"Noah" finally gets its Philippine release date; "Transformers: Age of Extinction" Philippine release also announced

After being delayed due to legal problems concerning with the operation of United International Pictures Philippines, "Noah" finally gets a Philippine release date. "Noah" will finally dock in the Philippines June 11, 2014. "Transformers: Age of Extinction" also gets its Philippine release date set on June 25, 2014, just in time with its Southeast Asian release on the same date. (It will open in U.S. cinemas June 27). Last march we reported that United International Pictures Philippines had been suspended from distributing their films after it allegedly violated an agreement with Solar Entertainment Corp., its local partner in the release of the movies. Solar claimed that UIP violated its 2012 agreement when it named Columbia Pictures as its new film distributor in the Philippines. That put "Noah"'s Philippine release to a grueling delay (it was released internationally last March), and also put the release date of the new Transformers movie in peril.

But the official facebook page of Columbia Pictures Philippines has now hit the news feeds with the two movies' release dates; "Noah" which seems to grab on to a Independence Day holiday week, to cash on to its box office potential, and Transformers 4 catching up to what its original release date was scheduled to be.
