Sony Pictures Pushes Animated POPEYE 3D Movie To 2015

No specific release date has been set yet, but Sony Animation has apparently moved its upcoming 3D big screen adaptation Popeye (which will be directed by Genndy Tartakovsky) from its September 2014 slot to the year 2015.



According to Box Office Mojo, Sony Pictures has pushed back its animated Popeye movie (which sees the iconic sailor man make his triumphant return to the big screen, complete with 3D). Originally set for a September 26th, 2014 release date, the adaptation will now hit theaters in an already crowded 2015. No specific date has been announced yet, but 2015 has plenty of competition in the form of The Avengers 2, Pirates Of The Caribbean 5, Star Wars: Episode VII, Finding Dory, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, and many more big films. Popeye will be directed by Genndy Tartakovsky (who most recently helmed Hotel Transylvania for Sony Animation). Screenwriters Jay Scherick and David Ronn (The Smurfs) were hired to pen the script last year. Are you looking forward to this movie?
