The awards season is sloowwwwwlllly creeping near, and the studios are already rescheduling their movies for prominent spots for Oscars recognition.

-- Joel Edgerton's upcoming movie "Boy Erased," about a gay teen who's being forced into conversion therapy, has been pushed to a November 2 release (from September 28) for better awards season placement. Oscar pushes will be made for star Lucas Hedges (as lead) and Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman (in supporting).
