'Now You See Me' Moves To March 2013, Robert Zemeckis' 'Flight' Gets November Release, 'Guilt Trip' Pushed To Christmas

The Playlist By Edward Davis | The Playlist May 10, 2012 at 6:51PM

Just when you thought it was all about 2013 now for the studios, the leftover holes in the 2012 film calendar are getting filled up quick. While many, including us, were generally expecting a 2013 picture, Paramount has announced that Robert Zemeckis' "Flightplan" (now just simply known as "Flight") starring Denzel Washington will land in theaters on November 2. Oscar-watch? Hmm, hard to tell and our gut says no, but this one does read more drama than actioner. It's got a fairly easy run, opening against teen movie "21 And Over" and Disney animation "Wreck-It Ralph," although 007 flick "Skyfall" follows the week after. Co-starring Don Cheadle, Brian Geraghty, John Goodman, James Badge Dale and Bruce Greenwood, "Flight" centers on an airline pilot (Washington) who saves a flight from crashing, but an investigation into the malfunctions reveals something troubling: his alcohol issues.

Flightplan, Now You See Me, THe Guilt Trip, dated for 2013

Just when you thought it was all about 2013 now for the studios, the leftover holes in the 2012 film calendar are getting filled up quick. While many, including us, were expecting it to be a 2013 picture, Paramount has announced that Robert Zemeckis' "Flightplan" (now simply known as "Flight") starring Denzel Washington will land in theaters on November 2. Oscar-watch? Hmm, hard to tell and our gut says no, but this one does read more drama than actioner. It's got a fairly easy run, opening against teen movie "21 And Over" and Disney animation "Wreck-It Ralph," although 007 flick "Skyfall" follows the week after. Co-starring Don Cheadle, Brian Geraghty, John Goodman, James Badge Dale and Bruce Greenwood, "Flight" centers on an airline pilot (Washington) who saves a plane from crashing, but an investigation into the malfunctions reveals something troubling: his alcohol issues.

Paramount is also evidently feeling pretty good about "The Guilt Trip." About an inventor and his mom who hit the road together so he can sell his latest invention, this Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand vehicle (what an unlikely pair) was slated for the aforementioned Nov 2 date, but now has shifted to Christmas Day 2012. It's got tough competition, with "Django Unchained" and "The Great Gatsby" opening the same day, but moms, families and people who don't like Leonardo DiCaprio need to see something, and it's certainly more promising than the Gerard Butler vehicle "Playing The Field," which also opens on December 25th.

Meanwhile, Summit's magic-based thriller "Now You See Me" directed by Louis Leterrier is looking like it's sitting prettier as well. Formerly scheduled for a January 18, 2013 date, it's been shifted to a more promising March 15, 2013 bow. Featuring a rather great cast -- Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman, Woody Harrelson, Mélanie Laurent, Dave Franco, Common and more -- plus a score from The Chemical Brothers, the film focuses on FBI agents who track a team of illusionists who pull off bank heists during their performances and reward their audiences with the money. Nifty concept, and a film we're truly excited about: it'll open against weakish competition, the "Carrie" remake and the "Percy Jackson" sequel. [BOM]
