Yesterday Retitled, Delayed For MTV Push

After being delayed from a release his past February to late Summer, Paramount Pictures have now confirmed that they have pushed back their found-footage time travel thriller “Welcome to Yesterday” yet again, and that’s not all.

The Platinum Dunes-produced pic, originally titled “Almanac,” is being retitled again to “Project Almanac” this time. It has also scored a new release date nearly a year on from its original – January 30th 2015.

The delay allows Paramount to team with MTV Films to market the film. Teenagers and college students have reportedly been responding very positively to the film in test screenings, which caught MTV’s interest.

The new slot also puts it around the release window where other found footage films like “Cloverfield” and “Chronicle” have achieved critical and commercial success.
