     September 18, 2012


Hot on the heels of the news that Universal is shifting Les Miserables to Christmas Day this year, a few changes and debuts set for some 2013 releases have been announced.  Briefly:

  • I, Frankenstein – The graphic novel adaptation of the eponymous monster, played by Aaron Eckhart, has been pushed from February 22nd to September 13th, 2013.
  • Battle of the Year – The breakdancing (or “B-boy”) film starring Josh Holloway, Josh Peck, and Chris Brown has been pushed from this January all the way to September 13th, 2013.
  • Snitch – The action thriller starring Dwayne Johnson has been set for release on February 22nd, 2013.
  • No Good Deed – The thriller featuring Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson has been given a pre-Halloween release of October 18th, 2013.

Hit the jump for more details.

i-frankenstein-comic-book-coverDirector Stuart Beattie’s monster thriller I, Frankenstein has been pushed all the way from this coming February to next September.  Eckhart stars in this modern-day update of the classic Mary Shelley tale, with Adam Frankenstein being hunted by demons that want to learn the secret of his creation in order to build an army of reanimated corpse demons (naturally).  Yvonne Strahovski, Bill Nighy, and Miranda Otto fill out the rest of the cast, and the film now faces off against the 3D re-release of The Little Mermaid and Battle of the Year.

Which brings us to Battle of the Year.  The B-boy breakdancing pic already has a trailer, but Screen Gems has decided to push its release from this coming January back to September 13th.  No reason is given for the move (per Box Office Mojo), but the film now opens opposite I, Frankenstein and The Little Mermaid 3D.

Director Ric Roman Waugh’s (Felon) action thriller Snitch has been dated for February 22nd, 2013.  Dwayne Johnson stars as a father forced to become an informant for the DEA to reduce his falsely accused son’s 10-year jail sentence.  The impressive ensemble cast also includes Susan Sarandon, Barry Pepper, Michael K. Williams, Joe Bernthal, and Benjamin Bratt.  The Summit pic currently has no competition on the February date, but opens one week before Neil Blomkamp’s sci-fi pic Elysium.

Finally, the thriller No Good Deed has been given a spooktacular October 18th, 2013 release date.  The story centers on a one-time district attorney who is kidnapped along with her two children, but little else is known about the film plotwise.  Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson star, and the film will face off against the fantasy pic The Seventh Son, starring Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore.
