Universal Pictures has pushed back its samurai action drama 47 Ronin from a November 21, 2012 release date to February 8, 2013.
There were rumors that reshoots were taking place, although the studio denies those claims. Universal insiders say the movie is being delayed to perfect its 3D presentation. And so that they can debut trailers during the holiday season.
As of now, 47 Ronin will square off against the Relativity Media romance Safe Haven on February 8, 2013. If it stayed in the crowded November 21 slot, it would have faced Warner Bros.' Gravity, Fox's Parental Guidance, DreamWorks Animation's Rise of the Guardians, and The Weinstein Company's The Silver Linings Playbook.
