transformersrevengeofthefallen-031709Last night Paramount/DreamWorks announced a July 1, 2011 release date for Transformers 3.  But apparently they forgot to inform director Michael Bay who isn’t so pleased with the early release.  Bay wrote the following post on his official message boards:

Wait a minute! I said I was taking off a year from Transformers. Paramount made a mistake in dating Transformers 3 – they asked me on the phone – I said yes to July 4 – but for 2012 – whoops! Not 2011!!! That would mean I would have to start prep in September. No way. My brain needs a break from fighting robots.

Paramount/DreamWorks say they wanted to get ahead of the competition in announcing an early release date, but honestly, what’s the deal with setting dates so early?

In other news, Paramount, on behalf of Marvel, is moving up the release of Thor from June 16, 2011 to May 20, 2011. (Paramount is the distributor of the film, while Marvel Entertainment is producing and financing.)

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen hits theaters on June 24, 2009.

Synopsis
Russell Crowe plays Robin of Loxley in an origin story of Robin Hood that hews close to historical facts of the period. Abandoned as a child, he finds community with the common people of Nottingham. Robin’s abandonment and trust issues hamper his ability to fall in love. He meets his match in Marian (Blanchett), a strong, independent woman.

theprincessandthefrog-031109Disney has decided to move up the release of The Princess and the Frog from its original Christmas Day, 2009 release date to December 11, 2009.  The animated musical will open in limited release exclusively in New York and Los Angeles 16 days earlier on November 25th.

Disney made the decision, so they could take the film out of competition with 20th Century Fox’s family friendly Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel.  In its new date, it’ll face off against Peter Jackson’s The Lovely Bones from DreamWorks and Paramount.

elmstreetfreddykrueger-030509Warner Bros. and New Line have set an April 16, 2010 release date for the upcoming horror remake A Nightmare on Elm Street.

The project is based on a script by Wesley Strick and will be directed by music-video turned film director Samuel Bayer. At the moment, competition isn’t too crowded for that date, with just two other wide releases set: Weinstein’s Nerveracker and Lionsgate’s animated film Alpha and Omega.

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.

The setting is sixth century Persia. A nefarious nobleman covets the Sands of Time, a legendary gift from the gods that allows its possessor to turn back time. Whoever owns the Sands of Time has the power to rule the world, and this villainous lord would use that power to enslave all of humanity. The only person capable of defeating this tyrant and saving the world is Dastan (Gyllenhaal), a youthful prince. Now, with plucky princess Tamina (Gemma Arterton) by his side, Dastan will attempt to prevent the Sands of Time from falling into the wrong hands. Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) directs a script penned by Carlo Bernard, Doug Miro, Jordan Mechner, and Boaz Yakin.

add a comment

Lionsgate has pushed back the release of the religion documentary Religulous.  The film was originally set to release on July 2nd, but will now hit theaters on October 3rd. Religulous is directed by Larry Charles (Borat) and stars comedian/TV show host Bill Maher (Real Time with Bill Maher).  Maher gave the following explanation in his reasoning behind doing the film: “I wanted to make a documentary, and I wanted it to be funny. In fact, since there is nothing more ridiculous than the ancient mythological stories that live on as today’s religions, this movie would try to be a real knee-slapper. Unless, of course, you’re religious; then you might not like it.”
