Warcraft Movie Delayed

November 28, 2013 9
According to Universal and Legendary pictures, the upcoming Warcraft movie is delayed into 2016. The movie based on Blizzard's flagship franchise was originally scheduled for December 18, 2015 release, which is the same date of Star Wars: Episode VII's premiere. That's probably one of the reasons for delay. New release date is set for March 11, 2016, still a long way to go, but lets hope it will be worth the wait.

The movie is directed by Duncan Jones, most known for his work on Moon, and Source Code. Jones will base the story on orcs and humans, the movie will tell the origin tale of classic Warcraft characters Lothar and Durotan.

"One of the real difficult decisions we had was what part of the lore to focus on," Jones said, explaining that the Warcraft universe has "such a huge, vast timeline," that the goal was to get "to the root of what Warcraft is and where it came from."

It's great that they made this decision to avoid clash with Star Wars: Episode VII because it's gonna be a hard time to gain viewers. I will wait, hope they did a great job with the film.
