Open Road has given an awards-season launch date to the Michael Keaton journalism drama “Spotlight” with a Nov. 6 opening.

“Spotlight” will expand on Nov. 13 and go wide on Nov. 20. Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber and Stanley Tucci also star in the story of the Boston Globe’s Spotlight investigation team, which reported the Boston Archdiocese’s cover-up of sexual abuse within the Catholic church.

“Spotlight” is directed by Tom McCarthy.

Open Road also delayed police thriller “Triple Nine” from Sept. 11 to March 4, 2016. The movie stars Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Winslet, Aaron Paul, Teresa Palmer, Gal Gadot, Norman Reedus, Woody Harrelson, Anthony Mackie, Brian d’Arcy James and Clifton Collins, Jr.

John Hillcoat directed the story of a crew of dirty cops being blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute a virtually impossible heist by inventing a 999, police code for “officer down.”
