Apollo 18

This isn't a good sign. The Weinstein Company has announced a handful of new release dates, via Deadline, and among them is a major change for a sci-fi film that was supposed to be out in the next couple of weeks. Apollo 18, the "found footage" thriller about a "canceled" Apollo mission where they supposedly encounter something mysterious. They released the trailer back in February and it didn't look half bad, but some folks claimed they'd already figured out the story. Apollo 18 is now scheduled to hit theaters January 6th, 2012, about eight months after it was originally supposed to arrive (April 22nd). More release dates news below!

Additional films from The Weinstein Co given new 2011 release dates include Our Idiot Brother, formerly known as My Idiot Brother, the Sundance hit indie dramedy starring Paul Rudd, which will hit theaters on August 26th (read Ethan's review from Sundance). I Don't Know How She Does It, a comedy starring Sarah Jessica Parker, is scheduled for September 16th. And finally, the sequel everyone has been waiting for - Piranha 3DD! Weinstein Co has schedule that film for release on November 23rd this year, though we still don't know the full cast yet or many other details. For the full 2011 release schedule, click right here.

Crap. Wondering if it's limited marketing budget or they're inserting a ventilator? Too bad.

M*A*S*H, Blazing Saddles and more recently Cloverfield were released in the dumping grounds of January and they turned out just fine.
