/Film has reported several release date shifts from Universal, the most notable of which is certainly the continuing delay of George Nolfi‘s The Adjustment Bureau. The film’s trailer, which debuted online in mid-May, impressed me quite a bit, so the fact that the release date is now March 4th, 2011 (previously scheduled as September 17th, 2010) will no doubt bring negative buzz to the surface. The report identifies a series of steady rumors which are all saying the same thing: The movie just isn’t that good. Considering the Philip K. Dick source material, as well as the mutual appeal of lead performers Matt Damon and Emily Blunt, this is rather surprising to me. Did anyone else see this coming?
The other films mentioned in the report include Greg Mottola‘s science-fiction-comedy Paul, starring Seth Rogen, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Jason Bateman, and Sigourney Weaver. There were some lofty hopes for a late 2010 release, but an official date has now been set for March 18th, 2011. I am curious to see how this film shapes out, as it is Mottola‘s follow-up to Adventureland, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite romantic tales in recent years.
The last group of films with release date changes include the following:
- Devil (previously titled The Night Chronicles: Devil): September 17th, 2010
- The Dark Fields: January 21st, 2011
- Skyline: November 12th, 2010
- Kids in America: December 3rd, 2010
- Sanctum: February 4th, 2011
Which of these films are you anticipating the most?
