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.
Massively multiplayer online role-playing game giant, World of Warcraft, hasn't been hitting anywhere close to its peak. As a response to the loss of about 700,000 subscribers and about 54% of its revenue in 7 months, Blizzard is reportedly looking at adding microtransactions to the game.
It's no doubt that World of Warcraft has been a behemoth in the massively-multiplayer online role-playing game realm over the past few years. But it's also not news that its subscription numbers have been going down since its peak in 2010
The latest news about Blizzard's massively-multiplayer online role-playing game that's meant to World of Warcraft's successor says that it will be delayed until 2016. So Blizzard fans who were waiting for another reason to lose hours of sleep and score epic loot for a monthly fee shouldn't hold their breath.
'World of Warcraft' is coming to the big screen, and 'Moon and 'Source Code' director Duncan Jones has been tapped to helm the project for Legendary Pictures. Though most video game film adaptations are lousy, this could be the best one yet.
Sam Raimi had been developing a ‘World of Warcraft’ film for years, even getting to the point where he and screenwriter Robert Rodat (‘Saving Private Ryan’) had an estimated 40 pages of material but had yet to figure out the full narrative. Sadly, we’ll never get to see Raimi’s version, because the director says he’s off the project.
