DINNER FOR SCHMUCKS Release Date Delayed
Paramount Pictures has decided to delay the release of their upcoming film “Dinner for Schmucks” by one week. Instead of releasing on July 23, the film will now hit theaters on July 30, putting it up against less daunting competition at the box office.
Paramount’s biggest concern was the July 23 release of Columbia Pictures new action thriller “Salt” starring Angelina Jolie. The company was concerned that the two films would be vying for similar audiences, particularly younger males.
By moving to July 30, “Schmucks” will face much less competition in terms of comedy films with tear-jerkers and dramas headlining the weekend including “Charlie St. Cloud”, “Twelve”, and “Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore”.
