Fox has decided audiences might want a big slab of ape for Thanksgiving. This, of course, is correct. Plus, besides giving every household a delicious ape for its holiday meal, IGN reports that the studio will release Rise of the Apes in theaters on November 23rd.

That’s a big shift. It was originally supposed to see a release in June. To save it from the super hero overcrowding, Fox has sent it home for the holidays. Taking its summer slot (on June 17th) is Mr. Popper’s Penquins which might do well as a family friendly film in the middle of the fanboy fare. The last shift is Now – the thriller featuring Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried – is shifting from late September to October 28th.

Apes now faces off against The Muppets (foolishly), Penguins will battle against The Green Lantern, and Now now hits theaters with Dibbuk Box.
