It appears as though the April 16th release date for The Back-Up Plan has been pushed back a week to April 23.
Several other film companies are also pushing their early to mid April release dates to late April too. Why? The 800 pound gorilla that is Clash of the Titans moved their date back to accommodate 3D rendering. I think they are making a wise decision because Clash is destined to be a hit. Not only does it have some serious talent like Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes playing Gods it has Hollywood’s new golden boy, Aussie Sam Worthington of Terminator and Avatar fame. Heck, I can’t wait to see it myself. It has blockbuster written all over it, so I can totally see why other film companies don’t want to take on the Titans and see their own numbers plummet due to the competition. I think a week is a small sacrifice if it means better numbers for The Back-Up Plan.
What do you think?
