Few movie studios have a legacy as clearly defined by horror movies as Universal, who made their name in the early days of cinema with films like 'Dracula,' 'Frankenstein,' 'The Wolfman' and 'The Mummy.'

Duncan Jones' 'Warcraft' was originally scheduled for release on December 18, 2015, which it called before 'Star Wars: Episode 7' announced when it would be hitting theaters (many thought the new 'Star Wars' would go with mid-May as with all the previous films).

It has been a little while since any movement on 'The Mummy' reboot/remake made headlines. The last we heard anything about it was in September, when director Len Wiseman boarded the project, which already had 'Prometheus' scribe Jon Spaihts writing it.
