Paramonth MovesThe Dictator Release To Avoid Dark Shadows Opening Weekend

Deadline Hollywood reports that Paramount Pictures have postponed the release of their comedy The Dictator. The Sacha Baron Cohen film was originally set to debut on May 11, head-to-head with the new Dark Shadows movie, but will now reach cinemas on May 16.

The comedic elements of the Dark Shadows trailer contributed to the decision: "Paramount didn’t want to risk cannibalizing the comedy audience by bashing heads with a rival on the same opening weekend."

The Avengers opens on May 4 and is expected to be big at the box office in its second weekend against the Dark Shadows opening.
