Release Changes: October 4th 2007

‘Zephyr’ is back with another round of release date changes:

Cassandra’s Dream, the Woody Allen drama starring Colin Farrel and Ewan McGregor, will come out a month later on December 28th, 2007. It will still go wide on January 4th.

Case 39, the Paramount thriller starring Renee Zellweger and Ian McShane, has been delayed again from February 22nd 2008 to August 22nd 2008. This is more redistributing than film issues; the studio already had Strange Wilderness and The Spiderwick Chronicles in February.

The Fox And The Child has been delayed from February 29th 2008 to Fall 2008.

The Women will at least come out Fall 2008.

A Christmas Carol, the next performance-capture project from Robert Zemeckis and starring Jim Carrey, will come out November 6th 2009 against The Fantastic Mr. Fox. Despite the almost poetic possibility of coming out Christmas Day, which falls on a Friday in 2009, it would’ve conflicted with Disney’s other holiday release The Princess and The Frog.

The Killing of John Lennon, the controversial dramatization of Mark Chapman’s hours before killing John Lennon, will come out January 11th, 2008.

Nim’s Island, the next adventure from the 20th Century Fox/Walden Media pact, has moved up from April 25th 2008 to April 4th. However, it’ll have to face five other wide-releases.

The Accidental Husband has been delayed a month from February 8th to March 7th, where it will face less competition in the romantic-comedy field.

Blindness, a drama-thriller from Fernando Meirelles (City of God, The Constant Gardener) and starring Mark Ruffalo, Julianne Moore, and Gael Garcia Bernal, will come out August 8th, 2008.

An Untitled Ice Cube Family Comedy from MGM will come out July 25th, 2008. It’s possible that it could be the remake of Welcome Back Kotter.

Trailer Trash, the Eli Roth-led ensemble of pseudo-trailers by way of MGM, will come out August 22nd 2008.

Scanners, the MGM remake of the 1981 Cronenberg thriller, will come out October 17th, 2008.
