The mini-major today bumped up the release of Johnny Depp’s action comedy by two weeks and moved the Blake Lively romantic drama back by three months. Mortdecai, in which Depp plays a debonair art dealer caught up in international intrigue, is replacing The Age Of Adeline in the January 23 slot, where it will square off against Universal’s Jennifer Lopez thriller The Boy Next Door. Adaline, which also stars Harrison Ford and Ellen Burstyn, now will open April 24 versus Open Road’s comedy Rock The Kasbah starring Zooey Deschanel, Bruce Willis, Kate Hudson and Bill Murray.
