Release Changes: July 29th 2009

‘Zephyr’ here with the latest round of release date updates, particularly from Universal Pictures which has announced its schedule up til the end of Summer 2010. There’s also some Fox stuff:

Law-Abiding Citizen
The Overture Film vigilante thriller starring Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx has been pushed up nearly five months from March 26th 2010 to October 16th 2009 against Where The Wild Things Are, The Road, and The Stepfather.

Pirate Radio
The new title for Focus Features’ “The Boat That Rocked”, the ensemble dramedy has finally been scheduled for November 6th 2009.

The Fourth Kind
A loosely fact-based sci-fi thriller starring Milla Jojovich has been scheduled for November 6th 2009.

The Wolfman
The Joe Johnston-directed monster revival starring Benicio del Toro has been delayed for a very troubling fifth time, this time from November 6th 2009 to February 12th 2010, almost fifteen months after its original date of November 14th 2008. Considering the trailer shown at last year’s Comic Con has yet to appear on the internet was likely a sign.

The Nancy Myers-directed romantic comedy starring Alec Baldwin, Meryl Streep, and Steve Martin remains scheduled for December 25th 2009.

The Green Zone
The Paul Greengrass-directed war thriller starring Matt Damon, Jason Isaacs, Brendan Gleeson, Greg Kinnear, and Amy Ryan has been scheduled for March 12th 2010.

The feature film adaptation of the SNL character played by Will Forte and starring Kristin Wiig, Ryan Phillippe, and Val Kilmer has already been scheduled for April 16th 2010.

Get Him to the Greek
The unofficial sequel to Forgetting Sarah Marshall starring Russell Brand and Jonah Hill has been scheduled for June 11th 2010 against 20th Century Fox’s The A-Team and Columbia’s The Kung Fu Kid.

Repo Men
Previously titled Repossession Mambo, the sci-fi action thriller starring Jude Law and Forest Whitaker will come out sometime during Winter 2010.

Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax
The Dr. Seuss adaptation from Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment will release on March 2nd 2012, giving it four weeks to itself in Digital 3D screens before Dreamworks’ Puss in Boots.

Ramona and Beezus
The Walden Media adaptation has been delayed from March 19th 2010 to August 13th 2010.

Our Family Wedding
The Fox Searchlight comedy starring America Ferrera and Forest Whitaker has been scheduled for March 19th 2010.

Gulliver’s Travels
The 20th Century Fox adaptation starring Jack Black has been delayed from June 4th 2010 to December 24th 2010. It’s peculiar that it would come out on Christmas Eve, a historically dead day at the box office, rather than Christmas Day itself.

The 20th Century Fox adaptation of the comic strip canine has replaced the previous film, due to come out June 4th 2010.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps
The Oliver Stone-directed sequel starring Michael Douglas, Shia LaBeouf, and Josh Brolin has been scheduled for April 23rd 2010.

The James Mangold-directed espionage comedy starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz has been scheduled for July 2nd 2010. This will be Tom Cruise’s fourth feature to come out on the Fourth of July Weekend. This is only a week before Cameron Diaz’s turn in The Green Hornet, not to mention the studio’s own Robert Rodriguez’s Predators.

The Tony Scott-directed train thriller starring Chris Pine and Denzel Washington, which was almost canceled due to contract negotiations a few weeks ago, has been scheduled for November 12th 2010.
