Even though "Jack & Jill" scraped the bottom of the Adam Sandler barrel, proving to be one of the worst box office outings he's had in years, Sony still believes in the comedian. And why not. In 2010 audiences made "Grown Ups" the second biggest hit of his career (behind "Big Daddy") and the studio wants to keep that gravy train rolling. And now they've set a date.

Grown Ups

Even though "Jack & Jill" scraped the bottom of the Adam Sandler barrel, proving to be one of the worst box office outings he's had in years, Sony still believes in the comedian. And why not. In 2010 audiences made "Grown Ups" the second biggest hit of his career (behind "Big Daddy") and the studio wants to keep that gravy train rolling. And now they've set a date.

"Growns Ups 2" will fart, burp, poop and put a KFC bucket on your head on July 12, 2013. Oh great. The film's original writer Fred Wolf was hired back last month to write the sequel, which would be Sandler's first, and negotiations are in the works for everyone to come back. For Sony, they're banking on America having amnesia and forgetting what a pile of shit the original movie was. For Sandler and his buddies, it's another expensive, paid vacation where they get to goof off and call it a movie.  Nothing else is slated that weekend yet, but you can probably find something better to do.

In other release date news: the Gerard Butler soccer Mom rom-com (awesome rhyme) has been pushed from March 9th all the way to Christmas Day. Maybe this will be a bigger audience pleaser than expected? Intriguing. Jason Segel's "Jeff Who Lives At Home" and Eddie Murphy's "A Thousand Words" also got slight bumps to March 16th and April 20th respectively. Finally, Joseph Kahn's weird horror/comedy thing "Detention" arrives on April 6th. It might melt your brain. [ComingSoon/BoxOfficeMojo]
