Studios stake holiday dates

Sked shifts include pix 'Evan Almighty,' 'Charlotte's Web'

Sony, Universal and the Weinstein Co. are staking their claim on the holidays, all setting big movies to open in December.

Sony is claiming Dec. 8 for Nancy Meyers-helmed comedy “The Holiday.” It’s currently the only pic on that date.

Weinstein Co. will open David Zucker-helmed spoof “Superhero!” in December as well, though a date hasn’t yet been set. Pic was just fast-tracked into production.
