Fockers Bumped, Pilgrim Locked


The new-ish Universal regime has pushed Little Fockers out of summer blockbuster season and into the holiday frame, announcing a new Dec. 22 release date for one of its big franchise hopefuls for 2010. The move means extra time on post-production but also ups the stakes for a studio that needs all the hits it can get this year; Fockers will now go up against a whole different crop of high-octane Christmas-week releases including Gulliver's Travels and The Green Hornet. Meanwhile, Universal replaced Fockers with the Matt Damon thriller The Adjustment Bureau, and locked in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World for Aug. 13. Fanboys/girls rejoice. [LAT]
