THE LOSERS lose April


"With Warner Bros. Pictures moving Clash of the Titans back a week to April 2nd so that the film can be released in 3D, the studio has now decided to move Sylvain White's comic book adaptation The Losers away from its previous April 9th date as well. The film will now be released on June 4th.

The move is interesting for several reasons. It now leaves Fox's comedy Date Night as the only wide release on April 9. Also, moving The Losers to June 4th puts the movie in theaters just one week before Fox's The A-Team, the movie to which The Losers has been compared to the most.

The other wide releases scheduled for June 4 right now are Get Him to the Greek, Killers and Marmaduke."

Sounds like one Owen Wilson-sounding dog is about to be put down. Put down hard! I didn't even remember that the Judd Apatow-produced, spirited sequel to Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek was coming out the same day. Also a movie with Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl called Killers comes out that day as well (think diet-Knight & Day)



"Last week, Warner Bros. Pictures moved director Sylvain White's The Losers from April 9 to June 4 in order to get it away from Clash of the Titans' April 2 release and to fix some things from a recent test screening.

It sounds like the studio will be able to do this much quicker as they've now decided on an April 23 release date for the action-thriller, starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Zoe Saldana, Chris Evans, Idris Elba, Columbus Short, Holt McCallany, Oscar Jaenada, Jason Patric and Peter Macdissi.

The other wide releases scheduled for April 23 are Universal's MacGruber and 20th Century Fox's Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps."

Well, this'll be a interesting series of events. Marmaduke is saved (for now. I saw that Get Me to the Greek trailer - which I WILL NOT post on this blog - and it looked interesting enough for fans of both Forgetting Sarah Marshall and The Hangover). But what about this three-way race between a "Saturday Night Live" anti-hero and '80s-turned-'90s villain-turned-hero?
