Legendary Pictures issued a press release announcing the Warcraft Movie Release Date Moved to June 10, 2016. The intended release date before this change was supposed to be March 11, 2016. This is the second time the release date has been moved. The original date was December 2015, but was changed shortly after the next Star Wars release date was announced — conflicting with Warcraft’s.
Legendary’s WARCRAFT, released in 3D by Universal Pictures, will move from March 11, 2016, to Friday, June 10, 2016.
Legendary’s WARCRAFT is a 3D epic adventure of world-colliding conflict based upon Blizzard Entertainment’s globally-renowned universe. Directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) and written by Charles Leavitt and Duncan Jones, the film is a Legendary Pictures, Blizzard Entertainment and Atlas Entertainment production. The producers are Charles Roven, Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni, Alex Gartner and Stuart Fenegan. Jillian Share, Brent O’Connor, Michael Morhaime and Paul Sams serve as executive producers. Rob Pardo, Chris Metzen, Nick Carpenter and Rebecca Steel Roven co-produce.
