No reason for the scheduling shift was given.

Had the film stuck with its original release date, it would have faced the animated film "Hotel Transylvania," the Bruce Willis/Joseph Gordon-Levitt thriller "Looper," and "Won't Back Down," a drama starring Maggie Gyllenhaal.

With its new release date, "Trouble With the Curve" will compete with the Jake Gyllenhaal crime drama "End of Watch" and the Jennifer Lawrence film "House at the End of the Street."
