The Warcraft movie might become a trilogy

    
123

Movie stills aside, we’re still waiting to see our first real look at 2016’s Warcraft film. The good news is that this will happen next week, as the film’s first trailer will debut on July 11th in Hall H at the San Diego Comic Con. Of course, if you can’t make it, there’s always a good chance that it’ll be on the internet shortly thereafter.

The World of Warcraft film could even be the first of a trilogy if it does well. In a recent interview, director Duncan Jones indicated a desire to see more movies made: “Hopefully, if I have done my job right, people will want to know and see more! There is certainly plenty more to tell! I would love to be part of that process of expanding on the lore that makes up Warcraft, but it will all depend on what you, the audience, think of our first film!”

Warcraft is being made by Legendary Pictures and will be released on June 10th, 2016.

Zarkov Yeah of course.  With how many books there are of Warcraft lore, as well as the three RTSes, you could make dozens of movies easily.

jeabus Wakkander bryanjturner  Technically it is a word.  Yes, it is a double negative that actually is ascribed the same meaning as the single negative form.  I only cringe a very little (because I know people who use the word far too frequently!)  There are far more important things going on here… like a post that has some decent thought behind it, makes a good point, and accurately describes the methodology of the movie making industry at this time.
It is certainly no worse (is it thought to have originated as a combination of two words) than the recently added ‘autotune’, ‘birdhouse’, ‘boiler room’, ‘crowdfund’, ‘dartboard’, ‘sext’, or etc. onward.  In fact, the last ~15 years has seen so many words that are either simply two words slammed together, or that are abbreviations of other words… that picking on something that isn’t just a popular phrase of modern times seems rather ridiculous.  If you truly wish a noble battle over words, you could start with the dictionaries that have such low standards, instead of lambasting a fairly regular person for using something that is, contrary to your statement, included within those publications.

jeabus Wakkander bryanjturner Ain’t you got alot better to do? Anyways maybe I can incentivize you to look up the word irregardless in the dictionary, because it actually is a word, check out merriam-webster: “The most frequently repeated remark about it is that “there is no such word.” There is such a word, however.” Maybe not a highfalutin one an all, but there ya go. Afterwards you can kindly recall noone asked for your advice as an editor.

‘scuse me now, I have to see a man about a jabberwocky.

Wakkander bryanjturner Did anyone else cringe at the use of the non-word “irregardless”? Double negative bro.

I don’t know, but I suspect this movie will be the only one in its trilogy.  Video game movies don’t really do well.  I guess time will tell.

Ha ha ha ha.
Yeah, it’s possible it’s going to become a trilogy, as much as any Uwe Boll product might.

If this movie breaks even, I’ll be shocked (meh, likely there’s enough people that might just go out of nostalgia, but then again I played *despite* the stupid, anachronistic lore, not because I was enchanted with the storytelling).

haggus71 BrianSleider bryanjturner The orcs are on equal footing in lotr, except they are facing the heroes of the story. Plot armor is amazing stuff. Regardless of who the protagonist is in the warcraft movie I can promise you they will go through enemies just as easily as Aragorn and Co.

Seems poetic justice that any mention of “Trilogy” ends up with “Man, the hobbit movies sucked!” 
PJ simply got too full of himself.   He decided (apparently) that we liked his style of storytelling better than Tolkien’s.
No, we don’t, PJ.
