World War Z and The Cold Light of Day play the release date shuffle

03.14.2012

We have a few new/altered release dates for you today, and sadly each and every one pushes a movie further down on the release date slate rather than allowing you to see those anticipated movies any sooner.

First up is WORLD WAR Z, originally planned for December 21st, 2012 and now planned for June 21st, 2013.  By the by, that picture up there is a piece of fantastic concept art for the Battle of Yonkers.

Then there's action-thriller THE COLD LIGHT OF DAY, previously set to be seen April 6th, 2012 and instead moved to September 7th, 2012.

Two upcoming flicks have also received their first release dates, with:

- ANNA KARENINA to release November 9th, 2012.

- TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES to release December 25th, 2013.

So are any of these movies so anticipated for you that you have opening day marked off on your calendar? For me it's WORLD WAR Z - I'm just so damn curious about the changes they've made.  And I'll watch Brad Pitt in just about anything.

I'll accept the fact that they pushed back World War Z, but give us a damn trailer real soon!

WWZ was in a pretty heavy December, but I think its new release date is a week after Man of Steel and on the same day as Monsters Inc. 2 so I don't know how much better that is.

This is good. It gives certain movies that would previously perceive a lock on opening day, a run for their money.

Makes sense to push back WWZ. I always thought it was weird that they'd release it Christmas time.

Wow, I haven't heard the phrase "by the by" in like a decade! LOL

Sucks about WWZ...others I don't really care much.

The World War Z release change is frustrating, but perhaps they're doing it to assuage End of Days fears. I know that sounds silly, but by releasing an apocalyptic film AFTER 2012, the psychological factor is just more palatable. At least this is what I am choosing to believe as the reason.

Interesting analytics, and I completely agree with you. Well played on the 2012 concept.
