Sony Pictures has just revealed via¬†that their live-action/animated comedy The Smurfs has been bumped¬†up a few days, now opening on July 29th instead of on August 3rd. The old release date would’ve placed it against this summer’s Planet of the Apes reboot Rise of the Apes. Instead, it will now face of against perhaps an even more anticipated film, the sci-fi western Cowboys & Aliens.
