Time was, summer was the season of action flicks. But since the bang-‘em-ups got super-popular, they’ve crowded into the fall, too. Witness the imminent return of Bond in Goldeneye, Wesley and Woody’s Money Train, and Johnny Depp’s Nick of Time. Well, the menu just lost two beefy entrees. Fox unceremoniously pushed John Woo’s $50 million Broken Arrow to March 1, and Paramount has decided to move its vintage-TV spin-off and Tom Cruise vehicle, Mission: Impossible, to June. Arrow, which has John Travolta playing a high-flying villain, is being held up due to special F/X futzing and a holiday season packed with big titles. ”There are too many movies going after the same audience, so why take the chance?” says Fox exec Tom Sherak. ”It’s a 52-week business.” At least that’s the thinking this week.
