Originally scheduled for release on April 19, 2013, the upcoming Scary Movie 5 has moved ahead a week and will now open opposite Evil Dead on April 12.

Scary Movie 5, continuing the long-running farcical franchise, is being directed by Malcolm Lee with a script from Lee and David Zucker. In it, snooty, aloof, imperious, and oversexed French dance company director Pierre is putting on a new production. Jody (played by Ashley Tisdale), a Caucasian late-20s mother of two and her late-20s African American friend Kendra (played by Erica Ash) are both vying for the lead in the production. Jody’s extremely controlling former dancer mother is determined that Jody will have the brilliant career that eluded her. The highly skilled mid-30s Diva veteran dancer with the company, Heather Daltry (played by Molly Shannon), gets cut from the production and goes berserk.

Evil Dead, meanwhile, is directed by Fede Alvarez with a script by Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues. A remake of Sam Raimi's 1981 cult-hit horror film, Evil Dead follows five twenty-something friends who become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.

Also opening the same day (although not necessarily vying for the same audience) is Warner Bros.' Jackie Robinson biopic 42 and, in an IMAX-only release, Joseph Kosinski's Oblivion, set to open in conventional theaters the following Friday.
