Although many geeky comic book franchises have become some of the biggest Hollywood tent poles, movies based on video games have yet to cross that hump. Decades of failed video game adaptations have left many fans wary, but Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) thinks he’s cracked the code with Warcraft. Although his filmography is short Jones has proven himself adept at turning high concept plot points into digestible and compelling stories. Will Warcraft be the first big video game movie?
Check out the trailer and see for yourself! The fantasy setting of Warcraft provides an exciting outlet that many fans of the genre haven’t had the opportunity to see done well since Peter Jackson’s original Lord of the Rings trilogy (and maybe at moments with The Hobbit), and a great cast including Toby Kebbell and Dominic Cooper, it looks like Warcraft could be worth a shot. What do you think?
Warcraft hits theaters on June 10, 2016.
