'300' Sequel Delayed to March, 'All You Need Is Kill' Goes to June 2014
Briefly: Updates on 2014 release dates for two movies from Warner Bros. First, since it was originally scheduled for release coming up this summer, 300: Rise of an Empire has been delayed until next year. The sequel to Zack Snyder's 300 has been pushed back from its initial August 2nd, 2013 release (up against 2 Guns) to March 7th, 2014. That actually follows the 300 release pattern, which came out March 9th, 2007 (remember that opening?). In addition, they've moved the Tom Cruise time loop sci-fi All You Need Is Kill, directed by Doug Liman, from March to June 6th, 2014 - a good spot in the early summer.
While we have yet to publicly see any trailers for 300: Rise of an Empire, directed by Noam Murro and starring Sullivan Stapleton, we do have photos and one teaser poster. Early footage shown at CinemaCon got some negative buzz, but the March 2014 release spot may be better for it anyway. As for All You Need Is Kill, this bodes well (better than March) for the high concept time loop future sci-fi starring Tom Cruise, which has one exploding mech photo so far. Releasing this movie in June will be much better if it turns out to be as good as I'm hoping. Also scheduled to hit June 6th is Jonathan Liebesman's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Wasnt to Excited for 300 I thought the first was fine by itself but maybe this will give them some time to get things in order

I have no idea what to expect from this movie - the first one was 100% Snyder, in and out. Will Murro try to replicate it?

"That actually follows the 300 release pattern, which came out March 9th, 2007 (remember that opening?)." What was special about the opening of 300?

It was the I think the 2nd or 3rd highest grossing opening ever for March. Not to mention the ridiculous buzz around it when it came out, you couldnt go 5 mins in a convo with your friends without asking "dude did you see 300?"

I remember the buzz, but didn't know it opened that huge. Thanks!

The delay makes sense. Funny how G.I. Joe: Retaliation also moved from August to March.
