Warner Bros. Pictures has announced a change of release dates for two of its most-anticipated event films: All You Need is Kill, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures, and 300: Rise of an Empire, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures. The announcement was made today by Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution, and Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President of International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

All You Need is Kill has been moved to the Summer release corridor, opening on June 6, 2014, with select international markets predating the domestic release, starting the weekend of May 30, 2014. The earlier international release date was specifically chosen to put the opening two weeks ahead of the start of the World Cup. The move reflects the studio's already strong belief in the huge science fiction actioner, which marks the first collaboration between two proven hit-makers, Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman.

The release date of 300: Rise of an Empire, a new chapter in the epic "300" saga, has moved to March 7, 2014, with international territories opening day-and-date, reflecting the global popularity of the franchise. The first 300, which was released in March 2007, went on to earn more than $456 million worldwide.

Fellman stated, "We have tremendous confidence in 'All You Need is Kill' and view it as a perfect tent pole for the Summer frame, with its combination of great cast, compelling story and tremendous action."

Fellman also noted, "Moving '300: Rise of an Empire' to March 7 continues in the tradition of the first '300,' and kicks off the Spring movie-going season in epic style. The film is on track to become all that audiences have come to expect from the franchise."

Kwan Vandenberg said, "We are thrilled about 'All You Need is Kill' heating up our Summer '14 slate. It is an action-packed adventure, told by an extraordinary cast, which is sure to have global appeal.

"We are also excited about the continuation of the '300' saga," Kwan Vandenberg added. "The first '300' movie was a huge success internationally, and the day-and-date release of the new film is a great opportunity to turn its opening into a worldwide event."
