Release Date Changes for Fox’s RISE OF THE APES and THE SITTER Starring Jonah Hill

     March 22, 2011


We’ve got a couple of release date shifts for you this evening. 20th Century Fox has moved its Planet of the Apes prequel Rise of the Apes again, this time from November 23rd to August 5th, where it will be up against the Ryan Reynolds/Jason Bateman body-switching comedy The Change-Up, Sony’s The Smurfs and Timur Beckmambetov’s sci-fi thriller The Darkest Hour. Originally, the James Franco-starred flick was set to be released this June, but Fox pushed it back for a holiday release. Now, the studio is positioning the film as the “last big event movie of the summer.” Rise of the Apes stars stars James Franco, Freida Pinto, John Lithgow, Brian Cox, and Andy Serkis.

Additionally, Fox announced via Twitter that it’s moving director David Gordon Green’s R-rated childcare comedy The Sitter from August 5th to the prime holiday date of December 9th, where it will go head-to-head with Garry Marshall’s star-studded New Year’s Eve. The Sitter stars Jonah Hill, Sam Rockwell and J.B. Smoove.
