Justin Bieber joins Christmas day releases

The new Justin Bieber concert documentary, Believe, has decided to crash the Christmas day box office joining the already crammed schedule including Jack Ryan, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Grudge Match, and Ronan 47. The new Meryl Streep drama August: Osage County will also open in limited release the same day.

The Bieber film has Jon M. Chu returning to direct. This move isn't surprising as Bieber's 2011 concert film, Never Say Never, made over $100 million at the box office and brought the young fangirls to the theaters in droves. Bieber will also be releasing a new song the week prior to the film's release.

I didn't even know this little punk kid had another movie being made. When is it going to stop? I am tired of the band films. These should be direct-to-dvd releases or paired with deluxe editions of CDs. That's what they used to be.
My guess is at least one of these movies is going to be shifted on the schedule. That is way too many movies to be released on one day, especially Christmas day.
