Making a change of plan on its big-budgeted project "Avatar", 20th Century Fox has announced that it has pushed back the release date of the movie from May 22, 2009 to December 19, 2009.
Being so, the James Cameron-directed flick will now open on the same weekend as his "Titanic" did in 1997. Moreover, the shifted date consequently also gives the filmmaker more time to work on the effects and much more time for additional theaters to install 3-D screens both in the U.S. and aboard.
In replacement to "Avatar", Fox has already put "Night at the Museum 2: Escape from the Smithsonian" on the date, officially confirming that it indeed is pushing ahead with a follow-up to its 2006 box office hit "Night at the Museum." Project reportedly will be the first major Hollywood feature to be shot at the museum complex in Washington, D.C.
