UPDATED: Craig Gillespie’s Dumb Money, which is making its TIFF world premiere this weeekend at the fest, is still on course for a three-step platform on Sept 15 -LA & NYC, and Sept. 22, but will now widebreak on Sept. 29 instead of Oct. 6. The comedy also sidesteps Universal’s The Exorcist: The Believer.
PREVIOUS AUG. 16: Dumb Money, Sony’s Craig Gillespie-directed comedy about the GameStop meme investors, isn’t going wide on September 22 anymore. Rather, the Culver City lot has opted to go exclusive with the ensemble movie a week earlier on September 15 in L.A. and NYC, then a limited break on September 22, followed by a moderate release on September 29 and a final wide rollout on October 6.
You’ll remember, Sony moved Kraven the Hunter off of that first weekend of October to Labor Day weekend 2024.
Dumb Money stars Seth Rogen, Paul Dano, Pete Davidson, Vincent D’Onofrio, America Ferrera, Nick Offerman, Anthony Ramos, Sebastian Stan and Shailene Woodley.
The other pic going wide on October 6 is Amazon Pictures’ sci-fi Foe, along with the limited release of Paramount’s Killers of the Flower Moon from Apple Studios.

Dumb Money is making its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month, with the filmmaker and producers in tow to promote the film. The pic is produced by Aaron Ryder, Teddy Schwarzman and Gillespie. EPs are Michael Heimler, John Friedberg, Johnny Holland, Ben Mezrich, Lauren Schuker Blum, Andrew Swett, Rebecca Angelo, Kevin Ulrich, Cameron Winklevoss and Tyler Winklevoss.
Sony Pictures holds rights to the Black Bear Pictures film in the U.S., Latin America, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, South Africa, India and select Asian markets.
To date, there haven’t been any seismic shifts on the theatrical release schedule due to the dual WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, the latter of which prevents actors from promoting their movies. All eyes are on Legendary/Warner Bros.’ Dune: Part Two. If that sci-fi epic moves, than more is expected to crater on the calendar.
