DreamWorks is moving Steven Spielberg’s War Horse from August to December 28 of 2011. Stacey Snider said today that after screening footage, the studio decided that it felt “like a holiday movie.” In other DreamWorks moves, The Help, starring Emma Stone and Bryce Dallas Howard, has been dated for August 12, and Shawn Levy’s Real Steel, starring Hugh Jackman, will be moving from November 18 to October 7. Fright Night 3D, starring Colin Farrell, is now slated for August 19. Cowboys & Aliens doesn’t move, staying on July 29. The War Horse screenplay was written by Lee Hall and Richard Curtis and is based on the novel by Michael Morpurgo and the popular West End play. The War Horse shift puts it in direct competition with another Spielberg film, The Adventures of Tin Tin, from Paramount and Sony.
