The good people over at 20th Century Fox appear to not quite know when the hell they want to release a couple of their bigger named projects.

According to their Twitter account, both THE SITTER and THE RISE OF THE APES have seen their release dates shifted.

First, David Gordon Green’s second film of 2011, THE SITTER, has moved from August 5 to December 9, leaving many to believe that the film itself just isn’t quite ready yet. Green will be seeing his latest film, YOUR HIGHNESS, hit theaters in a few weeks, so while we may have to wait a while for this one, a year with two Green films is a year that I really hope never quite ends.

Then there is THE RISE OF THE APES, which moves up dates, from November 23, to August 5, making it the “last big event movie of the summer,” according to Fox.

Personally, it’s really interesting to note that these two release dates appear to be setting up both films for their biggest possible box office gain. THE SITTER will have a relatively big slate to go against, but one that it will likely stick out in, and the move for APES makes this writer believe that we may be in for something quite interesting from the film.
