The Release Dates, They Are A-Changin'

The Release Dates, They Are A-Changin'

Who knows why the studios do what they do? It took me a while to forgive the moving of the U.S. release date for Simon Pegg comedy (directed by David Schwimmer) Run, Fat Boy, Run from October 26, 2007 to March 28, 2008. Then the release for Angelina Jolie-James McAvoy action movie Wanted moved to the summer, and the Tom Cruise-Bryan Singer WWII thriller Valkyrie will be released in October instead of June.

Now there are more releases being pushed back, most notably the one for the heavily promoted 27 Dresses. To check it out,


27 Dresses — Now opening January 18 instead of January 11, the film will compete with Cloverfield and the Katie Holmes-Queen Latifah-Diane Keaton comedy Mad Money. If it had opened as originally scheduled, it would have only really had The Bucket List to contend with, though now this way Dresses will open on a 3-day holiday weekend (Martin Luther King Day). Apparently, the test screenings have gotten such an "overwhelming response" they want to cash in by opening on a 3-day weekend.

Be Kind, Rewind — The Michel Gondry-directed comedy that stars Mos Def and Jack Black will now open February 22 instead of January 25. I'm really stoked to see this one, so I'm bummed to have to wait another month.

Inkheart — Originally scheduled to open March 19, the kids' fantasy movie (based on the books by Cornelia Funke) will now be released on another date, TBA.

Noooo, not Be Kind, Rewind! Although, I admit that I saw this coming (maybe I read about it somewhere or perhaps it's just that this release date seems to always be changing). And Liz R - thank you! I hadn't realized that the Be Kind Rewind site was up! I'll go check it out. Maybe it's just me, but everyone seems to think that 27 Dresses is being hugely/annoyingly promoted and I haven't had that experience at all (perhaps I've just unwittingly dodged it). I don't normally watch Ugly Betty, but I saw the episode in which she talks about going to see it. I didn't know it was a real movie until they played the commercial during one of the breaks. Since then I've seen the commercial maybe once or twice and have heard it mentioned online about twice. I figured it would be a run-of-the-mill, nothing special chick flick, but I really haven't enough of the trailer to have an opinion on it.

I can't wait for 27 Dresses, Katherine is my favorite. And I can relate to the whole being-a-bridesmaid-a-zillion-times thing...although I finally did get married myself!

That's too bad, esspecially about Be Kind Rewind because I am super-excited for that one. As far as 27 dresses goes, I don't think it has to worry about "competing" with Mad Money-that movie looks like the biggest pile.

Huh. It definitely used to link to this site. Guess something got screwed up along the way. Oh well; it's the thought that counts!

Liz R — No, I did NOT know that!!! That is super cool! Thanks so much for letting me know that. :) Although, the place where it says "Buzz Sugar" actually links to a different site altogether, but whatever! That's still awesome. I'm on his side, for sure.

Oh and speaking of Simon Pegg related goodness, Buzz were you aware that Edgar Wright linked to your site when talking about the monstrosity that is the US version of Spaced? Sorry for the insanely long link.

The website for "Be Kind Rewind" is really cool. I especially like the wire holding the mouse pointer up. Very, very, very excited for that movie.
