Release Updates: Bigelow's SEAL Film for Oct 2012, 'One Shot' in 2013
Now that we're almost through July, studios are starting to fill up the fall season and beyond. Yesterday we reported that G.I. Joe: Retaliation was going to take Star Trek's summer 2012 spot, but we've got more. Deadline says that Sony has scheduled Kathryn Bigelow & Mark Boal's untitled SEAL Team 6-Osama bin Laden hunt project for October 12th, 2012, in a key late fall Oscar spot, as I'm sure they're hoping it'll get awards play. Additionally, Emilio Estevez's The Way will get a limited release on October 7th this fall, and Paramount's Tom Cruise project One Shot will hit on the distant February 8th, 2013. More below!
One other big release date update for this winter - Paramount has pushed Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol (watch the trailer) back a few days to Wednesday, December 21st instead of Friday the 19th, to separate itself from Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and to open that early pre-Christmas mid-week Holiday slot (Sony's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is also scheduled for then). Jason Reitman's new film Young Adult, starring Charlize Theron and Patton Oswalt, is now scheduled for December 9th. And finally, Cannes favorite We Need to Talk About Kevin starring Tilda Swinton will hit limited theaters starting on December 2nd. As always, you can find our full release schedule updated through 2012 online.
