    Live action Warcraft has already been done with predecessors like LoTR. It's only natural they approach it this way, IMO.

    bleh, "live action adaptation" lets hope for a few things:
    1. they have the budget to do this right.
    2. bring the right actors into it
    3. respect the source material but thankfully with WoW it shouldn't be hard to come up with something that could fit within the universe.
    4. FFS go with the avatar approach when it at least comes to the none human, dwarf, elf characters. if i see an orc in as an animatronic or guy in a suit tables will be flipped.
    5. expect none of the above to happen. this is hollywood we are talking about here.

    I hope they end up making it more like hellboy (mainly prosthetics and makeup) and less like avatar (ton of cgi).

    The budget " Warcraft is expected to have a budget north of $100 million"
    I dunno much about movie budgets but that sounds like a ton of money ;o

    Duncan Jones is probably last director I'd expect, but Moon is one of my favorite movies, so I'm looking forward to it.

    PS. I want Sam Rockwell for Medivh^^

    Normally I'd hope for the best and expect the worst, but I don't really care about the movie at the current moment. I'd care more if it was full CGI like their cinematics. I don't think it will be bad just because it's based off a video game, however.

    The best approach would be for them to use the same method used to make the Beowulf film;



    Used real actors, and had a perfect balance between 'cartoony' and realistic. All in all I think they can do the idea justice. Naturally I think their first and foremost market will be the WoW/Fantasy playerbase, so I doubt it's going to stray far beyond what pleases them. All I can say is that I hope they pick some good lore to base it off; anything before Cataclysm, essentially. Since WOTLK, both questing and lore have left me cringing more often than not, be it regarding the Forsaken or Deathwing; perhaps two of their biggest failures, having utterly ruined those characters in 'developing' them.

    Ideal plotlines;

    War of the Ancients (Seeing how they pussied out of it in WoW with Well of Eternity)
    Alliance vs Horde (Vanilla style)
    The general TBC/WOTLK plots
    Pre-Vanilla events regarding the Burning Legion/Scourge (Fall of Lordaeron, etc)

    $100 million is a good budget for a normal film, but I'm not sure how far that would go in a cgi and effects heavy movie.

    I really hope that's not the case, it was rather awfully done in that movie.

    I hope it's more like in Avatar, but their budget might not be big enough for that. Depends on how far the technology has come since then I suppose.

    I just hope that:

    1.) it doesn't turn into a zombie movie with humans vs. undead

    and

    2.) there's enough moral ambiguity that it's not just humans = good, orcs = bad

    For a movie with CGI and such, that isnt that much. $100mil sounds like enough to get the job done though.

    I wouldn't say it was 'awfully' done, but the difference between Beowulf and Avatar was that Avatar didn't want to look animated, whereas Beowulf did. The premise of Avatar's CGI was to look as realistic as possible in its portrayal of an alien world/ecosystem/race, whereas Beowulf's CGI, as Ray Winstone talked about during an episode of The Jonathan Ross show in 2007, discussed how the animation was intended to look noticeably animated and not indiscernible from something 'real'; no finer evidence for this than the portrayal of Grendel.

    A recurring theme throughout WoW has been the developer's desire to keep the 'cartoony'/animated look; I think they'll reflect that in the movie.

    Jeez, haven't heard anything about the movie for ages. I thought it was going to be scrapped. I don't mind whether it's live-action or animated. It will be interesting to see how certain races carry on the big screen.

    I agree. All they really have to do is get the movie off the ground, market the hell out of it and gather a good following and make more than it cost to make and you may be looking at sequels. Here's hoping.

    I agree. My only issue with live-action is how they'll portray races beyond...well, beyond humans really. That said, films like Narnia portrayed their Minotaurs incredibly well considering the often live-action nature of their film. A Tauren that looked like this for example, would have me satisfied (if they go down that route);

    Honestly didn't expect it at all, good choice imo.
