Terribad choice, this is a video game,,,Do I have to remind everyone of the Final Fantasy movie?Remember when they came out with that?No?My point.
Thrall will be in the movie. It will be told primarily from the Alliance point of view The time of the movie is set about 1 year before World of Warcraft begins. The film is mainly about cultures in conflict. It won't be an adventure movie like LoTR, more of a war film.(Source : BlizzCon 2007) There you go
The absolute BEST decision ever for director of this film. Raimi will make this world his own and he will go crazy intense with something like this where he can let his extreme vision of horror and fantasy let loose.
I think it's funny all these naysayers are suggesting it's gonna be horrible because:a) It's a movie based on a game.b) Sam Raimi is directing it.The thing is, if you love Warcraft in any way, shape, or form, how can you NOT see this movie, even if it turns out to be bad? By the way, did you know Legendary Pictures is going to produce it? These are the same people who made 300, Watchmen, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and several other blockbusters. I highly doubt this will be a bad film. They won't let this be a bad film.In regards to Sam Raimi, I am a bit biased. I find his films horrifically funny and exciting. Evil Dead II, imo, is the greatest movie ever made! He has a fun and different way of creating films, and it's a style some people are turned off by. All I can say is, Raimi + Warcraft = orgasm. :)
I didn't catch the typo in the press release... did they fix it or am I having a WOOSH moment? :(
Everyone go watch Evil Dead 3: Army of Darkness. It will give you a taste of how the WOW movie will look.
Ok yeah ...I'm so excited! And I just can't hide it!...but then again Someone metioned this will be a video game movie...video game movies do fail hard core...The only good video game to movie (I've) seen is Resident Evil.
From the press release:
here's hoping for the third war, tbh.
I can see it now, Raimi begins playing wow for "research". Three years later still no movie and come to think of it nobody has heard from Raimi since the last time he went to the convenience store to buy more game fuel.
Wow this is crazy.Just 5 minuites or so before I logged on and read this I was telling my Girlfriend about there being a wow movie and that I thought Sam Raime shouldbe the one to do it lol.
I reeeeally hope this doesn't end up like that DBZ movie ...I will be such a sad panda. I remember when I first heard about a DBZ movie being made years back. I was pretty hyped about it and then it finally makes it's way over here just to bomb. Please don't bomb on us WoW movie. I don't mind waiting years but the final thing have to show that it used those years wisely to make something awesome! :)
I'm excited.Sam Raimi is a really good director, despite the fact that Spiderman 3 kinda sucked.
I always thought Warcraft movies would be CG only, im not sure how it would look like to see an orc in live action (if he plans to do it live action)i personally have my fingers crossed for a cg moviemaybe its just me...on the other handTake this Uwe Boll ! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!sorry i had to spit it out, wiki him and pity him :)
