Sony has moved the release date of GHOST RIDER, starring Nicolas Cage, to February 16, 2007. Originally, it was supposed to be released on July 14, 2006.
The new date still allows some space between RIDER and SPIDER-MAN 3, which will be released three months later in May. In addition, RIDER no longer has to open so close to SUPERMAN RETURNS, which opens on June 30, 2006.
The biggest headache is for Marvel Studios, who must change their plans for ancillary tie-in deals.
