August: Osage County is based on a Tracy Letts play that opened on Broadway in 2007 and scooped a cluster of awards including the Pulitzer Prize.

Christmas is starting to look crowded at the cinema as Jack Ryan, starring Chris Pine and Keira Knightley, Keanu Reeves' action thriller 47 Ronin, and comedy The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty are all out at the same time.

Grace Of Monaco, a biopic starring Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly, has also had its release date changed by The Weinstein Co and is being brought forward from December to November 27.
