WarCraft Movie Date Pushed Back, Will be in 3D

by - 10 years ago


Legendary Pictures announced today that they are moving back the Warcraft movie release date from Dec. 18, 2015 to March 11, 2016.

No comment was really given about the move to the new date, but the fact that the old date fell at the same time Star Wars Episode 7 was releasing is apparent they did not want to compete for that same weekend. As much as I love Warcraft and want to see the Warcraft movie, even I would have been conflicted to which one I would watch first (honestly, Star Wars would win out).

This move was orchestrated by Universal Pictures which recently partnered with Legendary back in July of this year.

It does not appear the change of release date will change the time frame when filming is supposed to begin a few short months from now.

UPDATE: The official press release can be found here.

Of interesting note, WarCraft will be available in 3D.


Legendary Pictures’WARCRAFT, a 3D epic adventure of world-colliding conflict based upon Blizzard Entertainment’s globally-renowned universe, will be directed by Duncan Jones (MoonSource Code) and is written by Charles Leavitt and rewritten by Duncan Jones.  The producers are Charles Roven, Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni and Alex Gartner.  Stuart Fenegan, Jillian Share and Brent O’Connor will serve as executive producers.  Blizzard’s Chris Metzen will co-produce.

    Is that Dalaran?

    It only seems right to be doing it in 3D. It was mentioned at BlizzCon but never really confirmed till now

    In my view by the time the movie comes out Warcraft will be limp as a franchise. They have allready missed the window of opportunity by at least five years. If they had made a computer animated series of movies it would have had an audience.
    Having said that I hope I am wrong.
