We caught up with Jones to talk about Warcraft, spending almost four years of his professional life on one movie, whether he wants to return to direct any sequels and let him drop some hints about Star Wars.
After years of development and a lot of extensive post-production, Duncan Jones’ Warcraft movie is officially less than a year away. Lucky Comic-Con attendees will probably get to see a trailer this weekend, but those of us at home get a consolation prize: two new posters depicting the human warrior Anduin Lothar and the Orc chieftain Durotan.
The long-awaited Warcraft movie is a little under a year away…and director Duncan Jones thinks that’s just enough time to squeeze in another movie. The man behind Moon and Source Code has spent the better part of five years developing, filming, and editing his adaptation of the beloved video game series, but his fast-and-cheap indie sensibilities still rage within. Can he film his long-gestating passion project while finishing his massive fantasy epic?
Say hello to one of the main characters of the upcoming Warcraft film, Orgrim Doomhammer, the Warchief for the Horde.
If you thought we were done with release date news for the day, you were wrong. Universal has revealed even more information from CinemaCon, including a few date changes for those keeping tabs on some of their major upcoming films. In addition to previously announced dates for the Fifty Shades sequels and Fast and Furious 8, the studio has also revealed dates for Pacific Rim 2, Warcraft and a couple of films from their revamped monsters franchise.
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.
The 'Warcraft' movie may be over a year away from release, but director Duncan Jones recently wrapped filming on the project and is heading into post-production, which means we'll begin to see some promotional materials trickle out -- like these first official posters, and a new website which asks which side you're fighting for in the new film based on the hit game.
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.
Duncan Jones' 'Warcraft' was originally scheduled for release on December 18, 2015, which it called before 'Star Wars: Episode 7' announced when it would be hitting theaters (many thought the new 'Star Wars' would go with mid-May as with all the previous films). But now that 'Episode 7' has picked the same weekend, 'Warcraft' blinked and has moved to March 11, 2016.
Over the weekend, director Duncan Jones paid a visit to BlizzCon 2013 and revealed some concept art from his upcoming 'Warcraft' film to a room full of players and fans. The director also divulged a few details about the plot and casting of this ambitious project, based on the popular online roleplaying game. We've been curious to see even just one bit of artwork -- or anything -- to give us an idea as to how Jones is approaching the world of 'Warcraft,' and this sneak peek is quite satisfying.
