The release date of Matthew McConaughey’s new movie “Serenity” has been pushed back to 2019.

Yes, I know it’s sad, but it’s true. You know what’s even worse? I had to find this out when I went to try and purchase tickets for today (the original release date), and I couldn’t find anything.

Then, I visited its IMDB page, and the date had been changed to January 25, 2019. What the hell is going on? (RELATED: Matthew McConaughey’s New Movie Looks Like It Could Be His Best Ever [VIDEO])

I have been so pumped for this movie. The plot of the film, according to IMDB, is, “The mysterious past of a fishing boat captain comes back to haunt him, when his ex-wife tracks him down with a desperate plea for help, ensnaring his life in a new reality that may not be all that it seems.”

I can’t find a single news release or anything about the date change. They just changed it and didn’t say anything! That’s probably wise because they know the fans would be out here revolting.

We need this movie with McConaughey like we need air in our lungs. It’s not fair to get all our hopes up and then just snatch it away! This isn’t communist North Korea. This is America. We have rights here.
