Warner Bros delays Pan movie to October

4 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Hugh Jackman and Levi Miller star in Pan - but you can't see the film for a few more months now...

The first big movie schedule shuffle ahead of a busy summer for blockbusters has taken place, and it's Warner Bros that's moved one of its tentpole features back.

The studio has poured no shortage of change into Joe Wright's upcoming Peter Pan prequel, Pan. The film stars Levi Miller in the title role, alongside Hugh Jackman, Rooney Mara and Garret Hedlund. And Pan had originally been scheduled to open opposite Pixels, Paper Town, Southpaw and The Vatican Diaries in the Us, on July 24th.

Warner Bros instead is going to be releasing the movie on October 9th, pushing it back two and a half months. The competition is a little lighter there, although it'll still have to contend with Danny Boyle's Steve Job biopic.

Joe Wright’s Pan Moves To October 9, 2015

6 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Giving both the film and the filmmakers some extra breathing room, Warner Bros. Pictures’ action adventure Pan has been moved from its previous July 24th opening to fall and will begin its global launch with the new domestic release date of October 9, 2015.

The announcement was made today by Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution, and Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President, International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

In making the announcement, Fellman said, “We wanted to give ‘Pan’ the space to extend its theatrical run, so taking it out of the cluttered summer season made the most sense. Moving the film to the heart of the fall will allow us more time to screen the picture, enabling us to capitalize on what we anticipate will be strong word of mouth.”

Kwan Vandenberg added, “Peter Pan is a beloved figure the world over, and the fall corridor is perfect for this epic adventure story that »

8 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Giving both the film and the filmmakers some extra breathing room, the opening date of Warner Bros. Pictures' action adventure Pan has been moved to fall and will begin its global launch with the new domestic release date of October 9, 2015. The announcement was made today by Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution, and Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President, International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures. Pan will now go up against Relativity's Kidnap and Universal's Steve Jobs on October 9. Here's what Dan Fellman had to say in a statement.

"We wanted to give Pan the space to extend its theatrical run, so taking it out of the cluttered summer season made the most sense. Moving the film to the heart of the fall will allow us more time to screen the picture, enabling us to capitalize on what we anticipate will be strong word of mouth."

Joe Wright's 'Pan' Gets Fall Release Date: Good News or Bad News?

9 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

For example, why has Warner Bros. postponed the release of Peter Pan origin tale “Pan” from the height of summer--July 24, opposite Marvel's "Ant Man," followed a week later by Paramount’s “Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation”--to a more forgiving October 9th? If they're trying to get out of the line of fire in a competitive marketplace it suggests a lack of confidence that they can compete with the big boys. “We wanted to give ‘Pan’ the space to extend its theatrical run, so taking it out of the cluttered summer season made the most sense,” WB distribution exec Dan Fellman said in Variety. In other words, this movie could use good reviews and word of mouth.  Joe Wright is not a blockbuster guy. He's a good choice to handle material with period frills and action pieces--he's a fabulous visual and actor's director often in the awards conversation, from "Atonement »

Warner Bros. Moving Joe Wright's 'Pan' Back from Summer to Fall

10 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Briefly: Perhaps it's the already crowded summer that was weighing heavily on Warner Bros. Pictures, but whatever the reason, the studio has decided to push back the release of their fantasy adaptation Pan from director Joe Wright. Originally slated for release this July, the film will now arrive on October 9th this fall. THR has a statement from Wright saying, "As you might expect, the fantastical story of Peter Pan involves very complex effects and I did not want to compromise on quality in finishing the film.  This allows me and my team the time to complete the movie and tell the story the way it should be told." Pehaps the Hugh Jackman film just wasn't getting the kind of big buzz they wanted for a summer blockbuster. »

WB Dates 3 Lego Movies and Pushes Back Joe Wright's 'Pan' to October

10 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Warner Bros. has been moving things around their release calendar. Most notably, they have three (wait, four) Lego movies on their slate (talk about wanting to cash in on a product), which have all been rearranged in their dates. First, the untitled Lego Batman movie is coming in ahead of schedule and will be released on Feb. 10, 2017. The official The Lego Movie Sequel will be brought up a week to May 18, 2018. And rounding out the trio is Lego's Ninjago, which has been delayed from fall 2016 to Sept. 22, 2017. So, if you care about Lego, mark this down. On a more current note, and more interesting to me, is the status of Joe Wright's latest film Pan. The film was originally slated to come out July 24 this summer but has been pushed back to Oct. 9. On the move, WB distribution executive Dan Fellman said: We wanted to give 'Pan' »

Pan Release Date Flies Away from Crowded Summer, Shifts to October

10 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Just a week after lifting the set visit embargo and releasing a new trailer preview, Warner Bros. is opting to shift the release of its Peter Pan re-imagining Pan from July 24th to a less-crowded October 9th. Director Joe Wright’s film—which tells the origin story of Peter Pan with Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard, Garrett Hedlund as Hook, and Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily—was poised to square off against Sony’s action-comedy Pixels, the Jake Gyllenhaal-fronted boxing drama Southpaw, and the John Green adaptation Paper Towns on its late July release date. That’s already plenty crowded, but factoring in the release of Ant-Man and Trainwreck a week before and Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation a week after made Pan’s prospects of having legs less than certain.

