‘300: Rise of an Empire’ Delayed Seven Months; Tom Cruise Will ‘Kill’ Next Summer Instead

Written by on May 9, 2013 

Well, the writing was on the wall for this one. Originally set for a release this August, 300: Rise of an Empire was one of the few summer films we had yet to see in action in any capacity. In a move that should surprise no one, Warner Bros. has now delayed Smart People director Noam Murro‘s spin-off seven months.

According to THR, the film will now land on March 7th, 2014, a familiar territory, considering Zack Snyder‘s original 2007 film was a major hit in the same timeframe. This isn’t the first time an extended delay has occurred with one of the company’s tentpoles, as last year, Bryan Singer‘s Jack the Giant Slayer was lifted from its summer slot and set in the same month where the new 300 is headed.

With that March 7th slot full, WB is putting some faith into Doug Liman‘s sci-fi actioner All You Need is Kill, shifting the Tom Cruise-led film to a prime date of June 6th, 2014. Co-starring Emily Blunt, the film now fills in the spot that 21 Jump Street 2 vacatated when it recently moved up a week to June 13th, 2014…where the delayed Jurassic Park 4 was once at. Got all that? Well, even if you didn’t, you have many, many months before you have to remember.

What do you think of the delay for 300? Does it change your anticipation for the film?
