According to THR Warner Bros. has pushed Bryan Singer’s Jack the Giant Killer back from June 15, 2012 to March 22, 2013. No reason has been given, but June 2012 is looking rather busy with Snow White and the Huntsman, Prometheus, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Brave and G.I. Joe: Retaliation all hitting within weeks of each other, so the move may have been to avoid Giant Killer getting swamped.

The studio has also moved the Tom Cruise musical Rock Of Ages into Killer’s old slot (June 15), and have taken Arthur & Lancelot off their release schedule entirely having previously been aiming for March 15, 2013. The reimagining of the King Arthur legend, starring Kit Harington and Joel Kinnaman, has been having budget issues and the studio has asked director David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers) to make cuts. THR say the movie isn’t dead, but Dobkin and the studio are trying to get around or below $100m from $130m.
