Block out your schedule. Minecraft has a release date.
Warner Bros today revealed that Minecraft, the movie based on the wildly-popular video game, will make its debut on May 24, 2019. Deadline is reporting that the flick will be in 3D (duh) and in IMAX.
As a video game, Minecraft was first released in November 2011. Since then, it’s gone on to sell over 106 million copies, with more than 40 million unique Minecraft players each month. Mojang, the company that developed the game, was acquired by Microsoft in 2014 for $2.5 billion.
The movie will be directed by Rob McElhenney, best known for his work as EP and star of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Lego Movie producers Roy Lee and Jill Messick are attached to produce.
