Insidious Chapter 2 Moves Up One Week, Makes Way For Walk Of Shame

This is set to be a big year for director James Wan. Not only does the filmmaker have The Conjuring due out this summer, set to debut in theaters on July 19th, he also has the anticipated sequel Insidious Chapter 2 due out in the fall. And the good news for fans is that now they'll be able to see the movie one week earlier than originally scheduled.

Film District has announced that the sequel to Wan's 2010 horror hit has been moved up from its original September 20th release date to September 13th. While the film was originally going to contend with both Ron Howard's racing drama Rush and the Hugh Jackman/Jake Gyllenhaal starring action thriller Prisoners, it will now instead face off against Robert Rodriguez's Machete Kills, the dance drama Battle of the Year, and the recently retitled Sylvester Stallone/Arnold Schwarzenegger team up flick Escape Plan (formerly known as The Tomb).

Motivation behind the move may have come from the fact that the studio has now dated the movie Walk of Shame, starring Elizabeth Banks, for the September 20th weekend (according to Box Office Mojo), and doesn't want two of their films competing with one another. In the comedy, written and directed by Steven Brill, Banks plays a reporter who tries to make her way across downtown L.A. after a one-night stand without her phone, car, I.D. or money in order to make it to a very important job interview. The movie also stars James Marsden, Gillian Jacobs, Sarah Wright, Ethan Suplee, Kevin Nealon and Bill Burr.
