According to the always reliable Variety.com, Twentieth Century Fox is moving up the release of Tom Cruise-Cameron Diaz starrer Knight & Day by one week, from July 2 to June 25, this in order to get a jump on possible competition.
Chiefly, Knight & Day has more time in theaters before Christopher Nolan’s Leonardo DiCaprio topliner Inception bows on July 16, followed by Angelina Jolie starrer Salt, directed by Phillip Noyce, on July 23. Also, Knight & Day gets five days before Summit releases Twilight: The Eclipse. While not direct competition, Eclipse will take up plenty of oxygen.
Directed by James Mangold, Knight & Day tells the story of a small-town woman who thinks she’s met the man of her dreams. But as time goes by, she comes to suspect he’s a rogue spy.
