Add to that The Perfect Game, which also comes out on August 8, and it looks like a varied triple-header -- one that I think wouldn't have much opening weekend overlap. Still, to get a head up on the competition, Ace Showbiz reports that those Traveling Pants will now hit the screens two days earlier, on August 6. WB distribution president Dan Fellman explains: "It gives us a couple days of extra summer play time. So it just looked like a smart thing to do."
Do you think it will make a difference for the young girl box office? I think it's safe to say that neither of the other two contenders will pull in the same audience, aside from some small overlap.
