‘Pirates 5’ Delayed, ‘Jurassic Park 4’ Titled and Dated and ‘Ant-Man’ Moved Up


Pirates of the Caribbean 5 director shortlistThere’s been a lot of interesting release date movement over the past 24 hours. To begin, Disney has delayed the release of Pirates of the Caribbean 5 (aka Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) from July 10, 2015 to an undetermined date, which many are assuming means it will be moved to 2016. The reason? Apparently Jeff Nathanson‘s screenplay “was too expensive but it was also really complicated and hard to follow.” Ha, that’s funny.

The news comes a day after Disney and Marvel announced they were moving Edgar Wright‘s Ant-Man from a November 2015 release to July 31, 2015, two weeks after Warner Bros. releases Man of Steel 2 or Batman vs. Superman as most have come to know it.

Finally, Universal previously set Jurassic Park IV for a June 2014 release, but halted production back in May making sure fans knew the film would still be released with Safety Not Guaranteed helmer Colin Trevorrow still on board as they wanted to take additional time to deliver “the best possible version of the fourth installment in Universal’s beloved franchise”. Or so they say.

Today Universal announced the fourth film will now be titled Jurassic World and will hit theaters on June 12, 2015, two weeks before Warner’s Terminator 5.
