Legendary’s ‘Warcraft’ Set for June Release in China

Legendary Entertainment’s “Warcraft” is set for a theatrical release in China on June 8.  That means that China joins a host of other international territories putting the film out ahead of the North American outing on June 10.

The slot — a Wednesday — comes one day ahead of the Dragon Boat Holiday, a minor public holiday in China.

The game adaptation movie stars Daniel Wu, Hong Kong-based star of AMC’s “Into The Badlands.”

The film is a Universal release in many territories. But for China, Legendary has its own deal with state owned distributor China Film Group. The film is considered a quota import which will be released by CFG and Huaxia Distribution.

Legendary’s Legendary East unit will be doing marketing and distribution support for CFG, along with the financial partners in the movie Wanda, Tencent, Taihe and Huayi Bros.

The China connections get more numerous. Legendary is in the process of being acquired by Wanda, the giant property to entertainment group. Wanda has its own distribution operation, Wuzhou Film Distribution, but this has so far concentrated on local movies.
