    Looks like Uwe Boll does LoTR with an Avatar-eque interspecies romance. I smell giant flop.

    I don’t think anyone expects it to be “blockbuster.” It’s most likely intended for a global audience of video gamers and will be judged by turnout in that audience.

    I find it pretty interesting that they’re focusing on Warcraft instead of World of Warcraft. I would assume the latter would have broader appeal? Unless they’re saving it for a sequel?

    I’d say sequel potential.

    There’s so many stories in Warcraft. They’re starting from the beginning (Warcraft: Orcs and Humans aka Warcraft 1) in hopes of making more. WoW is really kind of somewhere in the middle of the overall lore of the game and quite a few of the storylines there have evolved from the first 3 games. I think I read the director is using this movie as a good platform to introduce the universe and plopping the audience right down into the WoW world might be a little confusing.

    Between the games and the books, if the movie does well, they pretty much have endless content to make sequels.

    I never got into WoW (i’m not really an MMORPGer) so the only story I really remember was WC2 LAN Party Deathmatch. ;)

    Haha. WC2 was definitely one of my favorite games of all time.

    The first two games had some lore, but I think the story development really became big in WC3.

    That’s awesome, haha. I really hope they make the movie darker than what they’re showing in the previews. It starts from the beginning, and the artwork included in the first three games was pretty brutal.

    I loved WC2 but then when starcraft came out the game play seemed soooooo slllooooowwww. I never went back.

    Played everquest and everquest 2 as my mmorpgs, never tried WoW
