WSAZ, the West Virginia-based TV station serving the Huntington/Charleston viewing area, reported Sunday that the film We Are...Marshall has a new release date of December 22, 2006. WSAZ reported it's source as "an Internet film site," adding it could not confirm the information.
That's pretty shoddy reporting, in my book.
The Internet site which lists the new date of release is Comingsoon.net. It does list December 22, 2006 as the release date; however, I'm guessing that's incorrect. A holiday week opening would suggest that the studio has incredible expectations for We Are...Marshall. And while I hope and expect (mostly hope) the flick is good, I'm doubtful it will be holiday-week release worthy.
I could be wrong. I hope I am.
Update: The on-line edition of Monday's Huntington Herald-Dispatch reports that Warner Bros. has confirmed the movie's release date has been moved back to December 22, 2006. See here for details.
