When is a superhero movie like Game of Thrones? When it’s the most pirated movie of the year, of course. On a new list of all the movies downloaded from popular torrenting site BitTorrent, the merc with a mouth tops the chart over Batman v. Superman, Captain America: Civil War, and The Force Awakens.

The Internet Movie Database is a fount of helpful information. With a few simple clicks, users can learn who shot the Miley Cyrus vehicle So Undercover (Things to Come cinematographer Denis Lenoir), which sequel in the Hellraiser franchise featured a performance from a young Adam Scott (the fourth one), or how old Taraji P. Henson is (who looks that good at 46?!). As a repository for loose factoids from in and around the world of screen entertainment, it can’t be beat. As a source for critical perspectives on those same films, however... hoo boy. Just take a gander at any comment section for a movie’s page and marvel at the IMDb is the site where rabid anti-Ghostbusters zealots congregated to downvote Paul Feig’s movie into oblivion weeks before its actual release, and the newly-released IMDb Top 10 provides an even clearer view of its user base.

With all due respect to the major acting and directing categories, I’ve come to really appreciate the Academy Awards’ technical categories in recent years. Whereas the performances and movies at the top of the program are often culled from a predictable pool of art films and auteur projects, the VFX Oscars tend to be a bit more egalitarian in nature, honoring whatever movies are the most impressive regardless of overall quality. This is often how populist film genres not typically noticed by the Academy  —  action, science-fiction, fantasy  —  slip into Oscar contention.

Despite huge numbers in China, the future of the Warcraft franchise may hinge on how well it does on Blu-ray and DVD. To that end, Legendary Entertainment has started teasing the September 27 release date of the Warcraft Blu-ray with some new deleted scenes and special features. Clips like the one above also tease some of the extra footage that director Duncan Jones shot  —  and was forced to cut —  during the Warcraft production process.

‘Warcraft’ Sequel Teased by Film’s Official Social Media Account...In China

Warcraft didn’t perform very well domestically, which isn’t entirely surprising considering that Duncan Jones’ adaptation of the popular video game franchise didn’t exactly have broad appeal. But as many predicted, Warcraft was a huge hit overseas, particularly in China, with the international box office grosses making it the most successful video game movie of all time. But are those international numbers enough to justify a sequel?

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘The Conjuring 2’ Wards Off ‘Warcraft’ and ‘Now You See Me 2’

The 2016 summer box office hit another speed bump this week as two major releases — a sequel and a potential franchise-starter — opened to disappointing numbers. However, it wasn’t all doom and gloom. Despite the poor starts for Warcraft and Now You See Me 2, The Conjuring 2 opened at number one with the kind of debut that proves modestly budgeted horror movies with R ratings still have a place in the blockbuster months.

‘Warcraft’ Review: This Movie Could Use a Little Less War and A Lot More Craft

Who is the target audience for Warcraft? Based on the marketing materials, one might assume it’s for fans of Lords of the Rings: a high-fantasy action flick featuring orcs and dwarves, wizards and swords, mystical creatures and a hero who vaguely resembles Viggo Mortensen if you tilt your head just so. One might also assume that Warcraft was made for fans of World of Warcraft, the immensely popular multi-player online RPG that shares many of the same characters and basic narrative threads. But after actually seeing Warcraft, a different answer emerges: it’s for 13-year-old fans of Power Metal who run D&D games on the weekends and spent their allowance on a commemorative replica of the One Ring.

‘Warcraft’ Trailer: Fight Together, Die Together

If you found yourself a little underwhelmed by the previous Warcraft trailer, the latest one is definitely more action-centric, offering plenty of new footage and lots of that crazy fantastical magic-and-creatures-and-orcs business that made the original game series so popular. And if that doesn’t sound like your cup of mead or whatever, then this new trailer probably won’t sway you.

The summer movie season is about a month away, kicking off with Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War and continuing through August with Suicide Squad. There are other, non-superhero movies hitting theaters this summer, if you can believe it, and we have some new photos from those and several of this year’s other blockbuster offerings. You’re probably already properly excited for a lot of these movies thanks to their trailers, but if you’re eager for another sneak peek, these photos should do the trick.

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.
