The Diary of a Wimpy Kid will now open on March 19 while The Last Song, which stars Miley Cyrus, will get a Wednesday release on March 31.
The site is also reporting that the Kevin MacDonald film The Eagle of the Ninth which stars Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell, has set a firm release date of September 24. The film was just tenatively set for a September 2010 release previously.
In other release-date shuffling news, CBS Films has moved its Jennifer Lopez vehicle The Back-Up Plan from April 16 back a week to April 23 and Fox Searchlight has set the Duplass Brothers indie hit Cyrus, which stars Marisa Tomei, Jonah Hill and Catherine Keener, for a July 9 release.
