>>
>>64693788

Are you trying to trigger me or what ? Please be bait. Warcraft was inspired by Warhammer and StarCraft was inspired by Warhammer 40000

Warhammer has too much autism for anyone but Tarantino to handle, so no.
>>
i read your file corporal. Venezuela that was some mean bush
>>
>>64694080
Why? Design aside, the only difference there is compared to any other scifi movie is that the good guys are fucked up and the main characters plot armor is supposed to be way thiner. It's not too autistic
>>
>>64694168

It's an underage fedora-tippers power fantasy anime-like feature. I'm sorry anon, even the Dune universe is more tolerable.
>>
>>64694280
Pretty sure people would dig it.
>>
>>64694597
Warhammer is too niche, even with proper marketing it would still bomb
>>
>>64693999
But after blizzards copycat ips got more popular gw plagiarised them back
>>
>>64694640
One could say that about marvel capeshit
>>
>>64694640
Just look at the WoW movie coming out and thats like pretty well known
>>
>>64693999

warcraft 1 was originally a warhammer game but they lost the liscence during production and made up their own orc vs human story
>>
>>64694280
>even dune is more tolerable
Literally the same 80s space goth aesthetic for nerds
Neither would be simple enough to gain a following in todays market
80s space opera is too radical for normies,

>Should Avatar have been a Warhammer 40k movie?
What? No, there are barely any similarities. Star Wars is about 10x closer to 40k than Avatar is.
>>
>>64694716
*Warcaraft
>>
>>64694811
Eh a 40k movie would have been 1000x more interesting than Spicahontas with blue cats
>>
>>64694640
This tbph. Not that it would bomb, though- it would just never get made in the first place.
>>
>>64694853
For a small fraction of the audience.
>>
>>64694789
>>64694810

I'd rather enjoy Dune <:^)
But one can only hope
>>
>>64694640
Warhammer is a silly as fuck name. Its practically comedic or easily confused for a metal band.
Like literally you could take any blockbuster humans vs aliens script, translate it to warhammer universe and the name would still be retarded as fuck
>>
>>64693788


Eisenhorn movie starring Tom Cruise.

Make it happen Hollywood.

Star wars is about good vs evil

Warhammer is about evil vs evil with a healthy dose of genocide

>>64694168
What good guys ? 40k is basically sociopaths vs psycopaths.That's why it is a lovely setting

How is a real weapon a silly name?
>>
>>64694986
I know, but even given that there are still far more similarities- fighting with swords, magical powers, galactic empire, higher tech level...
>>
>>64695030
It has nothing to do with the universe
Not even the wh fantasy
>>
>>64694945
True but that's just a matter of rebranding and marketing. Ant-man is a laughable name and yet no one minds it
>>
>>64695004
I should have said main characters.
>>
>>64695038
Hmm good point
>>
>>64694986
Thats why itll bomb.
Evil good guys only attracts edgy teens
>>
For my Tom Cruise as Inquisitor Eisenhorn movie Niel Bompkamp could pull off the visuals properly but if I wanted the movie to make bigger $$$ I would probably have to go with the Edge of Tomorrow director.

He could re-team with Emily who would play either a Sister of Battle, the psychic blank Bequin or an officer in the imperial guard.
>>
>>64695108
I'd say the average age for the WH / WH40K audience is 25~30
>>
>>64695055
Well thats why marvel didnt release ant man until they hada solid cinematic following
And ant man is basically who the hero is. What does warhammer describe? Now at 40000 on the end and see how much sense it can make
>>
>>64695130
Where are you from? In the UK in my experience their shops are pretty reliably full of kids.
>>
>>64695177
Ah maybe you're right, I was basing my judgement off /tg/ which is one of the most mature boards
>>
i dont think anyone except for maybe 2 people in hollywood have the cash to even attempt to make a warhammer movie and the dungeon and dragons movies failed so hard it's probably gonna be a while before anyone bothers to attempt it. also they would have to repeal token female character and token black character requirements
>>
>>64695142


It wouldn't have to have the Warhammer 40k name in it at all. Any and all 40k fans would know if it were a Warhammer 40k movie and for anyone else the name would be lost on them anyway.

