At first, I was like "Yay!"And then I saw "live-action". . .Now, how often does that go well :< Please don't mess this up. . .
Please do this right... I loved Resident Evil and their movies sucked... Besides the first. I hope you guys do this thing correct. Nothing but what comes from WoW . NO EXTRA CRAP! It would be like The Last Air bender... The movie sucked and the show was funnier then anything. Plz.. dont screw this up -_-.
I think to truly do an epic movie you need to do a trilogy. you need to do a movie from the view of the Horde and then one that is from the Alliance view. Each of the first two will show certain conflicts but from their own point of view. The last is what happened really. That the Scourge or the Burning Legion created the conflict between them so they will kill each other off or just weaken them self. Then the Scourge or the Burning Legion comes in to destroy all living things.
I haven't seen Moon, but Source Code was fair enough.Not the brightest star in the 'verse, but a satisfying piece.I don't know, what would be the golden mean in the case of base story line.My vote goes for the War of the Ancients, but then we would get orcs/humans only as time travelers or none of them at all. Bad decision maybe.The Third War and the Battle of Mount Hyjal would be epic enough, but they're gnawed to the bones already.I don't fear about this, Blizz never afraid of retcon, they surprised me with the comics as well, and they surprised me good. So, no worries.(BTW. Halo movie? Like this?)
Original plot line of the Warcraft movie had been an Alliance vs Horde idea, set in the 4 years between Frozen Throne and the start of WoW, Thrall would have been in it, and they said a Varian clone as well....of course, that was from a couple years ago.
@RankkorrThe problem with what you just said is that most of those movie based games were rushed to be put out on the shelves soon after its corresponding movie and that does not happen to be the case here
A budget north of $100 million. At least i know where my subscription goes.
Dear Blizzard, I really hope this comment makes its way into your corporate offices. A live action film is a horrible idea when it comes to making a Warcraft movie. Imagine a live action version of toy story?. On that note the reason why people got excited about the release of every single one of your expansions was because of the cinematic you guys release with each expansion. A movie has to be done with CG because it matches what Warcraft is all about. I mean ask anyone who plays wow if that cut scene with Chen kicking butt isn't one of the best CG cenematics they've ever seen, I know it certainly something i would never forget. So please do not make a live action Warcraft movie go with CG. PS Find some of the most amazing voice actors for this movie and I guarantee you a movie that will break world records. $100 million can make this happen.
Primarily because of the pure beauty that Blizzard can already do with cinematics; they should go the Squareenix way and create their own movie studio to produce a full CGI movie. At least then the fact that a majority of the people on Azeroth can use magic can be rendered well and give us some nice epic looking battlefields....that isn't imposed over live actors walking against a blue/green screen.
I'm looking forward to it. They can do AMAZING things with films these days, especially with a high budget. :)
OMG! its gonna be the best movie ever even if it is crap its still the best movie EVER!(an only better movie will be a sequel to this one!)ive been waitin' for this for years
Ugh...im excited for it but i have a horrible feeling we (horde) are going to be portrayed as complete morons bent on nothing but conquering the world, raising the dead and killing all that is not allied with us. Not all of us think like Garrosh.
1 Diablo 3 + 1 SC2 + 1 WOW movie = dont know because I havent seen it yet :P
