    Considering that we're still finding out about the cast, I don't feel like I can give an accurate guess. I think a lot of it will depend on how the game's doing when it's out. If WoD ends up being amazing and brings back a lot of people, the movie will certainly be more well received than if WoW continues its decline.

    Yeah was kinda wondering when this remark would pop up. You're not even discussing the topic... how does pissing vinegar feel really?

    That was kind of my thought, so 50% of the OP's examples didn't really help his argument.

    Now, were there sequels to the original? I have no idea, and they very well may have sucked donkey balls for all I know.

    Besides, it could be worse. Uwe Boll could be directing!

    with do much money pumped into it I really doubt it will suck like the other movies based on games.

    I think it will be terrible. Like a lot.
    It will feature some total imaginary love story of a girl from the snowy part[sic] of elwynn forrest deeply in love with a guy from the doesnotexistinthegame-vally garrison.
    Meanwhile a brutal war vs the orcs is happening, but you never see it, because CGI is like really really expensive.
    You maybe see a orc. Otherwise just 2 Elves (humans with pointy ears) and a dozent midgets (in armor, so yes, dwarves, i guess) will show up and have their side storys rolling. Something with magic and dragons but nobody cares. As incentive for a broader audience we will see lots of naked human males, because that seem to work for game of thrones, and all that fantasy nerd crap is kinda the same.
    When the hero finally finds the magic sword (staple requisite of every bad fantasy movie) he will chop down the corrupt garrisson leader (in-faction fighting is so politically deep) and rescue his chick from the Stormwind Tower (because stockades sound so fantasy nerd crap)
    Then there is about 25 minutes of getting married, getting kids and teaser for the next part, because there is just sooo many store we HAVE to have a triology.

    Its for a different audience then players. But games have done the same for years now. Buy awesome movie IP and then make a mediocre game for a different audience.

    Game->Movie has yet to be done successfully. The only reason why the tomb raiders were good was watching Angelina Jolie run around for 2 hours.
    So just because previous movies about previous games weren't blockbusters, that means that it's impossible? That's some logic for ya. This is Blizzard. This is Legendary. They are putting a lot of work into this, they aren't rushing it. It has a good chance to be a good movie. It may not be the best WoW movie imaginable, but it has a good chance at being at least a decent movie.

    To say you know it's going to be bad is just silly. There is barely any information on it at all.

    Good theory, too bad they already said that characters we know will be very active participants in the movie.

    Any movie that come from another media be it a book or a game will always left a good chunk of peoples unsatisfied they are called purists; it has happen for any big franchise such as lotr, harry potter, marvel heroes etc. That said imho warcraft movie has the potential to be a blockbuster, also i espect alot of peoples that never played wow to start it after the movie is out funneling alot of new subs and a consequent gargantuan outcry from the "wanna be pro" on the forums about the movie(s) bringing alot of bad players into the game.
    How about we let the parenting of kids to... their parents? No, seriously, World of Warcraft is a videogame. Gaming it's supposed to be a fun activity (if you have that fun through challenges, social interactions, etc is completely up to you). Not some kind of "School of Hard Knocks about the Real World".

    I feel that when one of the lead actors in the movie post's this in he's twitter.. Im sure they care to make a great movie.

    I had every class at 80 and 85, currently have five 90's, main is a DK and has been since 3.1, one of the good ones though. (@RobertKazinsky)

    I think it's going to be good. But I wish it were full CGI. Look at wow cinematics. They are fucking stellar. If they could do an hour and half of that shit, it would be incredible. Live action I'm a little more skeptical about, but they've been working on this for a very long time. I think that shows they aren't just making it for cash alone. But because they care about it too.

    It has potential but the fact that its live action is making me nervous. Don't get me wrong it can work out but Blizzard already has these amazing openings to their new expansions. So why go live action?

    Why are you people so freaking negative? Is it because you hate Blizzard and the game so much you pray at night for things like the movie to fail?
    @Ghostcrawler:Some advice: [My pet issue] is why there were sub losses is one of the weaker arguments players use. Players don't have that data.

    It's an online forum. This is what people do on online forums. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

    Personally, I'm cautiously optimistic. Duncan Jones has a decent background, and WoW as a world is expansive enough to allow a good movie story to form from it. Yes, we've seen some terrible game to movie conversions, but I think that particular age has passed. Directors will treat games with respect, now that there are directors who have grown up with games out there.

    Also, nobody lets Uwe Boll out of his box now, so that's a major issue with game movies gone.

    Even if it's a good movie there's still a good possibility it won't gain any major popularity and will only attract the relatively small warcraft fanbase.

    Because Final Fantasy the spirits within. It's no secret that audiences like live action more than CGI. Going pure CGI would make it even more a film "just for the fans" and would limit the possibility of success with major audiences.

    I'm pretty confident that it will be a decent movie at least. With the production company responsible, the director and studio involved etc I'd say the likelihood of it being garbage is quite small. Not saying it's going to be great, but I'd say it can be anywhere in the decent to fantastic range. Can be wrong of course, even competent people can make utter flops from time to time.

There are some clever folks working on this and hopefully they'll pull it off. If so, there is so much more story to tell and other movies to follow. I'm pulling for them an hope they nail it.
    This is exactly the point I was going to bring up.
    The movie has to appeal to both non-wow players, and to wow-players.
    That is gonna be interesting to see.

    Not really. The potential of this title is quite huge as far as I can see it.

    *Censored comment about you doing something nasty with something else* now I have to listen to it again and again to get it out of my head..... But it's kinda good... With the test your might part and all... You know what ? I take my insult back, and I thank you !
    "Well...I think you don't get the concept of World First. It's not Method, it's NOT an obscure asian guild whose name can't be pronounced by the regular folks, it's blizzard !

    Yeah, cuz they had an internal test team, and they beat Garrosh. So by your standart, they are the true first."
