Disney Studios has set release dates for several of their upcoming highly anticipated films today, one of which is the highly anticipated alien sci-fi film 1952, which is being developed by Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof. It was also confirmed that George Clooney would star in the film, that it will hit theaters on December 19th, 2014, and that it will be released in 3D. There's not much concrete evidence on what this movie is about, but it has been described as being similar to Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
It was also announced that Captain America: The Winter Solider, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Maleficent would all be released in 3D, which really isn't surprising. Reporting on a movie coming out in 3D isn't really even news anymore because any big film is going to get the 3D treatment these days - it may not be welcome, but it's expected now.
Here's the rundown of release dates...
The Muppets 2 - March 21, 2014.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier - April 4, 2014
Maleficent - July 2, 2014 (Moved from Friday, March 14, 2014 in 3D).
Guardians of the Galaxy - August 1, 2014
Pirates of the Caribbean 5 - July 10, 2015.
The Little Mermaid 3D re-release is no longer happening.
