Broadsheet Trailer Park: Warcraft

at

Warcraft

What you may need to know:

1. It’s the third movie from the director formerly known as Zowie Bowie.

2. The plot might involve a plucky level 6 paladin and his quest for a magical ring. He is killed by a horde of higher level orcs before being resurrected and starting again. For hours on end.

3. Moon (2009) was tremendous. Source Code (2011), not so much. This looks like a CG trainwreck.

4. Warcraft has been in development for almost a decade. Sam Raimi was on board in 2009, but dropped out to direct Oz the Great and Powerful (2013).

5.
Leroy Jenkins better have a cameo.

6. Broadsheet prognosis: Less is MMORPG.

Release Date: June 3, 2016.

      Hey..I cant believe Duncan Jones directed this :) ! He actually played World of Warcraft for a few years I believe.
      Should be good mindless fun at the very least . I played the games for years so Ill get a kick out if it anyway.
      Its based on the original Warcraft games which were set about 30-40 years before WoW ..so it’d have to be Leroy Jenkins Dad doing a cameo.

    Iv never played theses games so just taking the trailer in to account this doesn’t look to bad.

    NEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRDDDDSSSSS.

    Just kidding. I haven’t played any of the games but I like the take on Orcs not being evil by nature. Could be good.

    no idea of the world of warcraft but this looks okay. and yes i would hope that Leroy gets to do his thing at some point in the movie…..

    Warcraft 1 2 and 3 really did feature some great storytelling so they have a decent base to go off. The orc plot arc in particular is a decent redemption yarn.

    Good god it looks like a mess though. It’s looks like it suffers from the Phantom Menace/Hobbit over-cgi sickness. Blizzard just released a few (fully cgi) trailers for upcoming games and they all look better than this.

    Everybody just chill, WoW is a computer game about imaginary Orcs, complaining they don’t look like real Orcs is splitting hairs. The material he has to work with is ludicrous from the get go but lets hope that as hes a decent director and a fan/player who understands the games he comes up with something good. Regardless its going to make $$$.
