WARCRAFT MOVIE - Release date: June 10, 2016 - Director: Duncan Jones

Official Warcraft trailer coming this friday


Finally, we have exact date for offical Warcraft trailer – Friday, 6th November. Also new offical movie poster arrives and one interesting thing, new offical name – Warcraft: The Beginning. To me, that is a sure sign that they are going for trilogy and prolly more.


Warcraft movie trailer stills leaked


Someone posted on reddit these 7 screenshots of the Warcraft movie trailer. Some familiar faces are shown, like Garona, Orgrim & Durotan with awesome looking Frostwolf, King Wrynn, Lothar and misterious High Elf in the corner of one screenshot :)

Few Warcraft movie images


From empireonline.com to mmo-champion.com comes these 3 Warcraft movie images. I hope Empire will give us better quality for 2 of the images in their online edition, but at this moment only Durotan is not blurry. Despite quick split between fans about Durotan looks, my opinion is – awesome. Yeah he does have human eyes, but since whole movie premise is about “nobody is evil”, then Warcraft movie orcs need to have that more human touch to appeal to larger audiance. Somehow I have a feeling that biggest problem with this movie might be the Orcs and what Lord of the Rings trilogy put into audience mind about orcs, cause Warcraft orcs and LOTR orcs have only name in common. Hopefully trailer to come (Duncan Jones said November) will maybe start to change that “pure evil” opinion about the orcs that LOTR movies set.

Ben Foster talks about Warcraft pushing the technology


While promoting his latest movie The Program, during interview with IGN Ben Foster talked about Warcraft movie and how technology used to make it is something that has not been done yet (I just hope it will be much better than last Hobbit movie).

ben-foster“Duncan Jones did something very intelligent. He made a lot of practical sets, so when you’re in the woods, or the forest, he’s built the forest. When you’re in the castle, he’s built the castle. It’s a huge, huge movie. They invested in pushing technology in a way that I’ve never seen. Duncan Jones loves the game, played the game; it was surrounded by people who have spent years it would seem of their lives in the Warcraft world. It’s spooky, because I didn’t know anything about the game. But you talk to people and they talk about hours that they’ve put in. It was made by people who have lived very intimately with the source material.

What’s most exciting is that it’s about humanising the characters. So if we have a creature, they’re able to track eyes now, and the way eyes dilate. It’s no longer an interpretation; it’s fairly accurate so if these are the windows to the soul, you’re watching a performance come to life. There’s an intimacy that I’ve never seen before in fantasy film. I think Duncan’s done something very special with it. I don’t even think this is about a video game. This is about old metaphors, old stories. It’s based in myths, and has some amazing technology advancements that I think people will really dig.”
