'Warcraft' Director Duncan Jones, on Making the Ultimate Video Game Movie Duncan Jones is exhausted. He’s just spent the last three years of his life making Warcraft, the massive adaptation of the phenomenally popular series of video games created by Blizzard Entertainment over the past two decades. After directing the smaller, more character-driven sci-fi thrillers Moon (which he also wrote) and Source Code, Jones has taken the leap into blockbuster filmmaking with possibly the most formidable project he could have landed. Not only did he have to find a way...Read MoreRead Comments

Warcraft Projected For $30 Million Overseas Opening Some moviegoers believe 2016 will mark a turnaround for video game film adaptations, citing works like Warcraft and Assassin’s Creed as reasons to be hopeful. However, as the former of those begins its rollout into theaters across the globe, the prospects do not seem very good. Duncan Jones’ fantasy film has had rough sledding with critics, with most reviews saying the movie will appeal more to die-hard fans of the game than the uninitiated. In addition, Warcraft‘s box office predictions are very poor.

The human side of the Warcraft movie is best represented by two characters. The warrior Anduin Lothar (Travis Fimmel) and the young mage Khadgar (Ben Schnetzer). The two are brought together because of their connection to Medivh. Lothar and Medivh grew up together along with King Wrynn and Khadgar serves as Medivh’s apprentice. The two videos below give us an in-depth look at the two characters and how the interact. The somewhat sheltered and bookish Khadgar being drug into the battle by the charismatic and impetuous Lothar.

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. And the fact a lot of it was shot practically mixing live-action with CGI characters is impressive. Converting video games to film has not gone well over all. Has Legendary and Blizzard figured out how to do it? The early reviews seem to cast some doubt on that.

A Look Inside Warcraft – The Cast Talks About The Spectacle I’ve been pretty upfront about my love of World of Warcraft. I’ve been playing for nine years now and I’m eagerly anticipating the next expansion. I already have my Demon Hunter’s name picked out. 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). So where I will happily pay my money to see it, I’m going in with lowered expectations… or at least I was until seeing this new video. Below is an inside look into Warcraft.
