Ron Howard's 'In the Heart of the Sea' Pushed Back to December
If you were excited about seeing Ron Howard's next film, the nautical thriller In the Heart of the Sea, you'll have to wait a bit longer. In fact, you'll have to wait about nine months as THR reports Warner Bros. has pushed back the Chris Hemsworth film to an awards season release on December 11th. The film always felt like the kind of release we would see in awards season, so it's not entirely surprising, but it's a risky move since it opens just one week before Star Wars: The Force Awakens tears into theaters. But if you're still looking for a movie to see on the old release date, the studio has bumped up another release.
The Liam Neeson action thriller Run All Night will now debut in theaters on March 13th this spring in place of In the Heart of the Sea. We just saw the first trailer for the film last week when Taken 3 hit theaters, so we'll have just two months between Liam Neeson films. The film is directed by Unknown and Non-Stop director Jaume Collet-Serra and it looks exactly as you would expect a generic action thriller to look. It certainly seems clear that Neeson is on the tail-end of this action portion of his career. As for In the Heart of the Sea, we'll see if the move does it any good in a little less than a year from now.
Well that's surprising. Oh well

That's a pity.

Ethan, could this possibly have anything to do with the mediocre reviews Blackhat is getting? I'm not sure if that would have any bearing on a studio's decision to push a movie back...or is it likely just because they want In the Heart of the Sea to get some love come awards season next year?
