It seemed like a head-scratcher that Disney kept the Kevin Costner track movie "McFarland" in a heavy-traffic pre-Thanksgiving slot as long as they have but now cooler and smarter heads have prevailed and the Mouse House moved the film to 2015. In addition, Dreamworks moved two of their animateds from November to Xmas. Here's a complete list...

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas for Dreamworks Animation and Fox as the companies have re-slotted two November animated offerings to Christmas playdates.  Here's a list of those changes plus all the other movement from a busy week at the Release Schedule Board...

MCFARLAND---DISNEY---NOW 2/20/15   WAS 11/21/14
Uh yeah, good move guys getting this Kevin Costner track movie (no, he doesn't run) out mile-a-minute November of this year and onto a 2015 date that right now only include two gun movies,  Open Road's Sean Penn-starrer, "Gunman" and Natalie Portman in Relativity's "Jane Got A Gun".

ROCK THE KASBAH---OPEN ROAD---NOW 4/24/15
Ok we already love this movie and we haven't seen a thing on it.  Down-On-His-Luck rock manager Bill Murray travels with his last client to a USO tour stop in Afghanistan and discovers a young girl who he eventually grooms for an Afghan televised singing competition.  Right now the film has April 24th all to its lonesome.  Shareef don't like it, but we do.

THE CROODS 2---DREAMWORKS ANIMATION/FOX---NOW 12/22/17   WAS 11/3/17
