Yeah, Moon is a great little movie. Good screenwriter on this as well (Blood Diamond)
We shall see.
Blood Diamond was amazing and Tales of the Past 3 was all gameplay footage and was a great WoW movie to me. So I can't wait to see what they have in store. I have been talking about a WoW movie since my vanilla days.

A movie was talked about in the shadows for about 5 years but never came to light. Now that they are finally in motion for one i can't see why it would be too late to make a movie based on the best mmorpg of all time.

I don't even know what to say to this. The idea of a warcraft movie has been around since before WoW even released, I just can't believe they waited this long and are now trying to do it. By the way most popular =/= best, just for future reference, played WoW for 4 years myself, but let's be honest here, it's not the best MMO I have played haha

I would disaggree. When i first saw WoW I was very happy to get it when I got it I was blown away the game was great up until cata to me thats when i stopped. GW2 failed to that end for me I didn't even reach a expansion and i don't play WoW anymore either. A poster on another forum says it best
No, not really. Not when your IP had peaked at 13 million active players with a subscription, in a fringe genre. Couldn't imagine a hollywood movie coming out based on any other MMO IP, other than star wars, lotro, and TES. < 2 of those came from movies/books before games, and Warcraft has managed to absolutely smash their face into the ground in the MMO market.
WoW animosity in the MMO community is pathetic.

You didn't read my post clearly, I said I enjoyed WoW. It's not worth the post if you aren't even going to read it. In fact I'll just let this thread slide, I should of known rabid fanboyism would be inbound. Good luck to Blizzard, but I feel like they missed the boat on a good movie by a few years. Only time shall tell
Blizz Developers: "We need more Pandas! We just released an expansion about them!"
Duncan Jones: "You're f***ing killing me here, guys."
You can bet the farm, it will not have one characater from warcraft lore and will be like that movie dungeons and dragons with jeremy irons which you can see on this sites front page with MMOFTW video.
So many great lore characters to base the movie on and arthas story being most deep and lore rich, won't be in the film. maybe it mirrors darth vaders story to much. still more great lore they could use I get the sinking feeling it's going be something that not even in the lore and is very loosly based on some unknown characters adventures blah blah blah.

I'll watch it because WoW introduced me to MMORPGs.
I also want to encourage MMORPGs to become more main stream.
I think people are forgetting the target audience will be that of the target audience of WoW (assuming the movie is based on the WoW franchise...which is based on the Warcraft franchise).
In which case, you can expect probably a PG-13 with a lot of Tits and Ass, it will be the male version of a "chick flick".
Not to mention they'll use the 'new version' of Jaina, which is just horrible. Reminds me of those Beauty Pagents for little girls that frequently end up on the news because of how they dress the kids up.
Want a good movie? Blizzard take your books, the ones that read like "the blade glistened from the blood as he removed it from the guard's side". And use them as the Theme. If I wanted "Family Movies", I'd watch Disney.

As far as a rabid movie audience, I think they should have pulled the trigger on this during the Burning Crusade/WotLK years.
Maybe they are going to make the movie coincide with an expansion, so you continue where the movie left off.
Two words why I have no interest in this. Wing Commander.
Games seldom make decent movies and movies seldom make decent games.

Originally posted by RefMinor Lets face it, it's going to be shit, just like every other game to film conversion, shameless money grab.
You're probably right, but I'm curious to see it anyway!
