Just as Alan F. Horn steps into his new role as chairman of Disney from departed suit Rich Ross--The company has shuffled the release dates of some of its big tentpoles says THR
The most notable is Steven Spielberg's
"Robopocalypse", which hasn't begun production
yet, the film has been pushed back almost a full year - from July 3rd 2013 to April 25th
With that slot free, Disney has moved its adaptation of "The Lone Ranger" into the July 3rd 2013
release from its original May 2013 release date scheduled.
There's also a minor move for Thor 2 which will now open
November 8th 2013, a week earlier than previously announced.
