“MacGruber” moved back a month


Universal Pictures announced today that “MacGruber,” the comedy based on Will Forte’s recurring “Saturday Night Live” character, will open one month later than planned: Friday, May 21, as opposed to Friday, April 23. This pits “MacGruber” against Paramount’s “Shrek Forever After,” which already had claimed that weekend. 
In “MacGruber,” Forte plays a clueless soldier of fortune who somehow has earned the rank of Green Beret, Navy SEAL and Army Ranger. On his latest mission, he faces off against Dieter Von Cunth (Val Kilmer), and is assisted by Dixon Piper (Ryan Phillippe) and Vicki St. Elmo (Kristen Wiig).

Also receiving a release date is Universal’s “Fast Five,” the fifth installment in the “Fast and the Furious” franchise. Vin Diesel and Paul Walker return in their starring roles for the latest adventure. The movie hits theaters on Friday, June 10.
