Trailer Time: Warcraft Trailer #2 (2016) *War is Coming!*

Warcraft is a film that a lot of people are looking at as a potential bust in a crowded summer.  I’ve loved what I’ve seen of the fantasy epic thus far, and director Duncan Jones (The Source Code, Moon) has never steered me wrong before.  World of Warcraft has a global fan base that will certainly respond to a movie that does justice to the MMORPG, but can Warcraft break the video game movie adaptation curse that’s dogged attempts to translate the interactive medium to the big screen?  We’ll find out when Warcraft opens wide on June 10, 2016.

  1. Video games are becoming more and more like movies, but when Hollywood tries to turn the games into actual movies, the movies get dragged down and become glorified games, at least in the perception of the non-gaming public. When I saw the Warcraft trailer in a crowded theater before The Force Awakens, the audience seemed openly derisive (though I thought it looked pretty awesome). Someday the nut will be cracked, but I don’t think Warcraft is going to be the film to do it.
