20th Century Fox is making some changes to its release calendar today, moving Ang Lee's Life of Pi up from December 21 to November 21, and locking in a June 28, 2013 release date for Shawn Levy's comedy The Internship.
Ang Lee's Life of Pi scheduled moves up one month to November 21
Life of Pi is an adaptation of Yann Martel's novel, which centers on a young man who is cast adrift in a lifeboat with a hyena, a zebra, an orangutan, and a Bengal tiger. The drama will now open on Thanksgiving weekend, where it will debut against Red Dawn, Parental Guidance, Rise of the Guardians, and The Silver Linings Playbook.
We first reported on The Internship last month, when Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson signed on to star. The story centers on two old-school salesmen who try to reinvent themselves in the digital world, by becoming interns at a tech company. The comedy will square off against Universal's R.I.P.D. in the June 28, 2013 release slot.
Life of Pi was released November 21st, 2012 and stars Irrfan Khan, Suraj Sharma, Gérard Depardieu, Rafe Spall, Tabu, Adil Hussain, Shravanthi Sainath, Andrea Di Stefano. The film is directed by Ang Lee.
