    No it's not gonna be an awesome movie. It will lack depth. Only blind fanboys will enjoy it.
    My thoughts exactly. If this movie ever comes to pass it will be embarassing enough to make you want to hide you're into the games.

    No matter how much money you throw at it, its still a movie based on a fairly general fantasy setting of a video game. It cant do much.

    Sounds more like a individual problem then the movie.

    Well, a quote I found was quite interesting:

    Director Uwe Boll contacted Blizzard about directing the film, but Blizzard refused. As quoted by MTV news Uwe Boll stated: "I got in contact with Paul Sams of Blizzard, and he said, 'We will not sell the movie rights, not to you... especially not to you. Because it's such a big online game success, maybe a bad movie would destroy that ongoing income, what the company has with it."

    The amount of money spent making a movie in no way influences the quality of the movie. Source: the entire history of cinema.

    P.S. It's a movie made of a video game, if it ever happens it will be terrible. I know it, you know it.

    There is a Warcraft movie out ?!
    ...and then...fucking ponies everywhere.

    I thought the WoW movie was scrapped. If it isn't, Metzen should not be allowed anywhere near the script or the microphone.
    WoW having more subs than SWTOR is the same thing as Justin Bieber having more youtube plays than Tupac. Just because its more popular doesn't mean its good.
    Warcraft Lore has gone from one of the most vast and interesting stories in all of gaming to a bad Thrall Fanfic by Chris Metzen.
    SWTOR Referral link: http://www.swtor.com/r/2MpjV9 7 free days and other free stuff.

    I think I remember a video of Metzen on the MoP release saying the WoW Movie was actually finally moving forward and on its way. Not sure though.

    If the Dungeon Siege movie(s) are anything to go by, you're completely right. As well as the Dungeons and Dragons movie (although at the time, that wasn't a video game i believe )

    Movies made after video games ALWAYS suck ass.
    Video games made after movies ALWAYS suck ass...if EA is involved. Just mentioning EA somehow conjures a slight smell of poo in the air. But no, video games made after movies don't always suck if EA isn't in on it.

    Money does not mean quality. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0401729/ Most recent flop which comes to mind.

    If the movie gets ever made, I doubt it will be about a major character, because fans would be nitpicking. It will be a new human character, probably a male, as they once said. There will probably only one major character or two, and they will be secondary characters, even cameo. The new characters will need to shine on their own, without having Thrall, Varian or Malfurion overshadowing them.

    If Metzen is involved, it will obviously be about an orc character who becomes the saviour of his people and gets a blue troll girlfriend and fights off humans coming dig for oilum, in a huge scene involving flying gnomecopters led by a human general with a scar on his face...oh wait, wrong movie but plenty of usable cliches and Metzen LOVES cliches.

    In October 2009, production company Legendary Pictures along with Blizzard Entertainment announced that the film's budget would be "Not less than $220 million"

    Personally I don't believe it'll ever be released, if it is I think it will be so far into the future that no one will care about it anymore, I know I wouldn't pay to see it tomorrow.

    Whatever the case, I doubt it'll be as big as any of the blockbuster movies.
    I'm mean because you're stupid.

    The movie ain't gonna happen. I'm also never wrong.

    WoW's lore is pretty extensive, but it pales in comparison to LOTR and the world Tolkein created. That's what makes LoTR so epic, not how much money you throw at it.

    Silent Hill like someone said, also the first Resident Evil (I personally like the rest of them as well on varying levels, but their overall quality is debatable) movie.

    That was said about a certain piece of shit that I dare not even type the name of.
