‘Amos’ bow now March 5

Castle Rock Entertainment rescheduled the Nicolas Cage/Samuel L. Jackson starrer “Amos & Andrew” yesterday, moving the picture from a planned Feb. 26 opening to March 5.

Martin Shafer, Castle Rock partner in charge of motion pictures, said the last-minute decision was made to move the picture away from a pair of comedies–Columbia Pictures’ “Groundhog Day” and New Line Cinema’s “National Lampoon’s Loaded Weapon I.”

“Amos & Andrew” was postponed after a screening to exhibitors yesterday morning.

Columbia Pictures distribution president Jeffrey Blake advised that the movie be moved back one week, according to Shafer.

On Feb. 26, the movie was skedded to open head-to-head against the Warner Bros. release “Falling Down,” which stars Michael Douglas. On March 5, the pic will open against such titles as “Mad Dog and Glory,””Rich in Love” and “Best of the Best II.”
