The Hollywood Reporter has reported that Universal Pictures has decided shift the release date of Snow White and the Huntsman to June 1st, 2012, beating Relativity’s Snow White film in the race to theaters by almost a month, though the studio made no mention of the Snow White competition when speaking of the date shift.
Their report states:
“Universal’s Sunday announcement made no mention of the competing movie. The studio only said “adjustments to the production timeline” had facilitated the move.
“As Rupert and Joe were finalizing casting and preproduction of Snow White and the Huntsman, we realized that the ambitious and fully-formed world they had promised was blowing away all expectations,” said Universal Chairman Adam Fogelson and Co-Chairman Donna Langley jointly in the announcement. “We’re thrilled that Universal will be bringing this singular version of a timeless story almost seven months earlier than anticipated.”
