DreamWorks Sets New 2011 Dates


DreamWorks Pictures has set new release dates for its 2011 slate.

On August 12, the studio will release The Help, the Tate Taylor drama starring Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Bryce Dallas Howard, Chris Lowell, Octavia Spencer, Jessica Chastain, Allison Janney and David Oyelowo. The other film scheduled for that date is the Ruben Fleischer comedy 30 Minutes or Less.

A week later, on August 19, DreamWorks will release Fright Night 3D, the Craig Gillespie-directed remake starring Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Imogen Poots, Toni Collette, David Tennant and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. It will be facing Robert Rodriguez’s Spy Kids: All the Time in the World.

The Shawn Levy-directed Real Steel, starring Hugh Jackman, Evangeline Lilly and Dakota Goyo, has been moved up from November 18 to October 7, which currently also has the David Wain comedy Wanderlust and Gavin O’Connor drama Warrior.

DreamWorks has also moved back Steven Spielberg’s War Horse from August 10 to December 28, which is just a few days after Spielberg’s own The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn, hitting theaters on December 23.
