This past weekend was BlizzCon and the major player showcased was Duncan Jones’ Warcraft. When it was announced that Warcraft was coming people were like, ‘What? That video game?’ But then the moves started to happen and each one piqued our interest more and more. Starting with getting the awesome Duncan Jones to direct and then getting an incredible cast led by names like Toby Kebbell, Travis Fimmel, and Dominic Cooper. Now we get a few teaser posters and prop shots to quench our thirst just a bit.
Other than names like Jones, Kebbell, Fimmel, and Cooper – others included are Ben Foster, Paula Patton, Clancy Brown, Daniel Cudmore, Ruth Negga, and Robert Kazinsky.
Now I don’t know about you, but those names get me pretty pumped for what this movie could be, especially the first five. Director Jones has really shown what he can do on his projects Moon and Source Code, both pretty damn good. Kebbell just blew all of us away with his mo-cap ability on Dawn of the Planet of the Apes as Koba, he’s rising and rising fast. Fimmel is known for being Ragnar Lothbrok on the TV series Vikings where he is just awesome in my opinion on one badass show – he should definitely be feeling right at home with this one. And both Cooper and Foster have been great for years now, showing their abilities in a variety of different projects.
Here’s the first teaser posters for Warcraft:
As well as some photos of props on display at BlizzCon this past weekend, thanks to IGN:
With the saga in Middle-Earth ending this December with the final The Hobbit movie, this could very well be a solid replacement. It’s by no means the same thing or a knock off version of it, but it’s a giant world with an incredible amount of possibilities to be shown on screen. One thing is for sure, when March 2016 comes around we will be able to tell if Duncan Jones’ Warcraft is what we all hope it can be.
Until then, what are your thoughts on the Warcraft movie? And what are your thoughts on all the great moves it has made?
Warcraft is due out on March 11th, 2016. Directed by Duncan Jones starring Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, Ben Foster, Robert Kazinsky, Dominic Cooper, Daniel Wu, and Clancy Brown.
