Alvin 3D, “Buried,” “Three Days” Set Dates

A couple of important date changes today announced via Box-Office Mojo and press releases.

Alvin and the Chipmunks 3D
20th Century Fox has announced that production has begun on another ‘Alvin’ film which has been scheduled for a December 16th 2011 release. The date puts the project in direct contention with Spielberg’s “The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn” opening a week later on December 23rd.

Lionsgate has announced a September 24th release date for the buried alive drama about Ryan Reynolds trapped in a coffin which premiered at Sundance.

The Next Three Days
The Paul Haggis-directed drama about a man (Russell Crowe) seeking to clear his wife’s name after she’s arrested for murder was originally targeting an early 2011 release, but has now set an official November 19th 2010 release date.
