Paging Hollywood scheduling

Tis the season … for a vampire thriller. I thought it was weird when the Ben Affleck film Surviving Christmas was released Oct. 22 — more than two months before Christmas. It’s equally puzzling how Wesley Snipes’ Blade: Trinity is being released today — more than a month after Halloween and firmly entrenched in the holiday season.

Did they get their release dates switched in the mail or something? This is almost as puzzling as when Affleck’s Reindeer Games decked the theater hall in late February 2000. While not a holiday movie, Reindeer Games had some holiday things — like a store getting robbed by people in Santa suits.

Who knows? Maybe Hollywood knows something that I don’t. I just know that my entertainment dollars will probably go elsewhere this holiday season.
