Universal plays the release date shuffle again with 47 Ronin, Kick Ass 2, Jurassic Park 3D and more

Get ready for some release date shifts, Schmoes!  Time to ammend your movie calendar as Universal has shuffled it's deck of movie releases once again.  The biggest change is another move for the Keanu Reeves actioner 47 RONIN, which is packing up it's shit from February 8, 2013 and moving in to December 25, 2013.  No big deal, right?  The delay is being attributed to the Olympics being in London, where reshoots and VFX work are being done on the film.  Riiiiight. I'm definitely going to have to see a trailer before I call the ball on that one...

Other date shifts/announcements are as follows:

IDENTITY THIEF starring Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy moves from May 10, 2013 to February 8, 2013 (coincidentally, 47 RONIN's original release date)

JURASSIC PARK 3D moves from July 19, 2013 to April 5, 2013

ABOUT TIME starring Rachel McAdams and Bill Nighy is set for May 10, 2013

KICK ASS 2 starring Aaron Johnson and Chloe Grace Moretz is set for June 28, 2013

R.I.P.D. starring Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds moves from June 28, 2013 to July 19, 2013

2 GUNS starring Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington is booked for August 16, 2013

Save the dates, folks, but don't be surprised if they shift again.  You know the drill.

Extra Tidbit: Which one of the above mentioned titles are most looking forward to? I'm most looking forward to seeing some footage from 47 Ronin to make a final judgment, but I think Kick Ass 2 sits at the top of the heap for me.
