Thumbs up New Potter, Holmes, Lantern release dates

Some eye catching updates from Dark Horizons:

Warner Bros. has essentially mapped out their release schedule for their major tentpoles and blockbusters for not only 2010, but 2011 as well. Here's 'Zephyr' with the breakdown:

The Hangover

The Todd Phillips-directed comedy has moved up one week from June 12th 2009 to June 5th.

Sherlock Holmes

The Guy Ritchie-directed redux starring Robert Downey Jr. as the famous detective has moved back from November 13th, where it would have had to have competed against Roland Emmerich's "2012" and Dwayne Johnson-led "The Tooth Fairy", to December 25th 2009.

Did You Hear About The Morgans

The Hugh Grant/Sarah Jessica Parker romantic comedy has moved up one week from December 25th 2009 to December 18th, where it will act as counter-programming to Avatar.

Couple of Dicks

The pun-laced comedy is due to come out January 29th 2010.

Clash of the Titans

The Louis Leterrier-directed remake of the Greek mythology epic will come out March 26th 2010, where it will face Dreamworks Animation's "How To Train Your Dragon".

Law Abiding Citizen

The Overture drama-thriller starring Jamie Foxx and Gerard Butler will also come out March 26th 2010.

Inception

The mysterious sci-fi project from Christopher Nolan has been geared as a major summer tentpole as it will come out July 16th 2010. However, it will have to face Marvel Studios' "Thor". The film that ends up moving depends on which film is able to go on schedule production-wise. Whichever film moves will likely move a month up to June, which is still vacated in regards to an action tentpole.

Jonah Hex

The western adaptation starring Josh Brolin and John Malkovich will come out August 6th 2010.

Suckerpunch

The upcoming project from Zack Snyder will come out earlier than expected, October 8th 2010, rather than an anticipated Spring 2011 date.

The Factory

The John Cusack-led thriller will come out October 22nd 2010.

Green Lantern

The DC Comics adaptation, now officially being directed by "Casino Royale" director Martin Campbell, will come out December 17th 2010.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part II

The final film of the Harry Potter franchise will come out July 15th 2011, eight months after "Deathly Hallows, Part I" and four months before the tenth anniversary of The Sorcerer's Stone, against Marvel Studios' "The Avengers". Though it will likely be awhile before either one of these films budge, it is likely that "The Avengers" may just move up two weeks to July 1st to claim the Fourth of July weekend.

The scheduling now gives May 2011 the breathing room to contain both "The First Avenger: Captain America" and "Spider-Man IV", which will likely come out Memorial Day Weekend on May 27th. However, it remains to be seen if Chris Nolan's third "Batman" film will come out in Summer 2011; and if so, where it could come out. It would likely have to settle for a June 2011 release unless it decided to have a holiday release.

Looks like there's some good counter-programming here

So it may come down to which movies have better times to determine which movies I see 1st

If it gets delayed one more time I think ardent HP fans will start calling for people's heads at the end of a wand stick

Eh, I could care less about Harry Potter. David Yates' direction on Film 5 just killed my interest in his second outing.

Still have no idea what Inception's about, but I know I must see it.

And Sherlock Holmes got pushed back? Geez, I have to wait even longer for Guy Ritchie-awesomeness? Grr...
 
Superman Returns was a great film. DO NOT REBOOT!

Some good movie news here...I'm excited about Green Lantern moving forward and I have my fingers crossed that Jonah Hex turns out half as great as the current comic.

I'm not sure the world needs yet another Hugh Grant romantic comedy, but I guess these films have their market. The fans of cheesy romantic comedies are probably saying the world doesn't need more superhero films! lol

Sherlock Holmes will do well because Downey Jr is having a career high right now. Plus, it looks to do away with all the stuffy trappings of Sherlock Holmes past and make him more of a rogue.

I don't know how the Clash of the Titans remake will go over. The original is such a camp classic. Hopefully the new one will be fun like the original. Plus, that robot owl better be there or I'll refuse to see it!

I've never heard of Suckerpunch, the Factory or Inception but they sound interesting and have talented names attached.

The best is when it says Batman will have "to settle..." After all the money TDK made Batman doesn't have to settle. It can pick any date and own it no matter what film is playing. Half the world is pumped to see the follow-up and the other half of the world will get dragged along.
