Universal Pulls Joe Kosinski's Sci-Fi 'Oblivion' to April 2013 from July
Briefly: Interesting date change to report on, via Deadline. Universal Pictures has rescheduled the original release date for Joseph Kosinski's (Tron Legacy) new sci-fi movie, titled Oblivion or Horizons, that's set to star Tom Cruise, Olga Kurylenko and Morgan Freeman, from July to April 26th, 2013. While next summer was already starting to look crowded, I was nervous about how big of an impact this sci-fi, supposedly set on another barren planet, would have in July, opening near that coveted "Batman" weekend. But now they've backed off setting it to open as one of the early-summer starters, the weekend just before May. Interesting choice. I'm very excited to see what Kosinski's second epic sci-fi outing looks like, bring it.
