XXX shifts date to 8/9

05.13.2002

What was shaping up to be one of the premiere battles of the summer - M. Night Shyamalan's SIGNS vs. Vin Diesel's XXX - has dissolved as one player has balked.   Both films were set to open on August 2 and would likely share a similar audience.   Neither seemed willing to budge until Revolution Studios and Sony Pictures (the folks behind XXX) eventually backed off and pushed the film back a week until August 9th.   The move was likely in response to the extremely positive early buzz SIGNS has received while XXX hasn't heated up yet.  Sony has a lot at stake in XXX, including a sequel, and doesn't want one of their high-profile summer films to suffer in it's debut week.  A smart move by Sony and Revolution that will wind up benefiting both films.
