Apollo 18 was originally scheduled for a March 4 release, but the Weinstein Co. pushed the release back to April 22 shortly before the movie finished production on Jan. 13.

The Weinstein Company has pushed back the release date to April 22, more than six weeks later than originally planned. It's possible the movie may be pushed again since the April 22 date is just a week after the Weinstein Company releases Scream 4.
