I can't see what's so bad about it. Except for Dalaran is not suppose to be flying in that particular moment in time.

I don't think so, it looks like the birth/rise of Thrall, which predates the fall of Dalaran.

I've never played a minute of WoW, but I played all the RTS games. So I don't know what the retconned or whatever. I could be wrong.

OH SHIT! Ragnar Lo­brok!

Never played WoW, played the first two RTS games, wasn't even aware they had a plot. I cannot rate this on canonicity or Warcraft trivia, but I love Vikings, and as such might be willing to pirate and/or watch this on Netflix.

Yeah there was a plot, but I got one of the cheap ones on the cd rack that just came with the cd and never played the story and just did online mode. It's still probably my favorite RTS, maybe tied with Red Alert. I guess if you're invested in the story, it's true that the movie's its borrowing from (mainly LotR) kinda ripped off the Orc look and general feel of WC2's cutscenes so it might be interesting to see it come full circle, but I dunno.. Maybe the fact that it's directed by everyone's favorite indie director will give it the same kind of cred that Spider-Man got with Raimi, but this trailer is about all I can personally take.

What this needs is a wise-cracking Pandarian sidekick.

This is absolutely the most boring trailer I've ever seen.

EvilHomer
My favorite RTS was Company of Heroes, but the plot for CoH was totally unbelievable and could never be made into a movie. I mean, seriously: all these Germans just one day MAGICALLY decide to turn into Nazis? And then a hundred thousand American troops have to land on some beach and invade France? Preposterous. Audiences would never buy that malarkey.

CoH does look pretty good, even though the Steam trailer is just Saving Private Ryan. Like it actually lifted a few shots I think. I guess that's why I liked Red Alert more than C&C because it was historically grounded but really fucked around with it, kinda like MGSV and the like.

And actually that's kinda weird: action movies have been taking from the original MGS's style ever since it came out, including the new Bond movies, and while I enjoy the cutscenes, it's like I won something and the cutscene's my reward. In a movie, there's no reward for staying awake for 2 hours.. maybe that's why it never works.

And Max Max Fury Road seemed to borrow heavily from Borderlands Too

He spent all of that green moon money. Royce McCutcheon

Last gasps of an mmo game culture.

MMOs might be the game of yesteryear, but I don't think a failed movie will kill Warcraft. Something Blizzard has always excelled at is taking their Orcs and painting them over whatever the biggest craze is. Don't they have a Warcraft card game and MOBA out now?

FABIO
a failed movie AND a billion Candy Crush purchase on the other hand...

One day, fantasy kingdoms will start using observation and prediction to determine the state of the world, and stop relying on feelings to predict wars. Then, maybe, this kind of thing would stop happening.

For something that seems to be born to made into a fun, dynamic movie this seems determined to drag it into this high-gravitas realm of Tolkien-imitation that will just weigh it down into crap.

#1. This movie isn't made for Americans. It's made for the overseas market, pretty obviously. The characters say things that are easily translated and non-controversial. Asia LOVES any Blizzard product, and this is going to make an obscene amount of cash overseas.

#2. There are however many million WoW players on this planet. If even just a third of those see this movie in the theaters, it's a tentpole. There will be sequels and Happy Meal toys. It could be an absolute disaster and it will still turn a profit.

#3. That's not Dalaran, that's the Kirin Tor. For fuck's sake, people.

There's currently only 5.5 WoW subscribers, and it's dropping every quarter.

I'm not interested unless it has a Cake Recipe Quest side-story.
