Paramount Moves Release Dates for Eddie Murphy’s A THOUSAND WORDS and Horror Thriller THE DEVIL INSIDE

by     Posted 2 years, 350 days ago


Paramount has changed up the release dates on a couple of its upcoming films: the Eddie Murphy dramedy A Thousand Words and the Italian-set, horror/thriller The Devil Inside. Here are the details of the changes:

  • A Thousand Words moves from January 13th to March 23rd, 2012. The change now pits the film against Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games
  • The Devil Inside moves up from February 24th to January 6th, 2012. The film will now go head-to-head with the Sam Raimi-produced horror/thriller The Possession starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Kyra Sedgwick

News of the release date changes come courtesy of THR whose report astutely points out that Paramount’s reasoning for moving A Thousand Words most likely stems from Murphy’s gig hosting the 2012 Oscars on February 27th and the near guaranteed publicity it will bring to the pic. A Thousand Words is directed by Brian Robbins (Norbit) and sees Murphy play a man who learns that he only has 1,000 more words to speak prior to his demise. As for The Devil Inside, the documentary-style film from writer/director William Brent Bell was made on a six-figure budget and follows a woman who becomes involved in a series of unauthorized exorcisms.

    I wish Eddie Murphy would do movies for adults again like he used to and ceases doing children’s films. It would be sad and disappointing if he doesn’t.

    Everyone is ready to give up on him. He has alienated his fanbase for years and has made many lousy children’s movies and rarely does films for adults anymore.

    Oh, Eddie! Didn’t you learn from your last Oscar experience?! Norbit will ruin it for you! Stay as far away from that director as you can! And, please STOP with the schmaltzy dreck like a man who only has a thousand words to speak (how does one even get diagnosed with that?! Hope the doctor didn’t ask him a bunch of questions after the diagnosis!).
