‘Warcraft’ Scores Winter 2015 Release

In the immortal words of House Stark, “Winter is coming.” But we’re not talking about Westeros — we’re talking Warcraft.

Moon and Source Code director Duncan Jones’ adaptation of Blizzard Entertainment’s Warcraft video game series has landed a release date: Dec. 18, 2015, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The date slots Warcraft into one of the most crowded blockbuster years in recent memory, following on the heels of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, the untitled Batman-infused Man of Steel sequel and more.

Indeed, it’s entirely possible that Warcraft might go head to head with another fantasy titan: Star Wars: Episode VII, the J.J. Abrams-directed sequel rumored for a December 2015 release. It’s unclear how or if the Warcraft news might impact the Star Wars release.

As of now, Warcraft — the first film produced under the new Universal Pictures/Legendary Pictures partnership — remains without a cast. However, big names like Colin Farrell, Paula Patton and Paul Dano have been kicked around in connection to Jones’ adaptation. Production is expected to begin in January.
