Papillon,” which the studio acquired at the Toronto International Film Festival, hits theaters on Aug. 24. The film follows Charlie Hunnam as a prisoner escaping with the help of a convicted counterfeiter, played by Rami Malek.

Starring Rosamund Pike and Dean Norris as CIA operatives, “Beirut” centers on a former U.S. diplomat, played by Jon Hamm, who must negotiate for the life of a friend he left behind in the midst of a civil war. It has been moved up to an April 11 national release.

The studio also dated “What They Had,” with Hilary Swank as a woman returning home to take care of her ailing mother (Blythe Danner) with her brother (Michael Shannon) for an Oct. 12 limited release.
