Fans of the hit HBO series “Entourage” have a reason to celebrate this weekend, as its recently been announced that Warner Bros. has decided to advance the release date for the series’ spawned feature film by one week, according to a new report from Deadline.
Originally scheduled to release on June 12th, 2015, the new release date of June 5th is likely due to the fact that Universal’s summer blockbuster of the year, Colin Trevorrow’s anticipated sequel Jurassic World, is also scheduled for release on the 12th. Moving up the release date of Entourage will help effectively avoid the likely beating it would take at the box office due to the presence of the fourth Jurassic Park film finally hitting theaters after nearly 13 years in development.
For those who didn’t catch the show during its original run between 2004-2011, “Entourage” chronicled the Hollywood career of movie star Vincent Chase (played by Adrian Grenier) and the friends and pros he has around him. These include his best friend and manager, his half-brother/chef/bodyguard, an old friend from childhood, and an irascible yet somehow likable agent. The series went on to earn a large amount of critical acclaim, garnering 26 Primetime Emmy nominations in both performance and production categories. Jeremy Piven, who plays Vincent’s agent Ari Gold, was nominated four consecutive times for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, having won three of those times (in 2007-09).
The film takes place six months after the conclusion of the series, and follows their latest escapades. It’ll be directed by series creator Doug Ellin from a screenplay by Ellin and regular series writer and producer Rob Weiss, and will now bow in theaters on June 5th, 2015.
