Saturday afternoon during the Warner Bros presentation in Hall H at 2014 San Diego Comic Con International, Duncan Jones came out to premiere his upcoming film, Warcraft. That’s, of course, the big screen adaptation of the popular massive multiplayer online video game. Jones is still over a year from release, but he explained a bit about the premise of the movie – an origin story of the conflict in Azeroth – and debuted a short teaser trailer. We don’t have the trailer, but we have a description and a motion title treatment below. Read about the Warcraft teaser trailer below.

Despite the fact that Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) has already wrapped the primary shoot for Warcraft, we know almost nothing about the film. Clearly, the film is set in the world of Azeroth, introduced in the video game Warcraft and greatly expanded in other titles including World of Warcraft. And we know most of the members of the cast: Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, Rob Kazinsky, Dominic Cooper, Daniel Wu and Clancy Brown are all in the film. We haven’t known anything about their characters, however, until now. Ben Foster has just given up some big info, including the name of his character — and it’s someone that will be familiar to fans of the games. Read More »
In a few years, we’re going to look back at May 2014 as a truly amazing time in geek movie making. Right now, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Star Wars Episode VII, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Terminator 5, Jurassic World & Fantastic Four are all filming. Most of those are movies fans never in a million years thought they’d see made. To have them all shooting simultaneously is pretty remarkable.
Another film that certainly belongs on that list is Warcraft, Duncan Jones‘ adaptation of the ultra popular video game series. The difference between Warcraft and the rest though are most of those other sequels and adaptations are just starting their filming. Warcraft has now completed production after a substantial four-month shoot. It’s scheduled for release March 11, 2016, which means a mountain of post production can now begin. Read More »
