Chinese movie news site Mtime got Duncan Jones to talk about Warcraft movie and actor Daniel Wu. We need to thank Manmademovies.co.uk for posting translation of the interview ๐Ÿ™‚
There is no surprise really that Chinese press got interested in the Warcraft movie. First, Daniel Wu is a big star over there even though in Warcraft he plays Gul’dan and he won’t look very human but still he is a famous name. Second, Warcraft games are pretty popular in China, a big chunk of WoW player base is from there.Third and also important one, Legendary Pictures have their sister company in China. Overall, China is very important market for Warcraft movie and that’s why there is no surprise that one of rare Duncan Jones interview about Warcraft lands on Chinese news site. They are huge fanbase ๐Ÿ™‚

On Warcraft current progress…

We are coming to the very end of 2014, and the film has been shot and we are finishing the editing. There are so many complicated special effects in the movie, that it will take a while longer before the film will be complete. The special effects will be very impressive though. They are being done by ILM, who are best known for their work on the Star Wars movies. Heading up the work are visual effects supervisor Bill Westenhoffer, who won an oscar for his work with Ang Lee on Life of Pi, and Jeff White at ILM, who made the Hulk such an excellent and believable character in the Avengers movie. While this work is going on, music composer Ramin Djawadi continues to build up a magnificent score for the film. As we complete our edit, Raminโ€™s music is being tailored to the cut. I am very excited. Day by day our film gets closer to being finished! Warcraft is scheduled to be released in March of 2016, so we have 14 months to make the film as good as we can! I very much hope you will enjoy it.
