Based on Blizzard’s World of Warcraft, the multiplayer role-playing game, Warcraft represents a chance to turn the tide for video game adaptations. A lot is riding on the film–this is far from a cheap video game movie–but will audiences unfamiliar with Blizzard’s property flock to director Duncan Jones‘ (Moon) fantasy film? We’ll soon find out. So far, Warcraft isn’t faring well with critics, but it’s not without its supporters.
Below, check out the Warcraft early buzz.

Preacher is a very different beast than the Vertigo comic book series it is based on and for many fans, this will be a difficult hurdle to leap. But everyone else can just jump right in and enjoy the blasphemy, irreverent comedy and the hilariously excessive violence, because the first chapter of AMC’s new series is a triumph. This is the kind of pilot episode that arrives feeling fully formed and confident. Preacher knows what it is, lays all of its cards on the table in the first five minutes, and asks you to come along for the ride with a wicked gleam in its eye. From the look of things, this will be a ride worth taking.

This weekend is a huge one for Seth Rogen. Not only does his comedy sequel Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising hit theaters starting with early shows at 7pm on Thursday night (watch the trailer right here), but his TV series adaptation of the comic book Preacher is also premiering on AMC on Sunday.
Rogen is easily one of the hardest working guys in Hollywood, but when it comes to his work at AMC for Preacher, he wasn’t satisfied with only being the executive producer and director of the show. At one point, Rogen decided he also wanted to star in the show. But he didn’t just want the lead role that ended up going to Dominic Cooper, he wanted to play every single role.

We’re less than a week away from the series premiere of AMC’s Preacher and I couldn’t be more intrigued to see what Sam Catlin, Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg have done with Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s twisted and hilarious comic series. By all accounts (the pilot was screened to a warm response at SXSW), the television adaptation uses the basic signposts of the acclaimed Vertigo comic while very much doing its own thing and that’s perfectly fine. I love Preacher to death, but it’s the kind of thing that needs to be massaged into shape for a television series.
AMC has released the opening scene from the first episode and it’s a doozy, somehow managing to sum up a great deal of what this series is all about in 240 seconds. There’s extreme violence, pitch-black comedy, a not-so-romantic look at Texas life, and the suggestion of a genuinely cosmic scale.

Like the rest of AMC’s popular dramas, including The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, the new comic book adaptation Preacher will be given an after show. Talking Preacher was announced on last night’s edition of Talking Dead since next week brings the series premiere of Preacher on May 22. However, this after show won’t be following every single new episode. You can get more details on the schedule after the jump.
If after shows aren’t your bag, but you’re still excited about Preacher arriving next weekend, there’s a new Preacher trailer for you to check out below as well, along with a pretty extensive batch of featurettes available online as well. Read More »
We’re only a few short weeks away from seeing AMC’s adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s Preacher. Any fan of the comic book series knows it’s been a long journey for this property. When Preacher was being developed as a film it attracted plenty of talent, but even a director as capable as Sam Mendes couldn’t crack the story. Mendes, however, predicted the story would play better as a television series and that “someone will come along that has a really good take on it and is able to do it.” If the early reviews for the AMC series are any indication, the Road to Perdition director was correct.

Preacher‘s road to the screen has been a long and rocky one, full of dead ends and false starts over years and years. But Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Catlin finally made it happen at AMC, and as of now we’re less than a month away from the show’s premiere.
Based on the comic by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, Preacher follows a preacher who develops some very unusual powers. Together with his ex-girlfriend and a new vampire friend, he sets out on a journey that brings him in contact with all manner of characters from Heaven and Hell. Yup, it’s just as weird and wild as it sounds. AMC has released a whole bunch of new Preacher photos to get you pumped up for the adaptation, and you can see them below.

The more we see from Duncan Jones‘ Warcraft, the more compelling it looks. While fans of the video game were divided over the first trailer, which featured unfinished VFX, the last extended TV spot presented a more tactile glimpse at the world Jones and all involved have crafted. The orc, in that TV spot, was completely convincing, and so was the environment it was fighting in.
To get another close-up look at the film, check out the new Warcraft character posters below.

Dominic Cooper was at Wondercon promoting Preacher, the upcoming AMC series based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s comic book, in which he stars as Jesse Custer. Meanwhile, Marvel fans are awaiting word on a third season of the series Agent Carter. Set in the post-WWII era, Agent Carter features Cooper in a recurring role as Howard Stark. Should both shows continue, Cooper suspects he would be able to do both, at least staying on in a guest starring capacity on Agent Carter.
“Yeah, I hope so,” Cooper said. “Yeah, because Howard Stark kind of runs in and runs out. He does some ridiculous thing, creates some madness and then hops off on a plane with a leggy blonde.” Read More »
