by at . Comments

Here's a bit of news on a pair of hihgly anticipated movies for 2009:

20th Century Fox has announced the studio will release Night at the Museum 2: Escape From the Smithsonian on May 22, 2009, while also moving back James Cameron's 3-D Avatar from its previously scheduled Memorial Day slot.

It will not hit theaters on December 18, 2009, giving the director more time for post-production.


Night at the Museum 2: Escape From the Smithsonian will be the first major Hollywood movie shot at the famous complex in Washington, D.C. Ben Stiller returns to star in it.

Avatar, meanwhile, will now open on the same weekend that Cameron's Titanic did in 1997. The live-action/CGI hybrid is Cameron's first feature since that Oscar winner.
