    '47 Ronin' Moved Again To Christmas Day 2013; 'Kick-Ass 2,' '2 Guns' & More Get Dates

    So, if Universal initially moving "47 Ronin" from November 21st to February 8, 2013 was a sign that they lacked faith in the flick, is this next manuever an indication they now, in fact, have big plans for it? You don't hand out holiday dates to just anything, and the studio has n...
