According to the official Facebook page, CBS Films has decided to move their romantic horror thriller Beastly to a later date. It was originally slated for release on July 30th. “Beastly fans-You guys are awesome-so we wanted to make sure you were the first to hear the official news, Beastly is moving off of July 30th,” they write adding that they don’t want fans of Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron to have to choose what to see that weekend (Universal recently moved Charlie St. Cloud to July 30). “We’ve been hearing from fans, so we know that having both Zac and Vanessa’s movies opening on the same day could be a real dilemma for people, so we are moving Beastly.” Expect a new date soon.
Directed by Daniel Barnz, and starring Vanessa Hudgens, Alex Pettyfer, Mary-Kate Olsen, Neil Patrick Harris, and Peter Krause, when a spell is cast on a handsome egocentric young man (Pettyfer) that physically transforms him into everything he despises, he has one year to find a young woman (Hudgens) who will love him despite his hideous form or the spell will last forever.
