Relativity has moved “Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death” forward a month for a Jan. 2 release — the first film to land on the date.

The studio had originally scheduled the “Woman in Black” sequel for Super Bowl weekend on Jan. 30.

Jeremy Irvine and Helen McCrory star in the sequel directed by Tom Harper and written by Jon Croker.

The sequel takes place 40 years after the original film, when a group of children evacuated from London during World War II come to stay and awaken a house’s darkest inhabitants. It will take place in the same house.  Producers are Tobin Armbrust, Simon Oakes, Ben Holden and Richard Jackson.

Relativity acquired U.S. rights from Hammer and eOne to the sequel. The original, starring Daniel Radcliffe, grossed $127 million worldwide.
