It's time for movie musical chairs, everyone! According to Variety, only a day after Paramount did some reorganizing of their release schedule, Fox has done the same, sliding two of its movies into the empty slots left by Paramount.
Meet Dave is moving from May 30th to July 11th, which was left open after Tropic Thunder moved to August 15. Marley and Me also moved from December 19 to Christmas Day, after Paramount announced its hotly-anticipated Star Trek would move from Christmas to a summer tentpole release on May 8, 2009.
The move for Meet Dave also makes it less vulnerable to competition from other comedy films. If it would've bowed on May 30, it would've been in the eye of the comedic storm, going up against three high-profile comedies: Sex and the City: The Movie, Adam Sandler's You Don't Mess with the Zohan and Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz's What Happens in Vegas. With this July 11 release date, the closest comedy around is the Will Ferrell/John C. Reilly comedy Step Brothers, which bows two weeks later.
