We mention on this week’s ‘Hollywood Booze’ podcast (online tomorrow) about the planned release of the Duncan Jones directed Warcraft, and the fact that it shared the date with a certain movie named Star Wars Episode VII. Well, it looks like Universal and Legendary Pictures have seen the light and moved the domestic release date from the 18th December, 2015 to 11th March, 2016. Warcraft is a massive movie for the studio and in line with the themes it shares with Star Wars, a move was inevitable.
It’s not just Warcraft that Legendary are moving either. The studio, which departed from Warner Brothers earlier this year, are also moving the Jeff Bridges starrer The Seventh Son to the 6th February, 2014 and the update of The Mummy to the 22nd April, 2016. Andy Muschietti (Mama) is directing the film and Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci (Star Trek) are producing with Sean Daniel. Jon Spaihts wrote the script. »

Movie release dates aren’t exactly like a bus schedule; they’re more like a perpetual game of musical chairs, in which movies both big and small frequently shuffle around to make room for one another and try to nab the good spots before the competition gets to them.
We were so very close to watching Seventh Son, the new fantasy adventure based on the novels by Joseph Delaney, which stars Jeff Bridges and Ben Barnes. After first being scheduled for release in February 2013, Seventh Son was pushed back to October 2013, then delayed once more with a release date set for January 17th, 2014.

When Disney announced they were sending Star Wars: Episode VII to theaters on December 18th. 2015, many wondered when Universal was going to move Legendary's adaptation of Warcraft to get out of the way of the sci-fi giant. Now the studio has made the right call and will release the film on March 11th, 2016 instead. That's a smart move, not only because there's not really anything schedule for 2016 other than a Marvel movie, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and some other blockbusters, but this pretty much guarantees the film will dominate in the spring slot. In addition, the studio also announced release dates for some other upcoming projects, in addition to a new release date for the delayed fantasy The Seventh Son. After originally being dated for release this past February, Warner Bros. delayed the Legendary Entertainment production of The Seventh Son, an adaptation of The Last Apprentice (or The Wardstone Chronicles) book series by Joseph Delaney, »

With Legendary joining Universal as a new partner in July, the two have already moved around release dates for upcoming projects, including pushing “Seventh Son” from 2014 to 2015 and “Warcraft” out of 2015 to March 11, 2016.
“Seventh Son,” starring Jeff Bridges, was set to open on Jan. 17, 2014 but will now open on Feb. 6, 2015. The move is interesting given that Universal is already opening “Fifty Shades of Grey” on Valentines Day 2015, but given that “Seventh Son” plays to boys, the move comes off as good counter-programing.
This marks the second time Legendary has moved “Seventh Son,” which was supposed to open this October before Legendary moved it a year later to January.
“Warcraft” was expected to open on Dec. 18, 2015 but now that the new “Star Wars” is opening on the same day, it made sense to get out of the way of the behemoth that is expected to be one of 2015′s biggest releases. »

Source Code director Duncan Jones’ Warcraft video game adaptation is far enough along to have gained a leading man - Vikings star Travis Fimmel - and a list of potential leads, which include Colin Farrell and Paula Patton. We also know that screenwriter Charles Leavitt (Seventh Son) is basing the film’s storyline on the first two real-time strategy Warcraft games, Orcs & Humans and Tides of Darkness. The film is set to begin production in January 2014 for a release in December 2015.
For such a relatively high-stakes potential blockbuster, we know quite a lot about Warcraft – as opposed to the secrecy surrounding similarly high-profile 2015 projects such as Batman Vs. Superman and Star Wars: Episode VII. Now, we have more information about Warcraft coming out of the just-wrapped BlizzCon 2013: some new ...
