'Pan' Gets New October 2015 Release Date

20 April 2015 6:48 PM, PDT

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."

Veronika Kwan Vandenberg added her own statement.

'Ant-Man' Gets Ant-Sized Billboards

20 April 2015 3:10 PM, PDT

In an interesting twist that follows previous promotional efforts, Marvel has decided to target it's latest adventure Ant-Man to insects and other small individual creatures. Yes, that's right! They've launched a series of 'ant-sized' billboards throughout Australia in a viral marketing campaign that is as fun as it is eye-catching. Photos of the billboards began to surface on Reddit, and as you'll see, they are definitely not meant for the average sized superhero.

It is not yet known if Marvel plans to erect these billboards in the states. As you can see in the images, they are pretty firmly attached to their surfaces areas. But that has not stopped some Australian residents from plotting their theft. Maybe this is a professional job for Scott Lang? Anyway, the billboards reveal nothing new about the movie, and only show the already released logo. The idea of Ant-Man is a tough sell, but »
