The fate of many video game projects (Tomb Raider, Uncharted) getting the greenlight for development rests on the success of Warcraft. If anybody is remotely familiar with that property, then you understand the difficulty of adapting from a world so vast. Its not just the online games, but comics, novels, trading cards that further expand the characters and the world.
Thankfully, both Blizzard Entertainment and Legendary Pictures understand the importance of not overwhelming audiences. The goal is to not just please hardcore fans, but to also reach out to a wider audience in hopes of creating a brand new franchise. Director Duncan Jones is at the helm of Warcraft, and will deliver a story that focuses on the war between Humans and Orcs.
Brand new character posters for Warcraft have released online. The batch features the main characters on both sides of the war. I think these posters look awesome, and closely resemble the beautiful character designs that I saw from the first trailer. Taking into consideration the 20+ months post-production work on the film’s visuals, I’m expecting Warcraft to be, at the very least one of the best looking films of the year.
Check out the character posters & short bios below. The film releases on June 10th, 2016.
