It's based on a videogame, looks like a lotr rip off and is probably going to be greenscreened to fuck. It'll be a shit movie no doubt, but the fanbase will stop it from being a total disaster at the box office.

I'd put money on there being a shitty, token Leeroy Jenkins reference somewhere.

Going with Orcs vs. Humans for their first movie is absolutely beyond retarded

It's the most boring part of the story. It could have been done as a prequel if they really wanted to do it at some point.

Arthas trilogy would have been 10 times as likely to actually not flop.

>First movie ends when he slaughters Stratholme
>Second movie ends when he runs off into the frozen wastes after killing Mal'ganis
>Third movie ends with him summoning Archimonde
>Massive potential for more movies

>>64512500
I actually like WoW lore and I don't want to see this movie. I think the majority of WoW players don't give 2 shits about the lore at all, I just don't see who this is for.

And it's not even the good stuff. This is like the Silmarillion, the pre-lore that no one but the most autistic care about.
>>
>>64518542
>This is like the Silmarillion, the pre-lore that no one but the most autistic care about
Pretty much this

WC2 story at least somehow ties into the story in WoW

But WC1? It's literally irrelevant at this point. All that matters is that orcs came into Azeroth and Stormwind got rekt, that's it.

I would even be down for them to just jump right into WC3. You can tell the back-story in like 5 minutes of exposition

>A demonic portal opened up back in the day
>Orcs came out, war happened
>Humans triumphed and now we have the Orcs in internment camps and shit creating weird societal conflict.

That wouldn't even be too hard for normies to jump into. Aliens invade - humanity wins, but shit got weird. Annnd go.

We'd get Arthas and Thrall and shit, the "birth" of Sylvannas that's who we want to see. I don't want to see Thrall as a fucking baby, god damnit George Lucas.

LotR was easy to follow for everyone, so I don't see how Arthas' story would have been more difficult to adapt or to understand by mainstream audiences.

Yeah, pretty much this.

And if they actually succeeded with the WC3 plot, they could have made prequels of WC1 and WC2.

They should have gone with the Marvel approach

>Make an Arthas movie that establishes some major characters

>>
>>64519126
then why would you say it's a normie game "now"? plus the large majority of that population is from china where they pay per minute once a month and get counted as a subscriber
>>
The worst part about this is that they very likely have a trilogy in mind where 2 and 3 will cover the good parts of the franchise, like arthas and illidan, but they felt they needed to "introduce" the universe in a first movie first

They'll likely break the back on the entire project off of this movie alone. Feels pretty bad when you think about what could've been.
>>
>>64519126
The size of WoW's population was always massively overstated by blizzard.
>>
>>64519274
Arthas story line is way too boring compared to LotR. Add that to people being curious about events being mentioned every 5 minutes and not shown and you have a pretty good straight to DVD movie.
>>
>>64519351
chinese accounts even get free hours every month. So if you have enough you can functionally play for free.
>>
>>64519331
No, you don't understand. I actually do like the story all the way from the start, even before WC1. But you don't build a success of a movie on a tiny group of base dwelling neckbeards such as myself that care about these parts of the story.

Because it started as a 2D sprite based RTS that needed the exaggerated art style for players to quickly differentiate one blob of pixels from another. Then became a 3D RTS with the same requirement, except for polygons. Then became a 3Dmmorpg with, again, the same requirements.

But considering the source material is just a slightly wrinkled version of warhammer, the only unique aspect it has is the god-awful art direction.

Orcs are not turks, they're just random barbarians. Mixmax of mongol and viking. They have turkish sounding names because turk names sound like they're out of Mordor, not the other way around. There's even a meme image of orcs from LOTR with female turkish names under them, they just sound orcish.

The part of the game that makes it so accessible is why it will flop. It's generic fantasy setting 500, which is great if you're trying to make a game with an uncomplicated setting that can entice everyone to jump in to play, but as a movie setting, it comes off as vanilla, uninspired, and not compelling in the slightest. I've dumped literal months of my life, as in 30 sets of 24 hours into WoW, and even Warcraft before that, and there is nothing about this movie that makes me want to lay down $8 to sit down and watch it.

It will flop.

Let me let you guys in on a little secret. All of these game movies banking on name appeal will flop because nobody outside of your little nerd community has heard of this shit no matter how all encompassing and popular you think it is.

Shit like this won't sell for another 15 to 20 years because you need multiple generations to reach a critical mass large enough to have the success of something like Transformers.

Now this ends today's lesson.

For any videogame movie to succeed today it is going to have to do it strictly on the quality of the film and critical success alone.

Brand recognition by gamers will not help it AT ALL at the box office.

It might help the movie get made but it won't help it succeed. Besides, most gamers are entitled freeloading pirates that will just torrent the movie anyway if they want to see it.

It all comes down to marketing I think, there's an opening in the yearly fantasy movies at the moment, they might be able to continue from where the hobbit left off, although since those movies were generally not liked we'll see.

All of the clans were supposed to be green. Only mag'har orcs who stayed behind in outland were brown. Orcs in warcraft lore were supposed to be naturally brutal and violent, and there was infighting between them. Thrall was the exception because of his upbringing and medivh's intervention.

Warcraft 3 movie will be based on Thrall.
