For those that are interested, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit has been postponed to the Cinematic wasteland they call, January. Scheduled to be released on Friday January 17th, 2014. I wonder if it will still do well at the box office, since there is literally no marketing to it all. Despite having now, two posters, and a trailer, I haven't heard much at all.
Also, I was given an invitation to attend a private screening of Pierce Brosnan's spy film, November Man, but I ended up not going, as I couldn't make it, which shames me, because I really wanted to see it and to see Brosnan back on the screen.
January is no longer considered a wasteland anymore. The studios have had lots of success with this time slot, and since THE HOBBIT 2 will clean up again it´s possible a good idea to get this film out of the way and give it a chance when all the other high profile releases of the Christmas season are running out. Hence, no marketing so far.
Still, if the film had been testing through the roof they would have put it out in late spring where releases begin to expand the summer season.
December never seemed well with me, Summer seems better. I'm concerned that the studio has no faith, because with 5-6 weeks left, there's nothing, no talk from average cinema goers at all. None of my friends had even heard of it. Hell, the studio canceled the test screening I was supposed to go to a while back which concerns me.
