This Friday, we will finally see some footage from the epic new movie Warcraft based on Blizzard Entertainment’s game series of the same name when the trailer drops. In the meantime, Universal and Legendary have released a new poster for the film. Check it out here below.
While the movie itself won’t be out until June 2016, there is a lot of anticipation as a Warcraft game/movie crossover has been in the works for a very long time. Fans have been anxious for months now to see how ILM and director Duncan Jones will bring the rich fantasy world to life. This despite Universal Studios reportedly being nervous about the film after a mediocre response at SDCC 2015. With the trailer, we can finally see the Horde axes crushing down some Alliance shields (hopefully). Perhaps then the Universal won’t be as nervous.
Director Duncan Jones is deep into the production on 2016’s Warcraft movie. But Jones did take the time to take to Twitter yesterday, and he revealed a unique experience where you can get a sneak peek at the world of Azeroth, where the film based on Blizzard Entertainment’s Warcraft franchise is set in.
Check out the Twitter happiness and the details below.
This past weekend at Blizzard Entertainment’s big show BlizzCon in Anaheim, CA, Legendary Pictures and Atlas Entertainment pulled the curtain back on more details about Warcraft, the much-anticipated live-action film adaptation of Blizzard’s popular video game.
Director Duncan Jones appeared on a panel for the film and the characters for the film were revealed, along with some new actors. See the list below of characters and their respective actors, divided up between “Alliance” and “Horde.”
It was also confirmed that Warcraft will be visiting the world of Azeroth as it was in the age of the first war.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock somewhere in Ashenvale for the past 3 months chances are you’ve been noticing how big Wraith of the Lich King has been for World of Warcraft. With a retooling of the game in the near future and the addition of achievements, new raids to come and what seems to be a never ending stream of pwnage, its no wonder so many old fans and noobs alike are picking this game out and drawing battle lines for the never ending struggle between the Alliance and the Horde.
Well Lok’ Tar! My friends, because two members of the Geeks of Doom Warcraft Guild (lovingly referred to as GoDs), along with some very cool Horde players, took one home for the Horde with the slayings of all four main leaders of the so called ‘Alliance’! So first and foremost, congrats to Doomhammre and Tarsonus (yeah, me) on their Epic Black Bear Mounts. Just remember, Mr. Wolfcastle from Simpson’s said it best. “Zee goggles. Dey do Nothing!!”.
Now to inform on how we did our mass slaying all in one night. First we stormed the boat in Darkshore to gain our way to Exodar, home to the otherworldly Draenei. We charged in with lightning speed as we weaved our way past guards and right onto the pedestal where Prophet Velen stood. It was a short fight this one, as the alliance have all but forsaken Exodar and Darnassius. After we gave him the final farewell, it was back out, and on the boat to the home of the Night elves. The next on our ‘Death List Four’ was High priestess Tyrande Whisperwind. She too was a piece of cake.
