Warner Bros. must have thought it would hit lucky nabbing a December 18th, 2015 release date for its upcoming Warcraft adaptation, slipping in nicely to the Holiday Fantasy slot currently occupied by Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy... until Lucasfilm announced that J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII would arrive that very same day.
So, facing competition from what is sure to be one of - if not the - biggest earners in a year packed with potential billion dollar blockbusters such as The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Batman vs. Superman, Jurassic World, Bond 24 and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, WB has wisely decided to push back the release of Warcraft, with the film now set to arrive on March 11th 2016.
