It’s be a while when something solid and fresh was said about the Warcraft movie, except the fact its in a long post-production period (read – a lot of CGI). That’s not necessary a bad thing, despite the fact movie was planned to go live in December this year, but then a higher Force (see what did here :P) intertwined and it’s been moved to March next year. So movie is still a year ahead and many people ask me, why there is no trailer yet when on last BlizzCon folks had a chance to see some kind of a trailer. And they also said it was freaking good…
But even though I would really like to see at least a teaser trailer, I understand why not go with a trailer a year before the premiere. My thought on the trailer philosophy is Teaser +3 (First, Extended, Featurette) and put all that in 8-6 months period. If you start to early you start to put out too many to keep people interested, and too many usually means by the last one you have seen 15-20 minutes of the movie since you need to include some new scenes that were not in last trailers, etc. So before summer, I don’t think there will be oficial trailer for the Warcraft movie….and I might be wrong about that, but that’s my five cent 😉
Also if you don’t follow Duncan Jones on Twitter, give it a try. He is pretty active there and often chats about Warcraft things, movie included. I don’t post everytime he says something, but there are interesting twitter conversation going on.
“So let’s chat. I’ve got a movie coming out next year; Warcraft. It’s based on a computer game of the same name but it’s pretty unique. We’re trying to work out how best to let people who don’t play the game know that this is a film they’ll genuinely want to see. You know as well as I do, game to film adaptations have a checkered past, but I’m proud of this beast. It’s unique. It’s something special.”
