Tom Cruise, “Rock of Ages” land 2012 release date

By Sean O’Connell A few anticipated titles are moving around the calendar as studios button up their release dates for 2012. Write everything in pencil, however, as dates are subject to change (which means it definitely will happen).

For now, Warner Bros. plans to release Adam Shankman’s “Rock of Ages” adaptation with Tom Cruise and Alec Baldwin on June 1, 2012. The movie take on the Broadway smash also stars Julianne Hough of “Dancing with the Stars” and Mary J. Blige.

Two weeks later, WB has penciled in Bryan singer’s “Jack the Giant Killer,” which updates the Jack and the Beanstalk myth for a new generation. “Jack” currently stars Bill Nighy, Ian McShane, Stanley Tucci and Nicholas Hoult as Jack.

Not all moves are positive, however. THR reports that Lionsgate is shifting Katherine Heigl comedy crime film “One for the Money” to Jan. 27, 2012. It initially was going to be a summer release for the studio. And while Lionsgate will spin the fact that the adaptation of Jane Evanovich’s bestselling book will play better in January, moves to the first month of the year are never a vote on confidence in your product. Ever.
