They could take out a piece of lore and expand upon it, I can't see why it would be instant-shit. + Duncan is quite a passionate gamer.

I remain pensive regarding this. Bolvars article is reassuring but the curse of game adaptations is a tough one to break. I hope Warcraft is Duncans breakthrough project because it has potential.

More importantly though, I hope Metzen puts in the hours to keep this thing lore on the rails. Most people want just a good movie but for Sol we're going to need a good movie within the parameters of the lore. A much more difficult prospect even considering the game to movie curse.

So, Johnny Dep huh?

... Aight, here follows the undeniable truth:

The movie will be about Lor'themar as played by Johnny Dep. Dep has to play an elf and the only one being built up at the moment is LT. In fact that is why LT is being played up in the first place.

So it has been written, so it shall be.

He wouldn't do something on the level of Hellboy again. They didn't shoot the third movie because he didn't want to put on all the makeup. It takes a helluva time to do that.

Oh, and here's a hi-res version of that fanart: http://fc06.deviantart.net/fs71/f/20...en-d5dqvhc.jpg

Worst part of that comic is that I kind want that to be true just for shits and giggles.

I could totally see Blizzard working out a deal with Fandango so that if you purchase tickets to the movie online, you get a free in-game mini pet or something.

James Cameron would lose his shit.

Because such a tactic would secure massive ticket sales, yes.

And, let's be honest, he pretty blatantly ripped off Night Elves in Avatar anyway.

Well, he ripped off a few other movies before that so ripping off a fantasy race in a video game was the least of Avatar's problems.

I don't think massive ticket sales are really something they have to worry about. Blizzard has a good combination of things going for them, people have low expectations and everyone is going to see it no matter what.

I don't think the movie is a guaranteed hit. We don't know how much WoW will remain in the popular consciousness in 2, 3 years' time, and I doubt every warcraft player will see the movie. They need to figure out a way to get non-Warcraft fans into the theater, too. Probably with a wisecracking, ethnic sidekick.

It'll be a gnome. Played by Peter Dinklage.

True that, might even drag some friends along to see it if they make it visually impressive enough.


Anyway I've been thinking what the movie would be about, seeing that any info we've had previously is so old it might not even be relevant anymore.

The criteria I'm gonna go with are a) it needs to make Warcraft stand out from LotR and company b) it needs to be an awesome story c) true to the spirit of warcraft

My conclusions are:

-Troll wars, if the trolls are handled properly, i.e. not as stupid evil guys.
-Draenai War
-Second war, if retconned here and there
-First Battle of Theramore (Dealin's war)
-The orc+NE campaigns in the Third War
-Second War of the Shifting Sands (AQ in WoW)
-Sunwell (Kil'jeaden)
-Fall of the Lich King

And if it is an event that hasn't yet happened, I'd make it about the worgen and humans, who at first fight the Horde but join forces near the end to fight a hidden enemy which is screwing with both parties.

Your thoughts?

Nigga, please. We give ethnic-level privileges to anyone these days.

Besides... Peter Dinklage... doing the angry elf bit from Elf again... it totally works.
