Universal Pictures is shifting around pieces on its release calendar.

The studio will unveil “The Huntsman,” the sequel to 2013’s “Snow White and the Huntsman” on April 22, 2016, which will push its reboot of “The Mummy” back by two months.

The Mummy” will now rise from the dead on June 24, 2016. Both films have their dates to themselves, although “The Huntsman” will debut the week after “The Best Man Wedding,” while “The Mummy” will land between “Independence Day 2,” Steven Spielberg’s “The BFG” and “Finding Dory.”

“The Huntsman” will bring back Chris Hemsworth, but will jettison Kristen Stewart. “The Mummy” will be directed by Alex Kurtzman, the director of “People Like Us” and the writer of “Star Trek.”
