A few changes on the calendar, so get out those dry-erase markers. First up, while every studio has been tiptoeing around "The Hobbit" and its mid-December release date, Universal has finally grabbed their nutsack and said "Fuck that," moving their star-powered musical "Les Miserables" back a week to December 14th. Put that in your pipe and smoke it Gandalf! Starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Sacha Baron Cohen, Amanda Seyfried, Helena Bonham Carter and more, not only does this have the red carpet appeal of an awards season player, it also has the Broadway history to make mad box office bling. That pic of Crowe up there isn't an official still, but holy shit we wish it was.

Russell Crowe Ten Year Halloween

A few changes on the calendar, so get out those dry-erase markers. First up, while every studio has been tiptoeing around "The Hobbit" and its mid-December release date, Universal has finally grabbed their nutsack and said "Fuck that," moving their star-powered musical "Les Miserables" back a week to December 14th. Put that in your pipe and smoke it Gandalf! Starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Sacha Baron Cohen, Amanda Seyfried, Helena Bonham Carter and more, not only does this have the red carpet appeal of an awards season player, it also has the Broadway history to make mad box office bling. That pic of Crowe up there isn't an official still, but holy shit we wish it was.

Meanwhile, Anchor Bay has finally set a date for the ensemble dramedy "Ten Year," placing it on September 21st, pretty much a full year after it bowed at TIFF. Starring Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan, Anthony Mackie, Rosario Dawson, Brian Geraghty, Lynn Collins, Oscar Isaac, Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza, Ari Graynor, Ron Livingston, Justin Long, Kate Mara, Max Minghella and Scott Porter, as the title suggests, this one takes place at a ten year reunion where various dramatic and funny and dramatically funny things happen. It's uneven to be sure, but if you're a fan of anybody in that cast it's probably worth a matinee and a tub of popcorn.

Finally, the Weinsteins have yanked "Halloween 3D" from its October 26th release probably because a) it hasn't started shooting or even been cast yet, and b) no one cares. If this one kicks back to life, we'll be surprised. [BoxOfficeMojo]
