When CGI break your suspension of disbelief.

looks interesting. I am possibly the only one here to NEVER have played the game so I have no idea how true it is to the game. But it has promise.

Actually, I've never played the game either. The movie looks interesting.

I have played World of Warcraft; there was a while where I had no D&D group to play with, so WoW supplied my fantasy adventuring fix even though it failed to offer everything that I love about D&D.

From what I've seen, and bearing in mind that my knowledge of the in-game lore consists only of the broadest strokes, it appears consistent. The orcs (and the draenei) did come from another world that was dying (arriving through something called the Dark Portal, if memory serves). It looks to me like the trailer is hinting that this film will show the genesis of the Allianace and Horde as opposing factions, and that seems like a good place to bring in an audience who may be only vaguely familiar with WoW.

Awww, where's all the sexy Dreanai? :)

But, in actual seriousness, the movie does look interesting. If my friends want to see it in theatre, I'll do that, otherwise, definitely going to be a Redbox for me [I almost never go to actual movie theatres anymore!]

haven't played since the earliest games but yep its essentially the storyline. Orcs are noble savages from a dying world with most becoming corrupted after drinking demon-blood. The orcs eventually invade the human world Azeroth with only a few warning against the demonic corruption and descent into aggression and violence - that looks to be the story that the movie is telling. It even has the baby which iirc puts the movie in the era of the second game

The game has a dragon, I'm wondering if the movie will too

I've not played the game, but that trailer looks utterly awful. I'm sure it will make tons of money.

Hmmm, as a retired Warcrack player, I am disappointed in the trailer. It looks nothing like the game. I mean, why isn't everyone wandering around in a predictable triangle pattern waiting to be killed?

Nah. I think the Draenei weren't in it because they're still debating whether or not to give the uh "horse member" they have in so much of the fan art.

:p

Doesn't look half bad. Didn't see any of the other races though, maybe a quick glance at trolls?

Probably won't see it in theaters but might rent it.

theres a dwarf at the right sideof the alliance council meeting but its literally blink and miss it. So one of the blondes in the scene is probably an elf

I have certainly played my share of WoW, though this trailer doesn't give huge insight towards how loyal to the lore it is. In terms of broad strokes there is similarities.

I have to agree with Morrus though. That trailer... This movie will probably make some good bank. There are a lot of die hard WoW players and fans of the lore. Not only that, some may see it just for nostalgia's sake.

I'm mainly wondering what took them so long. It's been said they've been working on this movie for ten years. Duncan's been on board for three years. And apparently, under his guidance they did a major overhaul of the story, which initially was a simple 'good vs. evil' conflict.

I'm also wondering how much (if at all) this movie has been influenced by the story of the Warcraft adventure game Blizzard finished but never published.
