Obviously the most exciting thing in the movie universe right now is Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and the teaser trailer has been gathering excitement all over the world. But what about the World of Warcraft film?
Warcraft was going to come out on the same date, December 18, 2015, but then Star Wars staked that claim and Warcraft wisely got out of the way. Now it’s coming on March 11, 2016, and we definitely have high hopes for it.
Warcraft stars Toby Kebbell, who will play Durotan, and who also stars as Doctor Doom in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot.
As he told Collider it won’t be a strictly black and white story. “It was an incredibly exciting project. (Director) Duncan Jones, his knowledge when you sit with him about science fiction, the understanding of what he wanted to do and what he wanted to tell, it’s a world…we weren’t playing goodies and badies, we weren’t playing the monsters, and yet we were the monsters (The Orcs). It was phenomenal to go against what my lazy perception of that was. We’re going to play the monsters. But I have a wife, I’m part of a clan that are beloved to me. It was a life that was rich and full to do that with Duncan. It was exciting.”
As we’ve said many times before, we have very high hopes for Warcraft, because if it kicks ass, there will be more good video game movies to come. We think there’s a lot of good elements in place for Warcraft to be a winner, and just like with Star Wars, we’re keeping our fingers crossed and are hoping for the best.
