One film I was really looking foward to and another I was planning on seeing have both been pushed back to release dates in 2010.
The first was one of my most anticipated films of this fall – Paul Greengrass’s Green Zone. Universal has announced that the film’s release will be delayed until March of 2010. This usually signifies that a film will not meet expectations, but I still wouldn’t rule this film out. Greengrass has yet to disappoint and the smart book on which it is based is still very relevant.
The second is sci-fi period piece The Wolf Man, which was to star Benicio Del Toro. It has also been pushed back into the dead zone – February 12, 2010.
This doesn’t look good for either movie, but we’ll find out when they’re released. Oscar predictions will be updated next week with the corrections.
