Tintin, “War Horse,” “Mission” Change Dates

The Christmas film schedule has undergone a bit of a minor shake-up today with Paramount and Dreamworks altering their release plans for three films opening late December according to the trades.

First up Steven Spielberg’s double hit of “The Adventures of Tintin” and “War Horse” have both moved up several days. ‘Tintin’ will now open Wednesday December 21st, two days earlier than originally planned.

Four days later comes “War Horse” which has moved up from December 28th to a Christmas Day Sunday release.

Finally, Paramount has changed plans for its release of “Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol”. The studio will release the film in IMAX and 250 select theaters on Friday December 16th before a wide release on Wednesday December 21st.
