Oldboy pushed back to November

Spike Lee's adaptation of Oldboy has been pushed from October 25th to November 27th. The film had already been pushed from October 11th to the 25th. There is no reasoning other than the lack of genre competition over the Thanksgiving week. Oldboy will be competing with Disney's newest animated feature Frozen and the Jason Statham flick Homefront.
Another reason they might not want to mention just yet is Spike Lee recently coming under fire for moving to Kickstarter to try and fund his next project. The studio probably figures an extra month to let people forget about it might not hurt.

Personally I don't see a reason for the move. The only competition Oldboy had was Paranormal Activity 5 and that got pushed back to January. Oh well. I don't really want to see it anyway.
