Steven Spielberg's Robopocalypse Shifted Back To 2014
But do you know who's probably thrilled by this news? Universal, who now gets to release Despicable Me 2 with little opposition. That is, if no other studio decides to move forward or back to claim a piece of the valuable July 4 weekend. Are you listening, Warner? Wouldn’t Pacific Rim make for an excellent July 4 release?
