20th Century Fox is swapping dates with two of its fall movies. The Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain-starring The Martian is moving out of Thanksgiving and up to October 2nd and Victor Frankenstein starring James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe is stepping into the Thanksgiving date.

By making the switch, Fox takes the Frankenstein film out of October and before the Halloween holiday and puts it into the other slot. The latest version loosely based on the classic Mary Shelley novel follows the relationship between the doctor and his assistant Igor with the monster not appearing until the end of the film. This is the second time the film has been pushed. It was originally skedded for January. Enough said.
