Universal pushes 'Warcraft' and 'Pacific Rim 2' back into summer season

Universal has been rearranging its release dates for 2016-7, with Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim 2 moved from April 7, 2017 to August 4, 2017 and the new Mummy film moved up from June 24, 2016, to March 24, 2017.

But perhaps the biggest news is that Duncan Jones' Warcraft has moved from March 11, 2016, to Friday, June 10, 2016. The film was originally going to come out in December 2015, but Star Wars: The Force Awakens forced its move into March 2016. Now the move to June suggests that Universal thinks the film can compete in the crowded summer movie season, and also moves it away from Batman v Superman, which could have affected its box office after two weeks in release.
