So Poltergeist is looking good, Kingsman not so much?

So Poltergeist is looking good, Kingsman not so much?

As any film goer knows, February is commonly referred to as ‘the dumping ground’ as far as movies go. If a film has found itself slapped with an earlier-in-the-year release, it’s likely because the studio isn’t at all confident it’s attractive enough a piece to do battle with those big Christmas/New Year releases nor any of the Oscar contenders released in a year’s third quarter. Something Garry Marshall and Bruce Willis know all about.

Strangely enough, Fox has moved “Kingsman : The Secret Service” from October to February. October would’ve seen the Colin Firth-starrer do combat with some big meat n’ potato efforts – all vying for Oscar glory – and assumingly, Murdoch’s hub weren’t confident it’d survive. The news of the sked move doesn’t sit well – but I won’t believe “Kingsman” is a pooch without bark until I see it, because there’s too much going for it. It could simply be that, while the film is great, Fox just aren’t confident it’ll do well – I guess it isn’t a known brand.

Meanwhile, and suggesting it might be actually be good, Sony has moved their “Poltergeist” remake to July24. That’s smack-bang in the middle of the U.S Summer Holiday Movie Season – not to mention Comic-Con. “Hercules” had similar scheduling this year and it… oh wait, that was crud. Jury’s still out on “Poltergeist” then.
