Legendary CEO explains Warcraft’s move to 2016

Film will spend nearly 2 years in post-production

With Star Wars: Episode VIIand Warcraft having been on a December 2015 collision course, it shouldn’t have come as much surprise to see Duncan Jones’ forthcoming fantasy actioner moved back to a 2016 release date.

With filming set to finish in the coming weeks, that will mean Warcraft sitting in post-production for the best part of two years, although according to Legendary CEO Thomas Tull, all of that time will be well spent…

“Part of it is getting the date right,” admits Tull. “As you may have noticed, these next two years, there’s pretty big titles coming out. We wanted to make sure that we got that right.”

“But there are some sequences and some things that Duncan Jones has done that are truly on the cutting edge,” he continues. “You want to have plenty of time to make sure that we dial those in.”

“So by the time they get home and set up, it’ll be a little less than two years. It’ll be about 20 months but we really want to take our time and get this right, because the technology that’s employed really is some next generation stuff.”

Which, for a CGI-heavy movie on this kind of scale, is probably fair enough. Directed by Jones and co-starring Dominic Cooper, Ben Foster and Paula Patton, Warcraft will open in the UK on 11 March 2016.
