Sony has pushed back the release of Roland Emmerich’s sci-fi action film 2012 from July 10, 2009 to November 13, 2009.
“We’ve had such success with the James Bond films in November that we wanted a big tentpole film in that slot this year,” Sony distribution president Rory Bruer said Tuesday. “We’ve got so many films in the summer that this is the perfect answer to that.”
Quantum of Solace debuted with $67.5 million last November, en route to a franchise record $168.1 million domestically.
The film will go up against Warner Bros. Sherlock Holmes, which stars Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, andn Fox’s Dwayne Johnson comedy The Tooth Fairy.
