Duncan Jones reaction on leaked Warcraft teaser trailer

For few days there has been a blurry, crappy, low quality Warcraft teaser trailer (at leasted looks like one) available to see. Usually I don’t post those things on the site since they get removed fast and put the links only to FB page. This kinda sticked around prolly cause it’s on some romanian server as a direct video file. You can check it out here

It does look pretty good, in a matter of content at least :)

Even Duncun Jones commented on it on his twitter

Legendary Pictures already said they will show the trailer in November. BlizzCon I assume, but maybe this leaked trailer at least make them release a teaser before a proper trailer on BlizzCon.

Duncan Jones’s group interview from SDCC


A group of reporters from various websites had a group interview with Duncan Jones at SDCC at Legendary panel and crew from Den of Geeks kinda put the most interesting answers in one place. First thing that pops out about Jones is he’s real deal about the Warcraft. Somehow I think that at this moment there is not a director in Hollywood that fits better to tell the Warcraft story good for the movie.

duncan-jones“I’ve been playing back since Orcs and Humans, back in the real time strategy days,” he said. “I actually used to play Lost Vikings, which was a game that Blizzard made even before that.”

On question about how possible is that Warcraft movie will be that movie that will break the curse of videogame movies.

“I don’t know if there’s a curse to break, but I feel we’ve made a great film. I have an amazing cast. I have WETA who have built these stunning props for the film, the weapons and the armor. Gavin Bocquet was our production designer and he made these extraordinary sets up in Vancouver where we were shooting. We had these huge environments to shoot in, and then we have the motion capture performances where ILM have delivered, I think, their best work ever [in motion capture].”

About how will the non gamers react to the Warcraft movie, since a lot of general problems of this type of movies is that general audience was not usually targeted audiance.

“Right from the start,” Jones said, “it was absolutely imperative that we came up with a story that stood on its own, and brought an audience who didn’t know about Warcraft along with it. Not everyone who saw the first Lord of the Rings movie had read Tolkien, but Peter Jackson did a wonderful job bringing the audience along to get them involved in that universe.”

What can Warcraft fans expect in the movie and how are the characters potraited and to watch out for Orgrim Doomhammer played by mocap Rob Kazinsky, who is also a WoW veteran.

Official Warcraft movie trailer coming in November


I assume after huge fans pressure about the offical Warcraft movie trailer, Duncan Jones had to post a tweet that it will come in November. I guess during BlizzCon since that fits the time.

warcraft-trailer-in-novemberThere is something that pisses me off on this two pictures down. Bunch of ppl taking pics of the character posters and they only make two of them public in good quality. Now instead of good one, we have crappy quality taken from a side and I hope they will post all the posters before those taken by fans at the panel become viral.

Warcraft movie & SDCC 2015 recap


It’s hard to recap event when you were not there so I will just use the meshup of recaps from io9, geektyrant and ComingSoon

  • Durotan says “Our planet is dying, we need food and water.” A group of orcs sit around the fire and talk about how they believe in the orc warlock Gul’dan (Daniel Wu), and will follow his lead.
  • Next Durotan and his wife, Draka, are laying on the ground of their hut. The wife has chosen a name for their child, but the father says “I’ll choose a name when I meet him.” She then reveals it’s a son and he’s very excited.
  • We see the aforementioned Gul’dan on a massive cliff with the Dark Portal from the games behind him. “Dead, alive, dead, alive,” he slowly chants. He reveals that a thousand soldiers need a thousand slaves – prisoners, not corpses – as fuel for the Fel
  • Montage of shots of the Alliance characters walking in on and around Stormwind, before we go back to the orcs, “We are not powerful enough to defeat them” one says to the other. “We could be,” the other responds.
  • King Llane Wrynn says “They’re beasts, they should be destroyed. If we do not unite to fight this enemy, we shall perish.”
  • There’s a shot reminiscent of Braveheart where the Alliance is running from the left side of the frame, it pans right and the orcs are running, and the smash into each other in the middle. That’s followed by a shot of a guy jumping off a cliff and jumping onto a Gryphon.
  • Warcraft definitely looks like it’s CG and green screen. These are not real sets.
  • Think a dirtier, dustier, more muted Avatar.
  • I think many fans are going to complain that it looks to fake but, come on, how else could this get pulled off?
