Warcraft Movie [June 10, 2016]

Warcraft Movie

quick summary
Quote:
The movie will be two to two and a half hours long, and both Legendary and Blizzard want it to have an epic action kind of feel. Tull pointed out the film would blend elements from other big action titles like Gladiator, 300, and Braveheart. According to Metzen, the movie won't be a journey type of tale, like in Lord of the Rings. Instead, it will focus more on growing tensions between the races of the World of Warcraft universe and eventually culminate with some kind of battle. Character likely to make an appearance include Bolvar Fordragon, Thrall, and Cairne Bloodhoof. Arthas, a famous character from Warcraft 3, will more than likely not be in the film.
And what importance does this Bolvar Fordragon have from WoW?

I wonder in what incarnation Arthas will appear in, and when it will take place...

Captain of the King's Guard in Stormwind, and as the primary guardian of the child king, he is the de facto ruler of the most powerful human nation in the alliance. In fact, in the game, horde players wanting to take down the human faction leader have to go for him, not the king.

Uwe Boll won't be in. From the article, Blizz will work with Legendary Pictures, the studio that produces Batman Begins and 300.

This is Azeroth!

I would've thought Arthas' tale would have made a good movie, but I guess the classic orc vs human scenario wins out in the end.

Any story past TFT is garbage. Sadly, if you're going to see this movie, turn off your mind. It's probably going to be another 300-type. Mindless slaughter everywhere.

Stupid blizzard...offed Illidan...bastards...

Ah, the voice of bitterness.

I, for one, wouldn't want to see a movie about Arthas, if only because we've seen it. Why make a movie out of the plot of Warcraft III when they have spent so much time and money building up this entire world of stories? Besides, if they set it in the current WoW universe, it can be tied into a current, money-making product, rather than irrepairably connected to one that is, for all intents and purposes, dead.

Copy my posts much? If that's a joke or something, I'm not getting it.

I don't think the story will be that good either, to be honest. It will presumably have to be something that's easy to understand for the general audience, hence nothing that'd require game knowledge and such. It might still be good though, after all, I did enjoy 300.

I dont know if you know or not , but there will be a Lich king expansion for WOW which will be the story about Lich king.

P.S. I wish the same thing as you, but most likely they wont do that .

I don't think it will be that good, I mean, I play Warcraft III and WoW all the time, but honestly Warcraft as a movie....it doesn't seem that good...it's better a game then a movie...it will really only be endless Slaughter of Alliance and Horde...So I don't think it will be worth it....ANd if they don't have any of the famous characters and stuffs from Warcraft III like the Linch King, and the Death Nights....then it's not worth it...The Death Nights are awomes
