Orgrim Doomhammer: World of Warcraft film 01

Though Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures has a five-year deal, the recent developments now being reported are starting to look like there is a huge strain between the two. First Universal passed on Kong: Skull Island, allowing Legendary to move the film, budgeted at $125 million, to Warner Bros., which now allows them to build a shared universe opening the door for a Godzilla vs. King Kong film. Then reports of Pacific Rim 2 being put on hold indefinitely broke, and it’s unclear if the studio wants to move forward with the sequel.

But it isn’t just these movies that are causing a strain between Universal and Legendary. Studio politics and a few films performing below box office expectations are contributing to some concerns over films like Warcraft. More on this story below.

World of Warcraft Legion Expansion

Blizzard Entertainment this morning at Gamescom in Germany officially revealed the next chapter in the World of Warcraft series: World of Warcraft: Legion. The new expansion will expand the level cap once again, this time to 110. Also there will be a new playable class: Demon Hunter.

With the announcement comes a new high res CGI sizzle reel featuring Gul’dan and a brief video explaining a few of the new features. The new class will be a “Hero” class in the vein of the Death Knight class from the games 3rd expansion: Wrath of the Lich King. They will have unique abilities like seeing through walls and a double jump. The sizzle reel shows Gul’dan awakening the most well-known demon hunter in Illidan Stormrage. New demon hunters will be called upon by Illidan to fulfill quests as part of their “awakening”. Death Knights started at level 55 after isolated questing, it would be safe to say we’ll see a similar experience in Legion with Demon Hunters.

Continue below for more and to watch a feature overview of Legion and a cinematic teaser.

Warcraft Movie Horde

The crew at Industrial Light and Magic aren’t revered as wizards of the visual effects world without good reason. Thanks to the folks over at Wired, we now get a glimpse of some of the magic going into the eagerly awaited Warcraft with the release of a pair of new official images. The film is based on the popular video game series World of Warcraft from Blizzard Entertainment.

The two images give us a glimpse of the Orc hero, Orgrim Doomhammer, warchief of the Horde. He’s brought to life by British actor Robert Kazinksky, who was cast back in December of 2013 along with Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, and Toby Kebbell. Orgrim was announced when the movie’s lineup of characters and who’s playing them was revealed last year.

You can see the official images of Orgrim Doomhammer below.

Guillermo del Toro at the Pacific Rim: Jaeger Pilot Oculus VR experience

San Diego Comic-Con attendees were fully immersed in the interactive world of Guillermo del Toro at Legendary Pictures booth on Wednesday night. Hot off last month’s announcement of the official release date for Pacific Rim 2 (and the news of a Pacific Rim animated series), Legendary and filmmaker Guillermo del Toro have been working with tech developer Oculus VR on a first-person experience that allows fans to step into the cockpit one of the film’s Jaegers and engage in Kaiju battle.

I previewed a sneak peek of this experience myself on one of Legendary’s custom-built simulator rigs, as the Oculus Rift goggles were placed over my eyes and headphones over my ears. My field of vision filled with the interior of the cockpit of the Gipsy Danger as my copilot signaled me to prepare for neural interface. A quick mind warp and we were soon underwater, face-to-face with the Category III Kaiju known as Knifehead. Plasma cannon blasts were ineffective as Knifey soon struck the Jaeger, disabling one of its arms. A couple more strikes and soon Knifehead’s knife head was breaching the cockpit and directly in my face, bringing the simulation to an end.
