ROBOCOP and ELYSIUM Release Dates Pushed Back

Sony Pictures has pushed the release date of Jose Padilha's RoboCop reboot from August 9th, 2013 all the way to February 7th, 2014. It will now open up alongside DreamWorks' Need For Speed. The movie is currently in production as you can see from all of the set photos that have been released, and I like what I'm seeing so far. 

Neill Blomkamp and Matt Damon's cool looking sci-fi movie Elysium was also moved from March 1st, 2013 into RoboCop's original spot of August 9th. The studio also moved Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers to September 27th, 2013.

There's no reason given for the release date shuffle or why RoboCop was moved back so far, but I imagine they will want more time to polish it up and give it a decent 3D conversion.
