One day he finds the courage to break free, and finally goes on the adventure of his dreams. On his journey, he teams up with Ruth, a loveable sheep who has lost her flock and Dave, a dove with lofty aspirations. Along with three wisecracking camels and some eccentric stable animals, Bo and his new friends follow the Star and become accidental heroes in the greatest story ever told – the first Christmas.

The Star was actually supposed to be released this weekend, but Sony decided to move the film up a week. For Walden Media, that poses an unusual situation. The decision was made by the Chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Motion Picture Group Tom Rothman, said Walden Media CEO Frank Smith.Smith said he initially had concerns because both “The Star and Wonder are intended for a wide family audience. We have two films coming out the same weekend, it doesn’t seem like the best situation but you have to look at the films separately and apart. I think he was doing the right thing for that film. He didn’t want to lose out on the Thanksgiving weekend.”
Current tracking forecasts have The Star at $10M and Wonder at $9M. Both titles are skewing toward older females, meaning moms. Cross Creek Pictures faced a similar situation back on Sept. 18, 2015 when Warner Bros. went wide with its Johnny Depp mob movie Black Mass aimed and older adults, and Universal gave a 545 theater limited start to Everest in Imax. Everest went wider during Black Mass‘ second frame in 3,006 theaters.
