Mute Concept Art

Long before Duncan Jones got the gig to direct the blockbuster adaptation of Warcraft, he was a small indie director with only a few features under his belt. In fact, Moon wasn’t even supposed to mark his debut as a director, that moment was reserved for his passion project, Mute.

Now that his obligations to Warcraft are behind him, the filmmaker can start focusing once again on bringing Mute to the big screen, and has announced that production on the film will commence next week. More on the story below.

Warcraft Movie Legendary Pictures

Warcraft
Director: Duncan Jones
Screenwriter: Charles Leavitt and Duncan Jones
Cast: Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Ben Schnetzer, Robert Kazinsky, and Daniel Wu
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 123 Minutes
Release Date: June 10th, 2016

Critics have been rather harsh to Warcraft so far, and as the lights dimmed and the movie started, I came into the theater thinking that I was only there to throw a little love on director Duncan Jones. Jones has had a rough year so far, and this whole movie is a big risk for not only him, but also for Blizzard Entertainment, who created the game that the movie draws inspiration from, World of Warcraft.

So how was the movie, when watched by a hardcore WoW geek?

Movie Review: ‘Warcraft’

Warcraft Movie Legendary Pictures

Warcraft
Director: Duncan Jones
Screenwriter: Charles Leavitt and Duncan Jones
Cast: Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Ben Schnetzer, Robert Kazinsky, and Daniel Wu
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 123 Minutes
Release Date: June 10th, 2016

It’s not easy being a movie adaptation based on a very popular video game, especially one that has a huge fanbase like “World of Warcraft.” The long-running MMORPG has been a part of the gaming culture for the better part of 20 years, and with that kind of history, there is bound to be a number of stories to work with at anyone’s disposal. So with Warcraft, it was up to Duncan Jones (Moon) to go straight back to the beginning where it all started, and give us a film that both players and non-gamers can appreciate, by tapping into the source material and using the mythology of the fantasy genre.

However, the film does not deliver. In fact, it falls very short of saving the kingdom and lets the castle fall into the enemy known as boredom. Check out my full review below.

Warcraft Movie Legendary Pictures

Warcraft is the big budget blockbuster video game adaptation of Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft. The popular title has a huge built-in fanbase, and has been played by millions of people around the world. Now the gaming company, along with Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures, will be releasing the film this summer. Directed by Duncan Jones, the film sees the Orcs escaping their decaying home world through a mystical portal, and attempting to colonize peaceful realm of Azeroth which is ruled by humans.

We were recently invited to the press conference on the film’s press day where we sat with a group of our fellow journalists to talk to Jones, and cast Travis Fimmel, Toby Kebbell, Paula Patton, and Ben Schnetzer. There they talked about giving the fantasy genre a new voice, playing their respective roles, the visual effects, and much more.

Check out our top seven things we learned from the Warcraft press conference below.

‘Warcraft’ Trailer: Duncan Jones’ ‘World Of Warcraft’ Movie Storms The Castle
eelyajekiM   |  

Warcraft Movie Legendary Pictures

Universal Pictures has released a new trailer for the big screen adaptation of Warcraft. Based on the popular game of the same name, the film is directed by Duncan Jones and stars Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Ben Schnetzer, Rob Kazinsky, and Daniel Wu.

This is rather short for a trailer, and something that could easily be confusing because of its short runtime and lack of plot reveal. Not that fans of the game need details considering they have been playing it for as long as they can remember. But for those who haven’t invested their time playing the game getting some sense of the story would have at least helped. Check out the trailer below.
