‘Mr. Fox’ U.S. Release Date Change

According to Coming Soon, Fox has moved Fantastic Mr. Fox back a week and a half to November 25th, the day before Thanksgiving.

Box Office Mojo, however, lists the 25th as the date of the wide release, with the film opening in New York and Los Angeles on the 13th, and then a limited expansion on the 20th. We’ll keep you informed of any further information.

  1. Is this good news or bad news? Usually the whole “let’s-push-this-baby-back” tactic points to panic, but I think in this case they’ve got their fingers crossed for the holiday rush.

  2. Seeing as it’s only a week and a half, it’s not that big of a push if it is indeed a push. I wonder if perhaps the November 13th date was annnounced but not clarified as just the NY/LA release and was maybe never intended as the Wide date.

    There’s no other “family” competition besides the awful looking “Area 51” coming out around that time. I’m guessing they’re going to push it around the holiday week and try to get families to go. I think it should work out well depending on word of mouth and reviews.
