Charlie St. Cloud date moved again apparently  
From Screen Daily:

The Matt Damon-Emily Blunt sci-fi romance The Adjustment Bureau has been shunted out of the summer to make way for the Zac Efron grief drama Charlie St Cloud, as Universal announced key changes and new release dates late last night [27].

Charlie St Cloud is brought forward to the summer from October 15 to July 30, bumping The Adjustment Bureau from that date to September 17.

Color me shocked.

I guess that means we'll get a trailer asap cause they're about a month behind on a typical romantic drama promo schedule now.

At least they are better off than Jonah Hex (cackle cackle). And interestingly enough, unless CBS moves Beastly, it means both Zac and Vanessa have films coming out the same day.

Ok seriously, I've been saying for a long time that I need some good CSC news and this just so happens to surface on the same day I finish my first year of grad school. Two epic events in one day...SCORE!!

MOST AWESOME THING EVER. Promo circuit, here I come! Universal heard that I fly out at the end of July and decided that it was only right that I was in the country to stalk... I mean... support... Zachary. :D

I am utterly speechless.....WOW!!!!!

Thank you Cady!

Oh Cady....btw...this page is soooo much easier to read when I am not on my desktop....the hi-res really ruins the beautiful job you did on this! It scrolls differently over the picture and makes the comments really hard to read.

ETA: Do you think the release date has anything to do with Zac maybe not being able to do a promo tour closer to the original release date....could it be that Zac might have another commitment now for the fall? IDK...just thinking.

It's Audrey not Aubrey: Tizaudrey_za on April 28th, 2010 06:20 am (UTC)
What I don't understand is how there's been so little promo. A standee "debuted" at ShoWest, no legit footage has surfaced, and there's not even a genuine teaser poster/trailer.

Putting aside fan-bias, I do think a Zac Efron film can move ticket sales, simply due to his name draw and prior box-office success with nation-wide releases.

I'm interested to see how this plays out.
Daniheartunprepared on April 28th, 2010 12:09 pm (UTC)
I agree with the lack of understanding about the little promo. If this IS legitimate, I'd expect something concrete (poster, trailer) to surface like, very soon.

I'm surprised about that move too. The date itself isn't that bad but as you said, they are late with promos already.

Not only the lack of a trailer but they haven't even released a synopsis or stills as part of their year or summer previews.

I really hope they start promoting now heavily because it's already very late in the game. And I can't see how Zac can even get on a cover of a monthly magazine now anymore. Even if the timing to shoot the cover would be still enough, I'm sure that all the magazines have their covers planned/booked for August (unless Uni had something planned for Matt Damon whose movie was scheduled for that date and they can just switch them). That only leaves weeklies.

I'm not super thrilled with this late change considering that no promo has happened yet.

i share jeezbee and audrey's concerns!


on the one hand, i'm very happy that the wait time has been reduced! but is the movie ready?????

not one spec of "pre-promo," no trailer, posters, etc. and re-shoots?????? why are they rushing?
Beejeezbee on April 28th, 2010 04:58 pm (UTC)
I doubt that the movie itself is an issue. They've been working on it already for 6 months. And a few reshoots aren't an issue either. You can easily edit a few scenes in in the remaining time.

The "issue" is really promotion. The fact that they haven't started yet and that there are no signs that they are ready either.
IceGoddess: why so serious dirty little secretccmskatechick on April 28th, 2010 02:11 pm (UTC)
Sorry being on east coast & needed sleep after a ridic day does not make it condusive for late night discussion.

They NEED to get on board with getting something out ASAP - even if it's a freakin 20-30 sec teaser trailer. A 3 month window/lead up isn't ideal, but it can be done correctly if they get on the ball.

I'm really wondering what happened internally that they're flip flopping the movies. I know Matt & Em were in the city recently for reshoots.

In regards to mag covers - July books wouldn't be able to happen. People are starting to close out August books (long leads like Men's Health, etc - August books hitting stands in mid July) so it would be harder to get done, but I've seen covers/features change a lot later to actual release date, get done and not be a rushed pos, but be quality work.
Beejeezbee on April 28th, 2010 04:55 pm (UTC)
I agree that 3 months can be done (esp since this is not huge movie) but that typically requires that things are designed and ready to go for that timeframe and somehow I have my doubts about this.

I'm less worried about the trailer (although it would be nice) but more that they haven't done anything at all - not even released a freaking still or poster yet.

It might have to do with the new marketing VP they just appointed a few weeks ago and/or that Adjustment Bureau seemed really not a summer movie at all and they wanted to move it into fall (where it fits much better) and filled the gap with CStC.

I think covers could be still done for those August issues (which get published mid/end July) but aren't those already booked? I can't imagine that there aren't already "taken" by other people esp in the busy summer season with all the blockbusters and big stars. There are only so few magazines where guys can get onto covers already... I hope I'm wrong but somehow I have my doubts about it. Inside? Yeah. But covers? ...

Stupid laptop charger died and desktop is in the shop so missed this last night, though I did get like 5 texts waking me up lol.

I'm surprised to say the least, but hopefully this means we get lots of Zac. Is there any idea of what this will mean as far as international promo?
Beejeezbee on April 28th, 2010 06:39 pm (UTC)
Re international promo ~

We have to wait until we see where the international release dates land; if they are close to the US one or significantly later. It'll take a few weeks until it'll trickle down into the various country organizations and for them to set a local date.
