Paramount has pushed back the George Clooney-toplined Up in the Air by three weeks to Dec. 4, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The move makes sense as another Clooney-starring pic, Overture's war-themed comedy The Men Who Stare at Goats is scheduled for wide release on Nov. 6. Up in the Air was likely to move because of uneasiness about the proximity of the Clooney films.
Up in the Air is considered the more commercial of the two, though either film could figure in awards-season buzz. Up in the Air originally was set for a December release until it was moved to November amid a previous round of jockeying, but the new move should avoid an awkward overlap in ads and promos.
