2 GUNS, KICK-ASS 2 And THE HOBBIT: THERE AND BACK AGAIN Get New Release Dates
Universal have made some notable changes to their 2013 comic book movie slate as R.I.P.D. gets a 3D conversion, 2 Guns is moved ahead by a couple of weeks and Kick-Ass 2 is pushed back by nearly two months. The third and final The Hobbit movie has also been moved to December 2014!
Deadline reports that Universal are now planning on releasing R.I.P.D. in 3D. The adaptation of the Dark Horse comic book series stars Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges, and keeps its release date of July 19th, 2013. Denzel Washington will now be seen in 2 Guns two weeks early as it opens on August 2nd, 2013 instead of the previously slated August 16th, 2013. Unfortunately, Jeff Wadlow's big screen take on Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.'s Kick-Ass 2 has been delayed from June 28th, 2013 to August 16th, 2013. That takes it a good distance away from Warner Bros.' Man of Steel. Talking of the studio, Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: There and Back Again will now be released on December 17th, 2014. It had previously been slotted in for a July 18th, 2014 debut, but that would have meant it clashed with X-Men: Days of Future Past. Sound off with your thoughts below!
