Last week there were a couple 2012 release date shift announcements. Among the films making moves was John Carter of Mars, the first live-action Pixar movie, moving to March 9, 2012, putting it in on the exact same weekend as Ridley Scott's Prometheus, the original project conceived out of the planned Alien prequel. Well, apparently 20th Century Fox wasn't too fond of John Carter's move and have shifted their sci-fi epic's release. According to THR, Prometheus has been moved from March 9, 2012 to June 8, 2012, which, coincidentally enough was the original release date for John Carter of Mars.

When the release date for Ridley Scott's next film was first announced, I must say that I was fairly surprised. From everything we've been hearing about the project, it sounds like a perfect sci-fi summer blockbuster, and the plan was to bury it in the winter/spring nebulous. This is definitely a proper move and now the film is exactly where it belongs.
