    WAHOO! I can’t wait to see the movie.

    I read the book so I am hoping the movie is very similar to the book.

    But a shirtless Zac will make up for it if it isn’t similar.

  • Katty

    NO!!!!! I SO wanted to see this movie soon!!!

    Now, I’m sad… at least it’s right near my birthday. Maybe I can get someone to take me to it… :(

    Come on, Z! I was pulling for an earlier release, not a later one! I know he doesn’t have much say, but now I’m disappointed.

  • London Lemming

    @Katty: Do you not realise how these things work? Zac has no say what so ever in when the movie is released. That is soley down to the studio in the case Universal. Who have seen sense and have decided to put the movie back so that it gets a fair run and is not outdone by Twilight which is slated for release the week after it was originally meant to be released in June!

  • gaby

    the novel was amazing. im really looking forward to the movie. blown its been pushed back though. i guess its better seeing as toy story and eclipes are coming out in june anyways.

  • Sarah!

    I MET hIM ON THE SET OF THIS MOVIE! such a nice guy so friendly took pictures with like 50 ppl each night at 2am!

  • zanessa/scashley/ashnessa

    Aw, 3 days before Zachary’s 23rd. :D That’s cool. I should read the novel, I need to find it first though. Haha. Can’t wait to see Zachary’s acting in this movie. He never fails at what he does. :D

  • Katty

    @London Lemming:

    I realize that, did you not read my post? I know it’s a smart idea, I just don’t want to wait practically a year….

  • annasaurus

    @London Lemming: This isn’t an appropriate film to release during summer blockbuster season anyway. Instead, it can compete against the Facebook movie, various Halloween movies and a crappy romcom.

    Oh God I can’t wait for this movie, and yes, I read the novel and loved it. Even if Zac had not been doing a movie on it the book was amazing.
    Everyone should read it.

  • London Lemming

    @annasaurus: I never said it was. Re-read my post.

    @Katty: I apologise I didn’t see the last part of your 1st post

  • joboots


    Perhaps it got bumped back to be a possible Oscar contender,
    who knows????

  • pop86

    I think a fall relase would be better for the film.

  • fan

    i cant wait to see this movie it looks so good

  • lilly

    No!! I want it to be released NOW!! LOL

    I’m already bummed that Me and Orson Welles didn’t play anywhere near me. I wanted to see it so badly. I read the book and was looking forward to seeing it.

    I’ve read both of Ben Sherwood’s books – Charlie St. Cloud and The Man Who Ate The 747. I liked CSC better, but they were both great. I know that Zac has done a wonderful job and can’t wait to see it.

  • annasaurus

    @joboots: If that were going to happen, they would release it in December.

  • Hillary

    @London Lemming:
    I soo agree because that the first thing that came to my mind when it said they were pushing the date back. For real people everyone knows the competion between Taylor Lautner abs vs. Zac Efron abs would have teenage girls confused as to what movie they should watch. To be honest I wouldn’t know what movie to watch because that some serious hotness going in a dark theater.

  • Amy

    thats on my birthday:) very nice birthday present

  • Rediem

    Aw, now we have to wait even longer. I was so excited that it was going to come out soon. This is exactly what happened to 17 Again, too. It was supposed to come out sometime in July 2008 but they pushed it back to April 09. Tbh, i was kinda expecting the push back since if it were to come out in June, then we’d at least have a teaser trailer.

  • Luis F. Gomez

    I cant wait to see this movie… he is a great actor, I have enjoyed all of his movies by far… Im sure this one wont be the exception… greetings from Guatemala!!

  • craz

    Yes I’ll see it!!

  • Karen

    I am disappointed in having to wait longer but it is only 3 extra months and I’m all for it being released at a time when it has the best shot to be postively received. I also want to know, like 17 Again, that it will be a wide release and not like MAOW in a limited one. MAOW was such a good movie and was well received by critic. It had a wonderful cast and it is a shame that more people couldn’t have seen just how good Zac was and the wonders of Christian McKay.

  • Katty

    I never thought about the awards effect. If it is released later in the year, and is very good, as it should be, it could be a contender for the Oscars/Globes. Smart thinking. I SO hope he gets at least some noms, he deserves it. I can’t want for his new movies.

    For that Agorithm one, I looked it up on and I have to say, just from the description of the word, I can tell it will be a good movie, especially if it will be a Back to the Future-like movie. I am so excited.

  • Nicki

    This better be right this time. I hate that they changed the date for some stupid Twilight film >>
    Well I hope we at least get a preview for the film soon.

