There's a short item in the Houston Chronicle about some celebrity sightings during the recent reshoot and new scene filming in Houston. And there was this line:
[Billy Bob] Thornton was in town for a quickie scene reshoot at the Astrodome for Friday Night Lights, which is scheduled to open in movie theaters Oct. 8.
Originally, the opening date was said to be October 15. So, either the author of the Chronicle article was misinformed or there's a new opening date.
And, here's a link to a Friday Night Lights trailer. Apparently, the trailers are being run on tv in Houston during the Olympics.
[Thanks to a Houston FNL extra for the pointer!]
