Tom Cruise sci-fi movie Oblivion IMAX release pushed back a week

By Todd Cunningham (TheWrap) Universal Pictures has pushed the IMAX release date for the Tom Cruise sci-fi movie “Oblivion” from April 12 to April 19, the studio announced.

The shift allows Universal to maximize Cruise’s international publicity efforts, expanding in several territories overseas where the film starts rolling out the weekend of April 12 and returning in time to promote the film in the U.S.

The shift also gives the 3D re-release of “Jurassic Park” an additional weekend to play in Imax theaters before “Oblivion” movies in.

The April 19 date puts “Oblivion” up against “jOBS,” the Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher from Open Road Pictures.
