New release dates: The Road, Up in the Air, The Lovely Bones and more

There's been a lot of date changes and date announcements over the last day or so.

John Hillcoat's The Road is getting moved yet again. It was to have been released last fall, but it got pushed back. It finally premiered at the Venice Film Festival last week, but The Weinstein Company has pushed it back once again - this time by a little over a month. The film is now set to open on November 25 instead of October 16. With the new Thanksgiving weekend release The Road is going to have to contend with Disney's Old Dogs, Ninja Assassin, another Oscar hopeful Nine (also from The Weinstein Company), and Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox which will be going wide.

Jason Reitman's Up in the Air still has a wide release date of December 4, but it will likely have a limited release date of November 13 - probably in New York and L.A. The film will slowly expand and start to go wider on November 25. This means it will have to contend with The Road and Nine.

Also opening on November 25 is Richard Linklater's Me and Orson Welles starring Zac Efron and Claire Danes. It had premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year, but it's only now getting a theatrical release date.

Fantastic Mr. Fox will be in limited release on November 13 before its wide release on November 25 as previously mentioned.

Michael Moore's documentary Capitalism: A Love Story is being moved to October 2.

Low-budget horror film Paranormal Activity is getting a limited opening on September 25 and will expand based on how well it does. According to ComingSoon the film is about a young couple who "suspects that their house is haunted by a malevolent entity. They set up video surveillance to capture evidence of what happens at night as they sleep. Their surveillance and home videos have been edited into the 99 minute feature film." Apparently the film is terrifying.

Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones will be in limited release on December 11 and then expand on Christmas Day. It goes wide on January 15.

The latest film from the Coen brothers, A Serious Man is still scheduled for its limited release on October 2, but its U.S. premier is now set for September 24 in New York City at the Ziegfeld Theater.

The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond starring Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Evans has been picked up by Paladin and will screen at a few fall festivals before its limited release in late December in New York and L.A. It should expand in early 2010, but no word yet on an exact date.
