Yesterday was a bit hectic in terms of release date shuffling. We're not sure if there was something in the water over in Hollywood, or if Disney's hiring of ex-Warners chief Alan Horn had something to do with it, but nevertheless many major upcoming films shifted their release dates. We covered most of them in yesterday's Afternoon Filler, but thought it might also be wise (for our own sanity) to just round them all up right here and plug in some of the other major blockbusters so you have an idea of what the next two summer movie seasons now look like.
