After a few release date shifts earlier today, a few more have come in from Lionsgate-Summit Entertainment. First up, the studio have lifted Stuart Beattie‘s Aaron Eckhart-led horror/thriller I, Frankenstein from its February release date to September 9th, 2013, where it will go up against Battle of the Year and the 3D re-release of The Little Mermaid. Also starring Socratis Otto, Yvonne Strahovski and Miranda Otto, the drama based on Kevin Grevioux‘s (Underworld) graphic novels follows a modern day tale of Frankenstein’s creature Adam who embarks on a centuries old war.
Taking its slot is Ric Roman Waugh‘s actioner Snitch, which stars Dwayne Johnson, Susan Sarandon, Benjamin Bratt and Barry Pepper. The film will now open on February 22nd, 2013, a week before Neill Blomkamp‘s Elysium, and follows “father whose teenage son is wrongly accused of a drug distribution crime and is looking at a mandatory minimum prison sentence of 10 years. Desperate and determined to rescue his son at all costs, he makes a deal with the U.S. Attorney to work as an undercover informant and infiltrate a drug cartel on a dangerous mission- risking everything, including his family and his own life.”
