This morning, we have the most interesting of all news stories: release dates and title changes!  How else will you know when things are coming out or what they’ll be called?  These are fundamental changes and you should appreciate them.  First up, Deadline reports that Walter Hill‘s action flick Bullet to the Head, starring Sylvester Stallone, has been kicked off the release calendar.  The film was set to open on April 13th against The Cabin in the Woods and The Three Stooges, but now it’s floating in limbo.  Bullet to the Head follows a New Orleans hitman who teams up with a Gotham cop to hunt down those responsible for the deaths of their respective partners.

Hit the jump for the new title of the Will Ferrell-Zach Galifianakis political comedy.

In an unrelated story, Jay Roach‘s political comedy Rivals has a new title.  The movie was originally titled Dog Fight before being re-titled Rivals and now it’s called The Campaign.  The film is about rival politicians (Ferrell and Galifianakis) in a small congressional district in South Carolina, and it’s still set to open on August 10th when the Presidential election race is in full swing.  The Campaign will square off at the box office against the dramedy Great Hope Springs starring Meryl Streep, Steve Carell, and Tommy Lee Jones.
