’7500′ Not Even At The Gate Yet, Delayed Until 2013

Hope you have a meal voucher. The Grudge director Takashi Shimizu’s new airplane thriller 7500 won’t be taking off for at least another 7 or 8 months. That’s a long wait to figure out what the hell is going on in that photo. Per Deadline, “The horror-thriller 7500, directed by Takashi Shimizu, is moving to a yet-to-be-determined date in 2013 from August 31, 2012.

It kind of makes sense though. This is a crowded summer that has already seen one of the biggest blockbusters ever (The Avengers) dominate the marketplace. Even supposedly surefire things like Dark Shadows are only tracking moderately. The move doesn’t necessarily mean the movie’s bad – it might just mean that it’s too small of a movie to properly compete in this climate.

In the film, Ryan Kwanten and Amy Smart co-star as married couple Brad and Pia Martin, who board Vista Pacific Flight 7500 with their two longtime friends for a trip to Japan. Leslie Bibb is set to play Laura Baxter, a stewardess on the transpacific liner, who is involved in a complicated and secret relationship. Johnathon Schaech, Jamie Chung, Nicky Whelan, Christian Serratos, Scout Taylor-Compton, Jerry Ferrara, and Alex Frost also star.

    Stupid they should just release it in September if there that scared of summer competition. No need to push it back an entire year

    That counts as a February release, and we all know what that means…
