‘World of Warcraft’ Movie Will See First Glimpse at Comic-Con 2015!

ComicCon 2015 just could not get any better especially for “World of Warcraft” fans. The four-day convention at San Diego, California happening this week will finally see the premiere of the highly anticipated epic fantasy movie based on the most popular multiplayer online role-playing game. 

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Legendary Pictures confirms that the online game-inspired movie, shortened to “Warcraft,” will finally unveil its first look during ComicCon 2015. The “World of Warcraft” panel will have their day on the spotlight on July 11, much to the excitement of loyal players of the game.

The film basically narrates the story of the Alliance and the Hordes and their conflict similar to the premise of the online game. Set in the world of Azeroth, the film will also see the interaction between the human and the Orcs.

Directed by Duncan Jones of “Source Codes,” the film shall feature household characters from the hit online game such as Durotan, Lothar, and Garona. The film adaptation of the popular online game was already announced way back in 2006 but took almost a decade before it was finalized due to seeming endless negotiation between Legendary Pictures and game developer Blizzard Entertainment.

“Warcraft” will see actors Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Travis Fimmel, Ben Foster, and Paula Patton portray Stormwind King Llyn Wrynn, Warrior Durotan, Anduin Lothar, Medivh, and Garona, respectively. Patton will play half-orc Garona through motion capture technique. Rumor has it that character Leeroy Jenkins might have a cameo in the movie as he was written in the film’s first draft. Legendary Pictures is still keeping mum on which star is to grace ComicCon to answer fan questions and deliver possible spoilers for the film.

Expected for a June 2016 release to worldwide theaters, director Duncan Jones confesses that he is just 50 visual shots away from the 1,000 shots the film needs for its completion. The movie’s visual effects are now being supervised by Bill Westenhofer and Jeff White. Filming of the movie wrapped up in May last year. Now that it is entering its post-production phase, fans can expect a swarm of spoilers to flood the internet soon.

Speaking candidly to Wired, Jones admits that directing the film was not apiece of cake for him because he had to balance two factors equally – the film should entertain the devoted fans of the gaming franchise and encourage those who do not play “World of Warcraft” to watch the movie. Jones, a self-confessed fan of the game, details how he had a vision for the film and how that vision took a lot of time to materialize. But in the end, his biggest goal for the movie is to entice people and spark interest on the video game itself.

New game patch

Going back to the video game, Blizzard Entertainment has recently launched another update for the Fury of Hellfire 6.2 Patch which includes a new kingdom. The Inquisitr reports that the latest gameplay fix included the current expansion, War of Draenor’s final pack raid.

The video game’s latest development introduces gamers seven new and different weekend Bonus Events, two of which features Timewalking Dungeons – one in Outland dungeons for level 71 and higher characters, and another in Northrend dungeons for level 81 and above. Characters will also be scaled down to their level to allow Timewalking to old-school dungeons. Bug fixes for the previous version are also included in the update according to the game’s official website

An article from Youth Health Magazine highlights and details the major updates 6.22 Patch offers, citing the game’s stronghold and Hellfire Citadel top the list of fixes. The update allows work orders for tiers 2 and 3 function normally now even for Mac users. New achievements have also been made accessible to “World of Warcraft” players such as the Kazzak Guild Run.

Furthermore, traveling to dungeons and raids have been made more exciting now that tracking auras are no longer removable when players enter or leave a Timewalking Dungeon, something Blizzard told ardent gamers to prepare for.

Fans of the franchise have noticed that the latest pack of the game holds far less content than that of its previous releases. Despite new content releases for the current pack each week, no official announcement about a new pack getting underway again has been made. With this, fans worry and ask what’s next for the most subscribed online game in history.

Meanwhile, according to the International Business Times, premiere game developer Blizzard has announced that ‘Warlords of Draenor Arena and Battleground’ Season 2 has officially begun. The titleholders of the Alliance and Horde factions are being called in to represent them and clash among the best of the best for the ultimate victory.

Some adjustments had been made prior to the battle’s commencement – players who compete in the weekly Ashran Dominance quest, not to mention win the Rated Battlegrounds, will now receive a random piece of PvP iLvl 7630 Conquest gear. The gaming community has long expressed their anticipation for the latest season of ‘Warlords of Draenor Arena and Battleground.’
