When Disney announced Star Wars Episode VII for December 18th 2015 we all knew one thing: Universal was going to get Warcract the fuck off that date. Duncan Jones' movie based on the popular video game universe had already staked a claim to the middle of December, but there's no point in going against the new Star Wars movie. That's suicide.
Warcraft will now open on March 11, 2016. There's not much competition in March just yet, and that feels like an interesting spot to open a movie as big as Warcraft hopes to be. And now Star Wars has that weekend all to itself.
