"Midnight Meat Train" Finds New Date

Ryuhei Kitamura's American debut film is facing some release date problems as of late. The May 16th release date was dropped because the studio didn't want to pit the movie up against "Narnia."

Now the film is looking at a theatrical release date of August 1st. Good news I suppose, but apparently the studio is looking at giving it a limited release. It sounds like Lions Gate just doesn't have a lot of confidence in this movie, i.e. it sucks. As much as I want to like it, its been clearer than I want to admit that this movie hasn't been going anywhere good.

Of course, there is that bleak hope that I'm wrong. Who knows. It's not certain that the movie will receive a limited release, but the August 1st date seems pretty solid. We should see the train roll in on that date, limited or not.
