Alright, so The Cabin in the Woods has been in limbo for a long time now, shuffling in and out of release dates, which is sad for an original horror film that seems to be getting tons of positive praise. Lionsgate originally teased us with an October release date, but sadly that won’t be the case.
The Cabin in the Woods is set to debut in theaters on April 13th, 2012. Yes, that is on a Friday the 13th!
I am both happy and sad about this news. Happy because the film finally has a release date that is confirmed from the studio and sad because I was really looking forward to enjoying a horror movie around Halloween again, but now that this is getting pushed back until next year that means Paranormal Activity 3 will be taking over October.
I bet they just didn’t want to waste a film with this much hype surrounding it. Why try and put it up against a for sure box office smash like Paranormal Activity 3? Why danger your films box office intake when you can set it up next year? Makes sense to me.
The Cabin in the Woods stars Chris Hemsworth, Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford and Jesse Williams.
