Two films got release dates today: A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas and Seth MacFarlane‘s directorial debut Ted both have spots on the calendar. But there’s a price (of sorts) as the Ashley Greene thriller The Apparition has been bumped from a fall date back to 2012. Details on all three after the break.
The third Harold & Kumar film, A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas, will now release on November 4 2011. John Cho and Kal Penn reunite in the film, which also features Neil Patrick Harris, Paula Garces, Danneel Harris, Bobby Lee, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Tom Lennon, Danny Trejo, Amir Blumenfeld, David Burtka, Fred Melamed, Patton Oswalt and Richard Riehle and has the following plot:
Six years have elapsed since Guantanemo Bay, leaving Harold and Kumar estranged from one another with very different families, friends and lives. But when Kumar arrives on Harold’s doorstep during the holiday season with a mysterious package in hand, he inadvertently burns down Harold’s father-in-law’s beloved Christmas tree. To fix the problem, Harold and Kumar embark on a mission through New York City to find the perfect Christmas tree, once again stumbling into trouble at every single turn.
Meanwhile, Universal will release Seth MacFarlane’s Ted on July 13, 2012, opposite Ice Age: Continental Drift. The official line on the film, which stars Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Joel McHale and Giovanni Ribisi is:
Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane brings his boundary-pushing brand of comedy to the big screen for the first time as writer and director of Ted, the story of a grown man who must deal with his cherished teddy bear who came to life as the result of a childhood wish and has never left his side since.
And The Apparition, which stars Ashley Greene, Sebastian Stan and Tom Felton, will now be given a new date in 2012 rather than the September 9 date it previously had. Todd Lincoln wrote and directs the story about “A couple haunted by a supernatural presence that is unleashed during a college experiment.”
