End of the World Delayed a Few Months

January 21, 2009


Oh man. I hope you haven't made your post-watching-2012 Olive Garden reservations yet, because we're going to have to wait until November to see Roland Emmerich's the-world-is-ending-in-three-years! movie. From Variety:

Sony is pushing back the release of Roland Emmerich's actioner "2012" from July 10 to Nov. 13, the same date the studio used to launch the previous two James Bond pics.

Sony prexy of worldwide distribution Rory Bruer said the studio has a very strong summer slate -- including tentpole "Angels and Demons" (May 15) and Denzel Washington-John Travolta actioner "The Taking of Pelham One Two Three" (June 12) -- and it made sense to move "2012" to November.

Also, Sony has international distribution rights to McG's "Terminator: Salvation," which opens day-and-date on May 22. Warners is releasing domestically.

I guess my concerns about the impending apocalypse will have to remain vague and visually unrealized for an extra four months. I've been assuming locusts would be involved. There will probably be locusts, right?
