Mirror Mirror And What To Expect When You're Expecting Shift Release Dates
Mirror, Mirror and What To Expect When You're Expecting seem to have virtually nothing in common beyond an appeal to female audiences, but they both made a similar move today. Deadline reports that What To Expect has shifted its release date by a week, from May 11 to May 18 of this year, while Mirror Mirror has also pushed back its release, from March 16 to March 30, according to a report from Reuters.
It's a little strange to see two movies shift their releases so close to the actual date, but not totally unheard of. This shift means the March 16 weekend will have nothing but 21 Jump Street to offer-- given that the Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum comedy is getting great early buzz, that shouldn't be too much of a problem. Mirror Mirror, the Tarsem-directed spin on Snow White that looks completely loony and shouldn't be confused with the Kristen Stewart-starring Snow White and the Huntsman, will now be facing off on March 30 against Wrath of the Titans, the Clash of the Titans sequel we can safely assume is aiming for a completely different audience.
Moving ahead to May, What To Expect When You're Expecting-- which recently debuted some truly embarrassing character posters recently-- will now be opening against Battleship, which we can safely assume will not be drawing in the same audience. Its previous weekend had it up against the Johnny Depp/Tim Burton collaboration Dark Shadows, and given the huge audience for their last film together, Alice in Wonderland, that seems like a smart movie.
