Some big movies with some big stars have had their release dates shuffled around. Here they are at a glance:

Hit the jump for more on each of these movies.

Director Christopher McQuarrie’s (The Way of the Gun) adaptation of the Lee Child’s novel, One Shot stars Cruise as Jack Reacher, an ex-Army investigator who gets drawn into a mystery involving a sniper who has already murdered five people, apparently at random. Director Werner Herzog (Into the Abyss) will make a rare appearance in front of the camera as The Zec, the film’s villain. One Shot also stars Richard Jenkins as the district attorneyMichael Raymond-James (True Blood) as The Zec’s henchman,  Robert Duvall, Rosamund Pike as Reacher’s love interest, and David Oyelowo as a veteran homicide detective. Paramount must have faith in the picture, as it will open around the same time as Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained.

Moving towards a summer release will be the Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace) adaptation of World War Z, the popular zombie apocalypse novel by Max Brooks. Brad Pitt stars as a United Nations employee “who traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself.” The film also stars Anthony Mackie, Matthew Fox, Mireille Enos, and James Badge Dale. Get caught up on all of our previous coverage here.

Finally, fans of the classic franchise, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be happy to see that the reboot of the feature films finally has a street date. Battle: Los Angeles director Jonathan Liebesman is in charge of direction; we’ll be able to judge his eye for action in his upcoming Wrath of the Titans. The live-action film has no specific plot or cast as of yet, but Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol writers, Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec are on the case. Look to Christmas Day of 2013 to see the Turtles! [All release dates courtesy of Box Office Mojo.]
