Let’s take a break from Batman and Superman for another epic battle — the Alliance vs. the Horde, aka Warcraft. The international trailer for Duncan Jones’ adaptation of the hit MMORPG has arrived, bringing lots of new footage as the two factions prepare for all-out war, and two races unite to protect their future. Orcs and humans fighting together, mass hysteria, etc.
In the midst of our excitement for all the new superhero movies hitting theaters this year, it’s easy to forget another major blockbuster: Warcraft. The latest TV spot for Duncan Jones’ adaptation of the hit game is action-packed and features some new footage, and while we’re still a bit skeptical of how successfully the series will translate to the big screen, one thing is for certain: at least it looks interesting.
It’s been a long road for Duncan Jones’ Warcraft movie — Jones signed on for the ambitious project almost three years ago, and today brings the first actual footage from the epic blockbuster in anticipation of Friday’s full trailer. Although brief, the teaser is a bit more revealing than most of its annoying “teaser for a teaser trailer” brethren, and given how long we’ve waited to see something from Warcraft, it’s better than nothing at all.
Just yesterday we brought you the first official teaser posters from Duncan Jones' adaptation of 'Warcraft' as the director hit Blizzard's annual BlizzCon convention to host a panel for his upcoming film. Jones recently wrapped filming on the project, and while little has been known about the adaptation, the director finally revealed the lineup of characters and divulged some plot details about the Alliance and the Horde.
Though the film may have blinked when 'Star Wars: Episode 7' took its release date, Duncan Jones' 'Warcraft' has at least one leg up over the new 'Star Wars' film: It actually has a cast. Ben Foster, Paula Patton, Dominic Cooper, Travis Fimmel, Toby Kebbel, and Rob Kazinsky have all signed on for the film.
To be completely honest, we almost forgot entirely about the upcoming 'Warcraft' movie until director Duncan Jones came out on that San Diego Comic-Con stage to present some test footage. Now a few months later, we finally have some idea as to who might lead this film.
