Universal Pictures has capitalized on Warner Bros.' decision to push their adaptation The Great Gatsby out of its Christmas 2012 release date, by shifting Les Miserables from December 14 to December 25.
In related news, Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment have decided to shuffle a few release dates of their own, pushing I, Frankenstein from February 22, 2013 to September 13, 2013. The comic book adaptation starring Aaron Eckhart now faces Sony's Battle of The Year: The Dream Team (which was also recently delayed from its original January 13, 2013 release date), and Disney's 3D re-release of The Little Mermaid.
Summit Entertainment, which is owned by Lionsgate, is putting Snitch in the February 22, 2013 release slot. It is currently the only movie scheduled for release that weekend.
