Kick-Ass 2 and The Hobbit 2 both pushed back

Well this is sad news.

Kick-Ass 2 and The Hobbit: There and Back Again have had their release dates pushed back. Kick-Ass was originally slated for June 28, 2013 and will now be released on August 16, 2013. The Hobbit's original release was set to be July 18, 2014 but it will now be released on December 17, 2014.
The moves seem to be all about competition. It appears they didn't want The Hobbit in direct competition with X-Men: Days of Future Past and Guardians of the Galaxy so they moved it. However there are three big name movies that are set for December 2014 like Tomorrowland, the new Annie remake, Night at the Museum 3, and Minions.
The shift of Kick-Ass 2 now puts it on the same weekend as Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and The To-Do List. Previously it was set to compete against The Heat and White House Down.

Personally, I am sick of all these release date shifts. I already got shit on by Hollywood when they moved Carrie and The Great Gatsby.
