Warcraft is another videogame-to-movie transformation, but this one’s going to be one of the biggest around as it’s for the game World of Warcraft. How it ties in with the game, I have no idea, as role-playing games are not my cup of team. However, I know people who can play this until even after the cows have come home. That said, when I was a kid I dabbled in a bit of Dungeons and Dragons.
The film will take on the origin story of the initial encounters between the humans and the orcs, with an emphasis upon both the Alliance’s and the Horde’s sides of their conflict. Featuring characters such as Durotan (Toby Kebbell – Fantastic Four, The Veteran) and Lothar (Travis Fimmel), the film will take place in a variety of locations established in the video game series.
The film also has a strong additional cast of Dominic Cooper, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Clancy Brown, Robert Kazinsky, Daniel Wu, Ruth Negga and Callum Keith Rennie and is due for release in the UK on June 3rd 2016.
