Joe Wright’s Pan Takes Flight; Moves From Summer To Fall

21 April 2015 7:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Moviegoers will venture to all kinds of exotic locales this summer, from Jurassic World to the post-apocalyptic Australian Outback, but Neverland is no longer on the itinerary. Just four days after unveiling a new trailer, Warner Bros. has announced that it’s shifting Peter Pan origin tale Pan from the competitive summer season to the fall.

The pic, which stars newcomer Levi Miller as the eponymous Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up, was originally set to open July 24th but is now set for October 9th.

Warner Bros. cited the busy summer slate as one reason for the move. Out of all the major studios vying for box office dominance between May and August, Warners will be the most prolific, opening huge titles throughout the summer including Hot Pursuit, Mad Max: Fury Road, San Andreas, Entourage, Max, Magic Mike Xxl, The Gallows, Vacation, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and Me Before You. »

Warner Bros. Pushes Back 'Pan' For A Fall Release

21 April 2015 6:02 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Warner Bros. Pictures have announced that they have moved director Joe Wright’s action-adventure Pan from a summer July 24th release date to fall October 9th 2015. The press release was announced by President of Domestic Distribution, Dan Fellman, and President of International Distribution, Veronika Kwan Vanderberg.

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 Vanderberg stated:

“Peter Pan is a beloved figure the world over, and the fall corridor is perfect for this epic adventure story that explores the origins of this young hero. In many markets we can take advantage of school holidays that ensure a greater »

'Pan' Gets New October 2015 Release Date

20 April 2015 6:48 PM, PDT | 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?

20 April 2015 5:05 PM, PDT | 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 »

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

20 April 2015 4:49 PM, PDT | 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

20 April 2015 4:42 PM, PDT | 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.

Warners Sets Three Lego Movie Dates

20 April 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Warner Bros. Pictures has unveiled its plans for its Lego movie slate with several key release date announcements.

First up the currently untitled "Lego Batman Movie" is targeting a February 10th 2017 release date, the same early February weekend that "The Lego Movie" had such success in last year.

Later in 2017, the Lego "Ninjago" movie is scheduled for a September 22nd release - a push back of almost a year from the rough Fall 2016 release date that was previously being targeted.

Then, the official "The Lego Movie Sequel" has been moved up a week and is now slated to open May 18th 2018.

U.S. Warner Bros. Pictures domestic distribution president Dan Fellman says: "These three films already in the pipeline are just the beginning of a creative and diverse animation slate that will be delighting audiences for years to come."

No word on who will direct any of these three films at this present time. »

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

20 April 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | 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

20 April 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | 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 »

Russell Crowe Looks to Directing, for Himself and for Australia

20 April 2015 2:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Russell Crowe’s “The Water Diviner” might be seen as just another film struggling to get a look from American audiences during a spring movie season dominated by the latest installments in the “Avengers” and “Furious” franchises.

But for the film community Down Under, and especially first-time director Crowe, the war epic amounts to something much larger – another chance for Australia to reassert itself as a maker of mass-appeal films and for the actor to shift from leading man to the man leading production.

Crowe did not try to downplay the stakes — or his ambition, at age 51, to shift at least a portion of his career to behind the camera — in an interview before the film’s American premiere last week.

“That’s the gamble, man. It’s three years of my life. And that’s what’s on the line,” he said outside the Tcl Chinese Theater. “The two »

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

20 April 2015 2:18 PM, PDT | 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.
