LOS ANGELES: Hugh Jackman-starrer “Pan”, the retelling of fictional character Peter Pan, will now release on October 9 instead of July 24.

“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,” said Warner Bros’ domestic distribution head Dan Fellman, reports hollywoodreporter.com.

“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,” he added.

Warner Bros has the most movies opening this summer including “Mad Max: Fury Road” (May 15), “San Andreas” (May 29), “Entourage” (June 5), “Max” (June 26), “Magic Mike XL” (July 1), “The Gallows” (July 10) and “Vacation” (July 31).

“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," said director Joe Wright.

The movie also stars Levi Miller, Rooney Mara, Garrett Hedlund and Amanda Seyfried.
