Par moves Rogen-Streisand pic to Christmas

Denzel Washington drama 'Flight' to Nov. 2

Paramount is bolstering its 2012 year-end holiday schedule by moving Seth Rogen-Barbra Streisand road-trip comedy “The Guilt Trip” to Christmas Day and putting Robert Zemeckis drama “Flight,” starring Denzel Washington, in its previous Nov. 2 slot.

“Flight” has been on the fast-track at Par ever since the studio came onboard last fall. Pic, about an airline pilot (Washington) who must deal with an investigation after saving a plane from crashing, marks Zemeckis’ first foray into live action since 2000’s “Cast Away.”

The film’s early November launchpad should give it plenty of lead time into the Thanksgiving holiday as an adult counterprogrammer.

But moving “Guilt Trip” to Christmas means Par will have to brace for a busy holiday: The studio has two other pics dated for Dec. 21 — Tom Cruise actioner “One Shot” and “Cirque du Soleil: World’s Away.”

In its new date, “Flight” goes up against Disney toon “Wreck-It Ralph” and Miles Teller comedy “21 and Over,” from Relativity Media.
