Some movies are unfortunately shrouded with problems, and it looks like Zack Snyder’s latest project is one of them. There were already several casting issues that had to be worked out for the all girl led Sucker Punch, and now it’s release date has been moved. I wonder if another movie he did this year has anything to do with this? Synder’s not the only one feeling the burn, director Martin Campbell’s Green Lantern comic book adaptation is also being shuffled. The film’s Christmas 2010 release date is no longer set in stone, and has been pushed back to 2011.
Check out the new dates after the jump.
Both Sucker Punch and Green Lantern are being distributed by Warner Brothers and they’ve recently announced new release dates for each of them. According to /Film, Sucker Punch was originally set to hit theaters on October 8, 2010. Now, we can expect it to bow on March 25, 2011. This will be the third film that Snyder has directed with the studio that will debut in March. The previous two were 300 and Watchmen.
As for Green Lantern, I’m actually happy they decided to push it back. It’s December 17, 2010 date has been moved to June 17th 2011. In my opinion it makes so much more sense for it to premiere in the summer rather than the winter holiday season. Plus, it will give Warner and DC something to compete with since so many huge Marvel properties will be dropping that year, including Spiderman 4.
What do you think of the latest schedule changes? Do you think they’re a good sign or a bad idea?
