Rambo gets date

We've seen the trailers for JOHN RAMBO, which have looked appropriately gory and hardcore, and heard that Lionsgate wanted Stallone to go the extra mile to make it as bad-ass as he needed to. So why pussy out with a release date then? Lionsgate has set JOHN RAMBO to open up on January 25th, the month where bad films go to die. I'm not saying that JOHN RAMBO should open up on July 4th, 2008 (though that would be somewhat appropriate) but maybe a spring date somewhere? January just seems like Lionsgate is trying to just dump this on the public. They didn't even schedule it on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day weekend, which is the only rationale I could see for releasing it in January. Maybe there's some logical explanation for it all but nine times out of ten, when a movie gets released in January, it's a stinker. Let's hope that Stallone gives us a RAMBO film we can all enjoy.

Extra Tidbit: BIG MOMMA'S HOUSE 2 is the 2nd highest grossing January opening weekend ever to give you an idea of what goes on in January.
