Some release date changes for your asses on this hot, muggy Wednesday (just speaking personally, but this has got to be the most disgusting summer ever on the east coast). A couple of thrillers that we've been keeping an eye on have just announced their new dates, and all I can think about is how much cooler the weather will be when they come out.
First up is SKYLINE, the alien invasion flick from The Strause Bros. Universal Pictures has announced that the film will release on NOVEMBER 12th of this year. It stars Brittany Daniel, Eric Balfour, Crystal Reed, Scottie Thompson, Donald Faison, David Zayas, Neil Hopkins, Kevin O'Donnell, and Phet Mahathongdy.
Here's the synopsis: After a late night party, a group of friends are awoken in the dead of the night by an eerie light beaming through the window. Like moths to a flame, the light source is drawing people outside before they suddenly vanish into the air. They soon discover an otherwordly force is swallowing the entire human population off the face of the earth. Now our band of survivors must fight for their lives as the world unravels around them.
Next is Neil Burger's THE DARK FIELDS, which boasts a cast including Anna Friel, Bradley Cooper, Robert DeNiro and Abbie Cornish. Universal has slapped it with a JANUARY 21, 2011 release, up a few months from its previous MARCH 18 date. Check out our previous article about the mystery, which includes six behind-the-scenes videos, right HERE.
THE DARK FIELDS follows a down-and-out writer who gets his hands on a top-secret pharmaceutical drug that makes one smarter. He experiences sudden financial and social success but soon discovers that the drug has lethal and lasting side effects. Before long, mysterious antagonists are pursuing him.