  • sunny

    YEAH YOU BET I GO !!!!! ;D

  • Tiptoes

    I don’t mind waiting as its a better release date and a wider one too.

    There is enough time to do a really good promotion plus the supernatural theme coincides with the October Halloween theme.

    I remember HSM3 was also released during this month so its all good.

  • Jihaine

    NOO ! waitingg until october 15 is too long :( but i dont have the choice , i didnt read the book , so i dont know what is the story exactlyyy ! well i’ll waittt :) cant waitt to see this movie , it will be probably one of his best movie everr :D<3

  • tina

    I am actually glad that this movie has been pushed back. It sounds like a really good movie and I am excited for Zac.

  • bhelle

    lol .. hottie… cant wait for the movie… by the way guys ,,, ,,,, it’s about zac and vanessa’s 5th anniversary .. just read what was written in it .. ^^

  • http://justjaredjr Susanna

    What’s the deal? Every project with Zac seems to invovle one big waiting game. It’s always something and, honestly, I’m getting really upset by it all. I wish you all the best, Zac, but come on already.

  • tena

    That is great news, i can’t wait to see this and i hope it is zac’s big break :)


    I also read there going to release A-TEAM, the action movie at the same time in June, so I think they are very wise to change dates to get a better audience, at lease the studio is looking out for there movie, not like summit who does not promote other movies very well, except for twlight, which are just ok movie. I have a feeling Charlie


    I also read that A-TEAM the action movie is coming out in June also, i think the studio did the right thing to move Zac’s movie, at lease there looking out for Charlie ST Cloud. I’m dispointed also, but I think Zac’s movie will do better in Oct. I beleive Zac is going to get crtical acclaim, for his part and he will do well. Frankly i’m getting board of the Twlight movies, there just ok.

  • jj

    OMG thats one day after my b’day what a great b’day present for me

  • Ashley

    I’m glad October is a better month for this movie. It is a ghost movie that’s a drama- romance. A lot of women who don’t want to see the Halloween slashers will go see it so it’s a better date.

  • birdie

    Even though I’m anxious to see this, I’m sure the studio knows when
    the time is best for release. It’s always a gamble as to wether a film
    succeeds or fails, but with Zac as the star and the storyline it sounds like a winner.

  • amy

    i’ll go see it whatever the date, but i hope it wasn’t pushed back because of fricking twilight. The whole stupid franchise is so overrated nowadays!

  • Alex

    i wanted to see this in the summer.. not near the end of the year D:
    damn you deadline hollywood for ruining my day -_-

  • susan1

    I can’t wait to see this movie, it pushed back to October well doesn’t matter to me and the studio knows when the best month to release for this movie.
    i’m so excited for Zac.I wish you all the best.

  • http://none Elle

    First off the book was absolutely amazing. It made me laugh, it made me cry and made me love. When i heard that Zac would be in this movie about almost a year ago i was freaking out. This is exactly the type of movie to take him away from his High School Musical days. To be honest i read the book only because Zac was going to be in a movie of it and i wanted to already have read the book before i went to see the movie. What a mistake, the book is amazing and i can’t believe i never read it before. I am so excited for this move. And anything that Zac is in is worth waiting for ;)

    Also it was a smart choice to be taken back to October because if they kept it at June the move would be eaten alive. As much i as i love Zac it wouldn’t be popular due to other summer movies coming out Zac would have just gotten beat out. I can’t for this movie and i wish Zac all the best, its obvious he worked very hard on this move and his co-stars.

  • mrsefron.

    Nooooo I wanted tooo see it in June so I can seee him when the weathers nice in new York. Boooooooo!!!!

    Hoping this will change


    Loove Zac, now I’m thinking to read the book.

  • Nikki

    AWW! I wanted it to come out earlier :(

    But I’m sure the longer wait will make the movie eve better! I read the novel, and I think the movie’s going to be one of Zac’s BIG hits.

  • tammi

    i read the book , and i want to see this movie .. now . i loved this book . An i am german , so in germany its coming in January or February next year .. so sad

  • lilli

    i think it’ll be a good movie,but nothing for his teenage now he finally got a real chance to becoem a serious actor … !

  • kitten

    I am very upset that the date has been pushed back. If this does have something to do with Twilght, Then I severly Universal pictures should do an evaluation of their staff of thier staff, because a movie just doesn’t make it or break it because of the teenage girls and boys who can’t decide who they want to see half naked. There are adults in this world who like to see good movies and great actors, and robert pattinson isn’t one of them.
