"Jupiter Ascending" moving to February 2015 wasn't the only big release schedule change/addition this week. David O. Russell, the mind behind "Silver Linings Playbook" and "American Hustle", has landed a Christmas slot for his bio of the Miracle Mop inventor, Joy Mangano.

"Jupiter Ascending" moving to February 2015 wasn't the only big release schedule change/addition this week.  David O. Russell, the mind behind "Silver Linings Playbook" and "American Hustle", has landed a Christmas slot for his bio of the Miracle Mop inventor (yes really), Joy Mangano.  Here's a complete list of the changes...

JOY---FOX---IN 12/25/15
As alluded to above, director David O. Russell brings the story of Joy Mangano, the inventor of the Miracle Mop, who is reportedly worth $50 million, to the big screen possibly with Jennifer Lawrence to star.  Christmas 2015 already has "Mission Impossible 5" and "Kung Fu Panda 3" there and "Star Wars Episode VII" is one week earlier.  Fox is looking for "Joy" to recreate Russell's Oscar success of "Silver Linings Playbook" and "American Hustle"

SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS 2---PARAMOUNT---IN 2/6/15   OUT 2/13/15
It;s now time for the sing-along portion of today's blog.  Ready?  Here we go.  ...Ohhhhh, who lives in a pineapple under the sea...SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS!, absorbant and yellow and porous is he...SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS!, if nautical nonsense is....ummm ok I'll stop.  Anyone who has a child between the ages of 5 and 25 knows all about SpongeBob, Patrick, Squiward, Mr. Krabs, Gary and the other residents of Bikini Bottom.. The dimwitted sponge's return to the big screen moves off a week filled with Focus' "50 Shades of Gray" and Fox's "Poltergeist" redo and onto a week with the aforementioned "Jupiter Ascending", Johnny Depp's "Mortdecai" and Universal's "Seventh Son".  The date looks very crowded but the film obviously is counter programming and will allow it to run through the month of February, which currently has no other family/animated titles. Ahoy maties.

RUN ALL NIGHT---WARNERS---IN TBA   OUT 2/6/15
The Wachowskis and Channing Tatum send Lian Neeson to the sidelines.  No easy feat.  A new release date for the film is TBD.

DESERT DANCER---RELATIVITY---IN 3/20/15 (PLATFORM, EXPANSION 3/27)   OUT 8/15/14
There's positive buzz on this biopic of Iranian dancer Afshin Ghaffarian, with Reece Ritchie and Freda Pinto.
