The Weinstein Company has pushed back the kids film “Paddington” from a Christmas Day to a January 16th 2015 release. They’ve also delayed the animated film “Underdogs” by three months so it will now open on April 10th 2015.
The “Hot Tub Time Machine” sequel was slated to open at Christmas, but now it has been pushed back by two months and will open on February 20th 2015. That shift has bumped “Scouts vs. Zombies” which has been delayed eight months from February 20th 2015 to October 30th 2015.
