Audiences are going to have to wait a little longer for their laughter food. Box Office Mojo reports that the Steve Carrell/Paul Rudd comedy Dinner for Schmucks has been pushed back from July 23rd to July 30th. This gives the film a lot more breathing room since its only competition that weekend is the family flick Cats & Dogs: Revenge of Kitty Galore and the Zac Efron romantic-drama Charlie St. Cloud. Had it stayed at the 23rd, Dinner would have had to face off against the Angelina Jolie action-flick Salt as well as holdovers Inception and The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
Hit the jump to check out the Dinner for Schmucks trailer along with the official synopsis.
For those just tuning in (and couldn’t gather the premise from the trailer), here’s the official synopsis:
“Dinner for Schmucks” tells the story of Tim (Paul Rudd), a guy on the verge of having it all. The only thing standing between him and total career success is finding the perfect guest to bring to his boss’ annual Dinner for Extraordinary People, an event where the winner of the evening brings the most eccentric character as his guest. Enter Barry (Steve Carell), a guy with a passion for dressing mice up in tiny outfits to recreate great works of art. From Jay Roach, director of “Meet the Parents” and “Meet the Fockers” comes an unforgettable feast about two unlikely friends and one very memorable dinner. The film co-stars Zach Galifianakis, Jemaine Clement, Larry Wilmore, Jeff Dunham, Stephanie Szostak, Bruce Greenwood, and Ron Livingston.
