Narnia 3, del Toro's Wolfman Pushed Back

And oh, by the way, Jerry Bruckheimer hates us all.

Three high-profile films have just received new release dates.

The studios never tire of shifting releases around on the calendar, and the politics and gamesmanship that go into their scheduling decisions are always entertaining to watch (sometimes more entertaining than the films themselves, sadly). Yesterday, a post at ComingSoon (referencing data at Box Office Mojo) tipped readers off to new release dates for a trio of tentpoles.

First, Walt Disney has pushed The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader back from May 1, 2009 to May 7, 2010, thus putting a more traditional two-year distance between the second Narnia installment (next May’s The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian) and the third. Taking its place is something called G-Force, which ComingSoon describes as “a Jerry Bruckheimer-produced live-action/CGI family feature…which follows a group of intelligent animal commandos working for a government agency trying to prevent an evil billionaire from taking over the world.”

Yes, you read that right.

Also being pushed back is Mark Romanek‘s The Wolfman, a remake of Universal’s 1941 horror classic starring Benicio del Toro in the title role. Originally scheduled for a November 12, 2008 release, Wolfman is now slated to hit theaters in the spring of 2009.

Intelligent animal commandos. Seriously.
