Legendary Pictures give us Warcraft and Pacific Rim release dates

April 25th, 2015 by Dave Bowling Comments


Interesting… Legendary Pictures has just announced the release dates for upcoming films Warcraft and Pacific Rim 2.

Warcraft, naturally taking its inspiration from World of Warcraft, is described as “a 3D epic adventure of world-colliding conflict based upon Blizzard Entertainment’s globally-renowned universe.” Directed by Duncan “Zowie Bowie” Jones (sorry, Dunc) of Moon and Source Code fame and written by Jones and Charles Leavitt, the film is due out on 10 June 2016.

Of slightly more exciting news (to this writer, at least) is that the follow-up to Guilliero del Toro’s 2013 robots-punching-Godzilla-in-the-face action epic Pacific Rim has a release date. Specifically, 4 August 2017. Both films have been put back slightly from their provisional release dates, into the traditional summer blockbuster teritory.

Because there just aren’t enough giant robots fighting.

Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes. He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
