Posted: May 31, 2012 at 6:35 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

We already saw a big shift in the last two weeks when Paramount announced a month before release that “GI Joe: Retaliation” would be postponed nine months until March 2013.  Check out Blake’s thoughts here.  I think that is a special exception though, due to these films being so far from their intended release dates […]
