Warner Bros. Bumps Pacific Rim To July 2013 Release Date

Body

1018 Guillermo Del Toro's big sci-fi monster robot movie, Pacific Rim, has seen its release date bumped back to July 2013.

Originally slated for a May 10th, 2013 release, Warner Bros. has moved the release to July 12th, 2013, according to the schedule at BoxOfficeMojo.com.

The other movie listed to debut the same day is Grown Ups 2.

The original release date in May saw Pacific Rim debuting one week after Iron Man 3, as well as one week prior to the Star Trek sequel, with Fast and the Furious 6 and The Hang Over 3 scheduled two weeks following.

Could be WB didn't want Del Toro's blockbuster, Pacific Rim, lost with all the big May sequels.

The July shift sees really no competition, other than Jurassic Park 3D on July 17th, and The Wolverine two weeks later on the 26th.

Pacific Rim sees an alien attack threaten the Earth, with giant robot Mechs piloted by humans deployed to fight off the menance and defend mankind.
