Jack the Giant Killer Pushed Back to March 2013


Warner Bros. Pictures has made three changes to the studio’s upcoming release calendar.

First up, the studio has decided to move Bryan Singer-directed Jack the Giant Killer back from June 15, 2012 to March 22, 2013. The other films scheduled for the new date are the Paul Greengrass/Tom Hanks biopic Captain Phillips and DreamWorks Animation’s The Croods, featuring the voices of Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds and Emma Stone. Jack the Giant Killer stars Nicholas Hoult, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy, Eleanor Tomlinson and Ewan McGregor.

With “Giant Killer” moving out of the June 15 slot, the studio has moved back Adam Shankman’s Rock of Ages two weeks from June 1 to June 15. The musical adaptation will now face the Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg comedy I Hate You Dad on this new date. It also means that Snow White and the Huntsman gets June 1st to itself.

Finally, Warner Bros. has removed the David Dobkin film Arthur & Lancelot from its schedule for now. The film, which has Joel Kinnaman and Kit Harington attached to star, was supposed to open in theaters on March 15, 2013.
