Warcraft – The Coolest Kids On The Block Duncan Jones thinks there is an arms race in Hollywood for the best visual effects and right now he and the crew of Warcraft are the coolest kids on the block. It’s hard to say for story and acting from the trailers, but the visuals we’ve seen so far in the trailers and featurettes are pretty stunning.

I have been a bit reserved about the upcoming Warcraft film though. Seldomly does a video game translate well into a film (or vice versa).

Universal has released a new featurette profiling the work VFX studio ILM did on Duncan Jones' Warcraft movie, which is mostly CGI considering the Orcs are humans performing on set with motion capture rigs.

I'm talking to you, movie geek. That's right, you know what I'm talking about. As much as film is a visual medium, often times a score has the ability to elevate a picture a whole new level.

Legendary has released two more character videos for the Warcraft movie. First up is Anduin Lothar (Travis Fimmel), a warrior for the Alliance and right hand of the King. He is the main human character and grew up with Llane Wrynn and Medivh, all three of whom are essential to the Warcraft lore. The second video focuses on Garona Halforcen (Paula Patton), a half Orc / half Draenei that was bred by Gul’dan who magically aged and tortured her.

Doctor Strange Director Responds to Whitewashing Controversy As popular as comic book movies are right now, there are plenty of challenges when it comes to adapting them – not least because many comic book characters were created half a century ago or more, and certain elements of their original stories are no longer considered politically correct.
