With release schedules in the fall generally packed with tentpoles trying to muscle their way between Oscar contenders, it can be tough to try and fit something in that's neither. And certainly, Cameron Crowe's upcoming untitled rom-com would've faced stiff competition. Originally set for a Christmas Day release, the movie has now been pushed to next spring, and it looks like a wise move.

With release schedules in the fall generally packed with tentpoles trying to muscle their way between Oscar contenders, it can be tough to try and fit something in that's neither. And certainly, Cameron Crowe's upcoming untitled rom-com would've faced stiff competition. Originally set for a Christmas Day release, the movie has now been pushed to next spring, and it looks like a wise move.

Sony has announced the release date change and it takes Crowe's movie out of the way of Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken," Disney's musical "Into The Woods," MGM's sequel "Hot Tub Time Machine 2," and the family movie "Paddington" all opening in wide release. And that's not to mention the MLK pic "Selma" and Tim Burton's "Big Eyes" coming in limited release. Sometimes, you gotta know when to fold 'em. And to hear Sony tell it, Crowe's film probably wasn't going to be an awards season contender anyway. Now, the still-untitled film will open on May 29, 2015, putting it right in blockbuster season, and it will face far lesser competition with "Insidious Chapter 3" and "Monster Trucks" opening.

“Once we saw the film, we knew that it would make a perfect summer release. The movie is Cameron at his best,” Jeff Blake, Chairman, Worldwide Marketing and Distribution for Sony Pictures said. And this cast will certainly make for an attractive multiplex offering.

Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray, John Krasinski, Danny McBride, and Alec Baldwin are part of the ensemble about a celebrated military contractor who reconnects with a long-ago love while unexpectedly falling for the hard-charging Air Force watchdog assigned to him. Meanwhile, a complex satellite system is being launched by an enigmatic billionaire with suspicious intentions. So yes, sounds more wacky and less statue worthy. While we're bummed we'll have to wait even longer for this, we're glad it's getting a date deserving of what Crowe is putting together. [The Wrap]
