As the person in charge of Screen Rant’s 2012 Movie Preview, I can tell you: keeping up with movie release dates is a hard thing to do. Why? Because unless you’re talking big blockbusters like The Avengers or The Dark Knight Rises, studios shuffle movie release dates around constantly, in order to better fit the changing landscape of a cinematic year.
Today we have some release date announcements and shuffles to report, and they include the 3D re-release of Jurassic Park, TRON Legacy director Joseph Kosinski’s original sci-fi project, Oblivion, the Coen Brothers-scripted remake of Gambit, the upcoming thriller The Words and the highly-anticipated new film from In Bruges director Martin McDonagh, Seven Psychopaths.
Below you’ll find the release dates for the aforementioned films:
- The Words has been set for September 21, 2012.
- Seven Psychopaths has been set for November 11, 2012.
- Gambit has been moved from late 2012 to January 11, 2013.
- Oblivion will now be released on April 26, 2013, instead of in July of that year.
- Jurassic Park 3D will be released on July 19, 2013.
The Words premiered at Sundance in January and stars Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana, Olivia Wilde, Dennis Quaid, J.K. Simmons and Jeremy Irons. Check out a synopsis below:
When an aspiring writer claims another man’s long lost work as his own, the price he must pay is more than he could have ever imagined.
Seven Psychopaths stars Woody Harrelson, Colin Farrell, Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell, Abbie Cornish, Olga Kurylenko, Gabourey Sidibe and Tom Waits. The crime/caper/comedy revolves around ‘a screenwriter who gets caught up in his pal’s dog-kidnapping plot.‘ Check out some early images from the film.
Gambit is a remake written by Joel and Etan Coen and directed by Michael Hoffman (Soapdish) about ‘An art curator who enlists the services of a Texas steer roper to con a wealthy collector into buying a phony Monet painting.’ It stars Cameron Diaz, Stanely Tucci, Alan Rickman, Cloris Leachman and Colin Firth.
In the Tom Cruise-starring Oblivion:
A court martial sends a veteran soldier to a distant planet, where he is to destroy the remains of an alien race. The arrival of an unexpected traveler causes him to question what he knows about the planet, his mission, and himself.
And in Jurassic Park 3D you’ll be getting the same great adventure to a theme park where real dinosaurs run amok…in 3D.