Just set it in the 40k universe because the 40k universe is based as fuck and make the main character an Inquisitor because Spess Mureens aren't human enough to carry a movie. They should be featured in tit prominently but they shouldn't be the main characters.
>>
>>64695038
Except the fact that they use swords there's little similarities between W40k and star wars sword sparing.
>>64695052
What about the war-hammers that the space marines use?
>>
>>64695260
Yeah sadly anything that isn't a reboot/remake/sequel/prequel/etc. is doomed these days
>>
>>64695116
Inquisitors or Imperial Guard definitely got the most potential, being massively outgunned makes far more interesting stories than watching a bunch of suits of armour wrecking shit

If you wanted something a bit more ambitious, you could do a flick about the imperiums/inquisitors contact with the Tau. But that would require decent writing of an alien species so I doubt it could happen.
>>
>>64695373
You can go the rogue one way. Find a good title and include a small Warhammer 40k bellow it
>>
Too bad the Warcraft movie is going to bomb. If it was successful it could have led to a Starcraft film which could have led to a 40k film.
>>
>>64695444
>event horizon is set in the wh40k universe
There are some similar background ideas but the rest is horror film 101
Sure you can make up your own wh40k copy universe but thata not 40k.is it now

>>64695478
Star wars ip can and is getting away with everything right now because its star wars
Why use an established ip if youre not going to advertise it?

Oh god no. Thats just a formula for mary sue.

Kek. Normies wont get space orcs/space elves/generic bug race. Cheesy as fuck in 2016
>>
>>64695567

Because you want to take from the source material.

You have to start somewhere and the 40k universe is the greatest universe there is.
>>
>>64695733


It would have to be vs agants of Chaos. Maybe with a couple of moments with an Eldar to amd another race to move the plot along.
>>
>>64695484

The Warcraft movie will bomb if it isn't honestly genuinely great.

The critics are going to have to love it to give it the word of mouth to succeed.

There aren't enough movie going Warhammer fans around to achieve the critical mass needed for a global blockbuster type opening/gross.

IP's like that need to be around for multiple generations so that you can get mom and dad in addition to the kids that are already interested in it.

If you don't have older adults chipping in because of the nostalgia factor your game ip is gonna bomb like they all do until all Halo fans are old enough to have teenage/adult kids of their own.
>>
>>64695760
Then just copy it without using the ip like what blizzard did, but update it to be less 80s like what blizzard did
>>64695803
31st millenium best setting.
>in the aftermath of the horus heresy
Its like ep4 all over again

>>

Not leading man material.

Eisenhorn is an agent of the Imperial Galactic Secret Service.

He's like a more regal, scarred, knightly James Bond crossed with a Ghestapo

>Too bad the Warcraft movie is going to bomb.
I know this is probably a meme over here at this point but there's literally NO CHANCE that it will bomb
>>
>>64696421

What part of James Bond crossed with a Ghestapo don't you understand.

The difference between James Bond and Eiesnhorn is that when he walks into a room nobody knows who he is and when Eisenhorn walks into a room EVERYODY knows who is is and they're scared shitless.

They all play nice and smile kindly smile at him sith eyes full of terror. Eisenhorn is regal and has the highest class of taste for the finest things.

He's natually good looking but his face is scarred because he's seen some shit. Like REALLY seen some shit.

Tom Cruise could play him easily.

I have no idea how or why that word got in there. Too much Star Wars I guess.

>>64693788
>When will we get a real W40k movie?
Never? Warhammer, 40k/30k is more or less unknown for the majority, so it can't have big budget it needs. Also about what do you make movie, that people new to franchise can understand, but it also doesn't butcher the lore (like Ultramarines did)?
