First up, the studio has moved up one of their biggest new projects - Ang Lee's take on Yann Martel's previously-billed-as-unfilmable novel "Life of Pi." The film will now release a full month ahead of time, moving from a crowded Christmastime release (on December 21) to a clever Thanksgiving window (November 21). The film will now go up against the long-delayed "Red Dawn" remake, the animated "Rise of the Guardians," and David O. Russell's "The Silver Linings Playbook." It should prove to be family-friendly counter-programming for families without little kids to keep busy. Its previous release date would have put it in competition with stuff like "One Shot," "This Is 40," Kathryn Bigelow's untitled next film, "Django Unchained," "The Great Gatsby," and "The Guilt Trip," all opening in a crowded holiday field.
The 3D film has surely benefited from immensely positive buzz over the last few months, much of kicked off by the screening of some reportedly incredibly impressive material at Cinema Con.
