“Our film, luckily after a ridiculous amount of work, is testing extremely well,” Miller said. ”We’re very happy. There has been a lot of doubt about it, [people saying] ‘it took so long’, but Warners have delayed it until 2015 to go into the top weekend of the year.”
The site also reports that Warner Bros. pushed the film to 2015 so as not to compete against the “World Cup” in 2014 in international markets.
