You’re not going to be happy about this, but Hot Fuzz has been moved back a week to April 20. This might really be good news, though, as Focus/Rogue says “This new date gives us a prime position to aggressively launch the film here in the US.” Could this mean that the movie will be opening wide after all? It defintely takes the film out of the tailwind of Grindhouse, which can’t hurt. The studio says the reason for the delay is how well-received the movie has been at screenings in the UK and the US – no duh, guys, the movie’s fucking great! (And my review is coming this weekend)
In the meantime, here’s the US poster – it has more explosions, so you know it’s for the US! – to tide you over.
