Warner Bros. Shifts 'Ready Player One' Away from 'Star Wars: Episode VIII'

9 February 2016 12:34 PM, PST

Warner Bros. has adjusted their release schedule following Disney's decision a few weeks ago to move Star Wars: Episode VIII from May 26, 2017 to December 15, 2017. The move put the next episode in the Star Wars saga directly opposite Steven Spielberg's adaptation of Ernest Cline's Ready Player One, which left WB no choice but to search for a new date. As it turns out, they decided March 2018 would pretty much be all theirs. Ready Player One is now set for a March 30, 2018 release date where it will currently face off against one of Universal's upcoming Monster Universe films, believed to be the new incarnation of The Wolf Man. The studio previously had what they're referring to as an Untitled DC Film (though largely believed to be The Flash) set for a March 23 release, but with the decision to move Ready Player One into the same month they've moved The Flash forward »
