Release Dates Announced For Seven Psychopaths, Gambit And The Words
This past week we've seen multiple release date changes and announcements for movies like Bel Ami, The Cold Light of Day, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and World War Z, but now it's CBS Films' turn to set up their schedule. According to Box Office Mojo, the studio has officially announced release dates for Gambit, Seven Psychopaths and The Words.
First up, Gambit, which is based on a script by Joel and Ethan Coen and directed by Michael Hoffman, will not be arriving in 2012 as originally hoped, but instead will arrive early next year on January 11, 2013. Despite the fact that the movie is still nearly a year away, the choice of date already gives the project still competition, as both Scary Movie 5 and Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters are also set to bow on that Friday. The film, a remake of the 1966 Ronald Neame movie, stars Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz as an art collector and a Texas steer rider, respectively, who work together to con a rich collector.
Next we learn that Seven Psychopaths, the sophomore writing/directing effort from In Bruges filmmaker Martin McDonagh, has been given a November 11, 2012 date. This means that the movie will be going up against the remake of Red Dawn, Disney's Wreck-It Ralph and the Seth Rogen-Barbra Streisand comedy The Guilt Trip. Psychopaths stars Colin Farrell as a screenwriter who gets pulled into a darkly comedic situation when his two friends (Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken) pull him into a dog-napping scam and they are forced to go toe-to-toe with a ruthless gangster (Woody Harrelson). Abbie Cornish, Olga Kurylenko, Gabourey Sidibe, and Tom Waits all have roles as well.
Lastly is The Words, the Bradley Cooper/Zoe Saldana-starring thriller that had its premiere at January's Sundance Film Festival. For that title CBS Films has announced a September 21, 2012 release date. The story follows a writer (Cooper) who discovers a lost manuscript from a famous author and claims that he wrote it. While he finds instant success due to the book, the consequences he must face as a result are dire. The movie will be up against Cogan's Trade, Dredd, Hotel Transylvania and House at the End of The Street.
