We’ve got some release date changes for you regarding a number of 20th Century Fox properties courtesy of Box Office Mojo. First up, the Planet of the Apes reboot Rise of the Apes starring James Franco and Andy Serkis has been moved from a summer release in June to November 23rd where it will take advantage of the holiday season (as well as give the visual effects teams more time to fine-tune said CGI’d apes). Andrew Niccol’s Now starring Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried has moved back a month from September 30th to October 28th.

The Jim Carrey starred family film Mr. Popper’s Penguins has also been moved up, from August 12th to the prime summer date of June 17th where it will square off against The Green Lantern and the Cameron Diaz/Justin Timberlake comedy Bad Teacher. The David Gordon Green-directed comedy The Sitter starring Jonah Hill moves from July 17th to August 5th. The Anna Faris/Chris Evans comedy What’s Your Number? moves from April 29th to September 30th, while Monte Carlo starring Leighton Meester and Selena Gomez moves from July 1st to August 11th.

In addition to the shuffles, Fox announced the release dates of the former Alien prequel Prometheus (March 9, 2012) and the bird watching comedy The Big Year starring Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson (October 14th, 2011).
