‘The Gambler’ Release Date: Paramount All In, Moves It To Christmas Day Wide Bow

Paramount Pictures said today it is moving the release date of its Mark Wahlberg starrer The Gambler from Friday, December 19, to Thursday, December 25. And what was to be a platform bow is now a wide release. The studio is positioning the remake of the 1974 James Caan pic for awards-season play, and it just world premiered at AFI Fest.

If you’re keeping score at home, the pic joins a serious Christmas Day slate that includes Disney’s Into The Woods, Universal’s Unbroken, Warner Bros’ American Sniper, Sony’s The Interview and Paramount’s own Selma — which opened at AFI Fest the same night as Gambler.
