Release Date Changes: March 6th 2009

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

The next comedy from the director of Superbad has moved back one week from March 27th to April 3rd, where it will only have to face one wide release (Fast & Furious) as opposed to three.

The Hurt Locker
The Summit Entertainment war-drama directed by Kathyrn Bigelow (Point Break, K-19: The Widowmaker) and starring Ralph Fiennes and Guy Pearce will come out June 26th 2009.

Final Destination: Death Trip 3D
The New Line 3D horror-sequel has moved back from August 21st 2009 to its original date of August 14th.

The Boat That Rocked
The Universal ensemble comedy starring Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Bill Nighy, Rhys Ifans, Kenneth Branagh, Emma Thompson, and Jack Davenport will release wide on August 28th 2009.

The Informant
The Steven Soderbergh-directed drama-thriller starring a mustache-endowed Matt Damon has been delayed from the crowded September 18th date to October 9th 2009.

Dear John
A military romance directed by Lasse Hallstrom and starring Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried has been set for February 5th 2010.

Untitled Happy Madison Comedy
The ensemble comedy uniting Adam Sandler, Rob Schneider, David Spade, Chris Rock, and Kevin James will come out March 12th 2010; somewhat odd considering the plot involves the characters meeting each other again during the Fourth of July weekend.

A Nightmare on Elm Street Remake
The Platinum Dunes-produced remake of the Wes Craven classic has been scheduled for April 16th 2010, where it will compete against Robert Rodriguez’s Nerveracker and Lionsgate’s animated feature Alpha and Omega.

The Zookeeper
The Kevin James-led comedy from MGM has been scheduled for July 23rd 2010

Straw Dogs
The Screen Gems remake has been delayed from August 13th 2010 to an undetermined date.

Replacing “Straw Dogs” will be this long-in-development anime adaptation from Screen Gems.
