    So you are surprised?

    I kind of am TBH. March 11 2016 is like.. not even on the horizon. Seriously, it's so far away, why even have a release date at all? Might as well call it "cancelled" at this point. :/ *sadface*

    march 11???? Thats just a horrible month for this type of movie. It definitely needs a may/june/july release if not in December. Its all disney's fault

    Brilliant. It was already 5 or so years too late.

    Sounds pretty stupid to me, why would anyone go watch a movie based on when it's released rather than what it's about?

    You would be suprised. I agree, with the previous post. March probably won't be a good time for this release.

    Sucks. December has become the month for epic fantasy movies, after each movie of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogies was released in December.

    Shame the same date was chosen for SW VII. Smart to move it away, but March certainly is not the month for a movie like Warcraft.

    Makes sense to not compete with Star Wars. I wonder if Star Wars will still be in Cinema after four Months, though ^^

    It was scheduled to open at roughly the same time as the Star Wars movie. This is a smart move.

    Let me know when it actually starts principal shooting. Until then this is a "pie in the sky" movie stuck in "development hell".

    Kinda sad, since I was actually looking forward to it.

    They should skip the theatrical release and go straight to online distribution. Then they don't have to worry about distribution fees and rights. Pretty much anyone who would be interested in this movie should have a good enough internet connection to stream it, or probably will by 2016. I just don't see this movie performing well in theaters and the way they keep delaying it WoW will be irrelevant by the time it is released.

    Well it doesn't suprise me about the changed date. the bastards at Disney decided upon competing with Warcraft for the same day, so it was only time until one of them moved the release date. If production has been delayed, that's ok, just as long as it will come out on time. The only current competition (on wikipedia) is a Disney film due out a week before Warcraft. Universal will have to step up with marketing and distribution.

    Nothing suprising. Still sad tho.

    This movie has been in planning since the beginning of time. Universal and Legendary must be putting it on the backburner in favor of filming other movies. Which in lame terms means: it's never coming out.

    Because that's how the movie business works... Winter & Summer = Biggest income. I don't expect a March 2016 release, especially considering the movie isn't even in full production

    Legendary are more interested in new Godzilla movie
