And actress who was in the most successful film of all time, amongst others.

They were filming in Venice just when I visited for a weekend last autumn (the only couple of days in 2020 that I left the city). I only learnt about it when it was announced that they had to shut down temporarily due to COVID concerns.

Ugh, I saw the Top Gun thread first and thought "but May 27th is when M:I 7 is due out...this doesn't bode well".....aaaaand here we are.

Just a grammatical question... as i have seen this structure several times lately with everchanging releases of films.

 

"Studio moves film release date BACK from May to September."

 

Shouldn't it be "Studio moves film release date FORTH from May to September."

 

As the date is not earlier but later...

Ah ok.

 

I supose they are “pushing back” the date so it goes further away in front of you, not behind you in figurative speech.

But if "pushing back" means moving to a later date, shouldn't "spring forward, fall back" mean that you set the clocks to a later time in autumn? I guess temporal grammar is messed up in every language.

I guess it's the difference between "push back" and "pull back", which are both used in English at different times

Could it have something to do with the direction you would move the hands of a clock?

Or it's just the general confusion when talking about relative times. In, people from different regions can't even agree on how to say the time of day. 5:15 may be "quarter six", or "quarter past five", or even "quarter over five" (no article though, curiously), and I believe in other regions "quarter six" can also mean 5:45. Explaining to someone else in which direction the clock should be changed on DST changes is more difficult than actually remembering it yourself.

If you took out all the Schifrin mutilations and synth-soundalike cello stuff and cut the whole thing down to about 5 minutes, you might be able to condense it into a somewhat decent brief percussion cue.

I visited home recently (Birmingham, UK) and they were filming this in the major railway station there when I was getting my train back.
