Sony’s 2012 Moved to November

Director Roland Emmerich’s sci-fi film 2012 has been pushed back from its original July 10 release date to Nov. 13.

Execs at Sony tell Variety the move makes sense given the studio’s strong summer slate and its success with a mid-November release on the past two James Bond films.

The film now will compete with Warner Bros.’ Sherlock Holmes and Fox’s The Tooth Fairy.
