Did you see Legion, the dreadful biblical action movie that was hardly biblical and barely an action movie? Don't feel bad, no one else did, either. Word of mouth seems to have effectively (and rightfully) killed Screen Gems' baby with a second weekend drop off at the box office that guarantees it can never be called a hit. But studios have lukewarm flicks all the time, right, no big deal?
Well, apparently it was a pretty big deal at the Sony owned genre arm. In what cannot be a coincidence, four days after Legion's 60% drop at the box office Screen Gems have announced the following release date shuffles:
- The Roommate: Sept. 17, 2010 to Feb. 4, 2011
- Priest: Aug 10, 2010 to Jan. 14, 2011
- Underworld 4: Jan 21, 2011 to Sept. 23, 2011
In addition to the date changes, it is looking like original Underworld helmer Len Wiseman and star Kate Beckinsale will be returning for part 4, though the rumor that it was going to arrive in 3D appears to have dried up. However, it does look like Priest, directed by Legion's Scott Stewart, will now be Priest 3D.