We don’t know quite what to make of Pan, the Peter Pan origin story that Warner Bros. will open this year. Sure, it stars Hugh Jackman and is directed by Joe Wright (Hanna, Atonement) but that first trailer was… well, it was colorful and odd, but not one of the best we’ve seen. It’s still early, […]

Here’s yet another juggle of Warner Bros’ release schedule — the third one today.

Now it will bow October 9 in theaters, including Imax.

Hugh Jackman’s ‘Pan’ Flies to the Fall to Avoid Crowded Summer Frame

10 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

With Sony’s “Pixels,” “Fox’s “Paper Towns” and the Weinstein Company’s “Southpaw” opening on July 24, Warner Bros. has decided to move Joe Wright‘s “Pan” to Oct. 9, the studio announced Monday. The move will give Wright more time to complete the action-adventure movie, which will also have more room to breathe in the marketplace. The only other films opening Oct. 9 are Universal’s “Steve Jobs” and Relativity’s Halle Berry thriller “Kidnap.” Monday’s announcement was made by Warner Bros. executives Dan Fellman, president of domestic distribution, and Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, president of international distribution.

Hugh Jackman’s ‘Pan’ Moves Back from Summer to Fall

10 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. has pushed back the release date of “Pan” to October in an effort to avoid a big crowd at the summer box office.

The Peter Pan original tale, directed by Joe Wright, will now open Oct. 9, instead of July 24. Starring Hugh Jackman and Garrett Hedlund, the 3D adventure pic was surrounded by tentpoles like Marvel’s “Ant-Man” and Paramount’s “Mission: Impossible” sequel.

“We wanted to give ‘Pan’ the space to extend its theatrical run, so taking it out of the cluttered summer season made the most sense,” WB distribution exec Dan Fellman said.

Jason Fuchs penned the new take on the classic story. Set during WWII, it follows an orphan who is kidnapped by pirates and brought to Neverland, where he discovers he’s destined to save the land from the pirate Blackbeard (Jackman).

Hedlund plays a young Hook, while Levi Miller stars as Peter Pan. The »

Joe Wright's Pan vacates its summer release date, moves to the fall

12 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

In an effort to find itself a little breathing room from the blockbusters of summer, Warner Bros. has moved Joe Wright's Pan from it's previous release of July 24, 2015 to the much more comfortable date of October 9, 2015. Had Pan opened in July it would have found itself sandwiched between Ant-man, Trainwreck, Pixels, and Mission Impossible Rogue Nation; a smart move by Warner Bros.

It’s release date shift a go-go over at Warners today. With word already arriving that the Lego movies are being juggled in terms of release date order, now comes news that Joe Wright’s Pan is being unhooked (pun entirely and shamelessly intended) from its summer date to an October release in the States. The move is, according to the studio, intended to help the movie find, and hold, an audience. “We wanted to give Pan the space to extend its theatrical run, so taking it out of the cluttered summer season made the most sense,” domestic distribution head Dan Fellman says in a statement carried by The Hollywood Reporter. “Moving the film to the heart of the fall will allow us more time to screen the picture, enabling us to capitalise on what we anticipate will be strong word of mouth.” The delay will also allow Wright the »

Joe Wright's "Pan" Delayed To Fall

14 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Warner Bros. Pictures has pushed back "Pan," their Hugh Jackman-led, Joe Wright-directed retelling of the "Peter Pan" story, by almost three months. Originally slated for a July 24th debut, the film has now been pushed to October 9th.

U.S. distribution head Dan Fellman says: "We wanted to give Pan the space to extend its theatrical run, so taking it out of the cluttered summer season made the most sense. Moving the film to the heart of the fall will allow us more time to screen the picture, enabling us to capitalize on what we anticipate will be strong word of mouth."

Director Joe Wright says the delay also gives them much needed additional time for the film's visual effects: "As you might expect, the fantastical story of Peter Pan involves very complex effects and I did not want to compromise on quality in finishing the film. This »
