New Trailer: Warcraft!

warcraft_movieI suppose it was inevitable. Given the popularity of the franchise and the massive hit that was the MMORPG, which pretty much put them on the map and made all major franchises want to follow (like Star Wars and Elder Scrolls), it was only a matter of time before someone got the bright idea to do a live action movie of Warcraft.

As you can see from the trailer, the movie tells the story of the Orcs falling upon the Azeroth and laying siege to it. But in a twist, we learn that the Orcs are waging war not only because of their warlike culture, but for their survival. Seems that their home realm, Draernor, is becoming inhospitable out or something.

I have to say, this is not the plot of the Warcraft I knew and loved. That game was morally unambiguous and didn’t contain all this “we have to come together for the sake of all of our survival” crap! Then again, the movie may not be a total suckfest. But I’m sure the folks at Comic-Con will be complaining bitterly!
