Skyfall Dead Man Down

We've got scheduling changes for two films so break out your calendars and read below.

It’s been four long years since Ian Fleming’s debonair spy has graced the big screen and the wait is about to get shorter for North American audiences. The official Twitter account of Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson announced (via Deadline) that the Sam Mendes-helmed “Skyfall” will open exclusively on North American IMAX screens a day earlier than regular theaters on November 8th. Keep in mind that the film -- photographed by living legend Roger Deakins -- was not shot natively in IMAX like “The Dark Knight Rises” was, and will instead be digitally retrofitted for IMAX screens. Bond 23 opens overseas on October 26th and stateside on November 9th.

After leading two films by auteurs this year, Ridley Scott’s “Prometheus” and Brian De Palma’s “Passion,” Noomi Rapace is reuniting with Niels Arden Oplev, the director of the Swedish (and first) adaptation of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” for the romantic thriller “Dead Man Down.” While originally penciled for an April 5th, 2013 release date, U.S. distribution company FilmDistrict has moved the film’s release up a month to March 8, 2013. In recent years the month of March has proven to be profitable for studios -- 2012 saw the release of the powerhouse that was “The Hunger Games” -- and there’s usually not that much competition, but Sam Raimi’s James Franco-starring “Oz: The Great and Powerful” opens the same day and we’re not sure how well that counter-programming move will work out. “Dead Man Down” co-stars Colin Farrell as a man on a quest for vengeance against a New York crime lord with Terrence Howard, Dominic Cooper and Isabelle Huppert rounding out the cast.
