Year of the Spy: Warner Bros. dodges M:I 5

Paramount’s decision to move Mission Impossible 5 up to late July has caused Warner Bros. to change its summer release schedule — but not (at least for now) its movie version of The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

Warners had its Point Break action movie slotted for July 31. That was before M:I 5, with star-producer Tom Cruise, was placed on the same date after originally being scheduled for Dec. 25.

So now, Warners has moved Point Break to Dec. 25, according to the BOX OFFICE MOJO WEBSITE. Thus M:I 5 and Point Break have swapped their original release date.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E., also from Warners, is still slotted in for Aug. 14, just two weeks after M:I 5. Thus, movies based on two 1960s spy shows still will debut just a fortnight apart.
