Though the film may have blinked when 'Star Wars: Episode 7' took its release date, Duncan Jones' 'Warcraft' has at least one leg up over the new 'Star Wars' film: It actually has a cast. Ben Foster, Paula Patton, Dominic Cooper, Travis Fimmel, Toby Kebbel, and Rob Kazinsky have all signed on for the film.
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). But now that 'Episode 7' has picked the same weekend, 'Warcraft' blinked and has moved to March 11, 2016.
Over the weekend, director Duncan Jones paid a visit to BlizzCon 2013 and revealed some concept art from his upcoming 'Warcraft' film to a room full of players and fans. The director also divulged a few details about the plot and casting of this ambitious project, based on the popular online roleplaying game. We've been curious to see even just one bit of artwork -- or anything -- to give us an idea as to how Jones is approaching the world of 'Warcraft,' and this sneak peek is quite satisfying.
With 'Warcraft' slowly but surely coming together for a Winter 2015 release, it's good to hear that one of the four leads has been cast, and that the Duncan Jones-helmed film is going with an outside-the-box choice. Travis Fimmel, who's best known for the History Channel series 'Vikings,' is in talks to play the lead.
'Warcraft' is looking to join the fray of 2015's big movies, and has announced a release date of December 18, 2015.That's a bold move as 'Star Wars: Episode 7' has yet to announce their release date yet, but word was that the film was eying a December launch. Might there be a release date war for December 2015 already?
During Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures' panel presentation at Comic-Con 2013, the studios snuck in the debut of the first test footage for ‘Warcraft’ from director Duncan Jones.
