UPDATE: Walt Disney Studios has shifted the release dates of two of the studio’s 3D films. But there were definitely some raised eyebrows at Fox today at this aggressive John Carter Of Mars vs Prometheus scheduling move by Disney. Dogfight! Prometheus is that Ridley Scott film scripted with Lost‘s Damon Lindelof from Alien DNA. So now Disney’s 3D John Carter Of Mars based on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ fantasy series comes off its June 8th, 2012, date and onto March 9, 2012. Disney also moved its Tim Burton-directed Frankenweenie based on his student film about a kid who reanimates his dog after it was run over down to October 5th, 2012, from March 9th, 2012.
Disney Moves 'John Carter Of Mars' To Same Date As Fox's 'Prometheus'
