Warcraft Goes Hollywood

Mar 31, 2016

The “Warcraft” franchise by Blizzard Games Studios is one of the most iconic video game series in the history of the world. First releasing in 1994, “Warcraft: Orcs & Humans” would go down as staple PC game that would not only define the genre, but set up for the biggest Massive Multiplayer Online video game in history, World of Warcraft. Finally, after over a decade that first amazing story will be told on the big screen, with “WARCRAFT” the movie. Starring “Vikings” star, Travis Fimmel and Robin Thicke’s wifey, Paula Patton, WARCRAFT will be telling the first story of the gaming franchise, as the humans side with their sworn Orc enemies to save the planet from an evil force. Gamers (especially PC gamers) are notorious for hating anything that doesn’t properly stick to original canon and lure, so this movie is either going to be blessed with praise, or doomed to ridicule from the Mountain Dew fueled rage of WoW veterans. Not to mention, when’s the last time we’ve seen a movie based off a video game do well (I know we all want to forget about that god-awful Hitman: Agent 47 movie)?  How do you think it’ll fair at the box office with such a specific and picky target audience? Check out the newest trailer (told from the Orcs’ perspective) below.
