... Read All In 2006 Blizzard said it was working on plans for a Warcraft film. In 2013 Duncan Jones was attached to direct and filming started January of 2014. We got a few second trailer tease last week and today at Blizzcon Blizzard unveiled the first full Warcraft trailer. The movie seems to be a retelling of the events in Warcraft: Orcs and Humans with the Orcs leaving their dying world Draenor in search of a new home. There is some speculation as to if this is a standalone film or the first in a series of films that catalog the history of Azeroth. I imagine if the film does well we will undoubtedly see more but right now I am uncertain how well it will do at the box office.
What do you think of the Warcraft trailer? Is this something you are interested in checking out or are you going to pass on seeing Azeroth on the big screen?
Warcraft is the first wave of a ton of video game properties headed to film such as Angry Birds, Ratchet and Klank, Assassins Creed, Resident Evil, Metal Gear Solid, Splinter Cell and Hitman. Typically video game movies are not very good, hopefully these break that trend.
