Warcraft: Durotan: The Official Movie Prequel

Warcraft-Durotan-The-Official-Movie-PrequelIn the world of Draenor, the strong and fiercely independent Frostwolf Clan are faced with increasingly harsh winters and thinning herds. When Gul’dan, a mysterious outsider, arrives in Frostfire Ridge offering word of new hunting lands, Durotan, the Clan’s chieftain, must make an impossible decision: abandon the territory, pride and traditions of his people, or lead them into the unknown.

An original tale of survival, conflict and magic that leads directly into the events of Warcraft, an epic adventure from Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures, based on Blizzard Entertainment’s global phenomenon.

Warcraft Movie – Lothar Spotlight Video

Legendary Pictures posted today a new 20-sec spotlight video featuring Sir Anduin Lothar (Travis Fimmel). We are very close, at 37 days before the Warcraft movie debuts in theathers. It’s possible that we might see spotlight videos for Garona, King Llane, Medivh and other characters. Call it a hunch. We’ll have to wait and see to proof or debunk that. Either way, the hype is real.

Update: Added my 1080HD video of the PAX East-Exclusive Warcraft Movie trailer. Apologies for the shaking. No tripod.

During my visit to PAX East, I attended the Warcraft Movie panel held by director Duncan Jones, Robert Kazinsky and Michele Morrow. At the end of the panel, the PAX East-exclusive Warcraft Movie trailer was played, showing 3 scenes of Iron Forge not seen in previous trailers.

2016 PAX East Warcraft Movie Panel

Director Duncan Jones and actor Rob Kazinski were interviewed onstage by BlizzCon-host Michele Morrow to discuss the production of the Warcraft Movie. The line to enter the theatre started around 2pm. After a while, everyone was led upstairs to the third floor, and aligned to sit on the ground while the theater was prepared for the Warcraft Movie panel.

 

The Boston Convention Center’s Main Theatre has a capacity for 3000 seats, and the room was definitely filled. Took a short 360° video of the Main Theatre.

BlizzCon 2015 Warcraft Movie Collectibles Unveiled

Many of our staff are at BlizzCon, and we wish to share with you photos of 22 new Warcraft Movie licensed products never seen before. Some of these are coming as soon as Spring 2016 or May 2016. Take a look at our 44 photos after the list (4 pages of photos).

CORRECTION: Originally, I reported all these products were from the WETA booth. I was informed of my mistake. There are four companies involved in the production of these Warcraft Movie Collectibles: WETA, Gentle Giant Ltd, Jakks Pacific, and Maybang’s Collectibles.

The following statues are produced by Gentle Giant Ltd: Gul’dan, Durotan, Orgrim and Lothar. The Gul’dan Skull Scale Replica 3D Print too. Pre-order them here.

BlizzCon 2015 – Warcraft Movie Official Gallery

Legendary Pictures added a photo gallery to the official Warcraft Movie website. You can watch the official movie trailer here.

The first photo shows us an amazing render of Durotan that resembles the Blizzard Cinematic Quality but realism has been pushed even further. I mean look at the realism of his hair and ponytails. On his shoulders you can see every single body hair hit by sunlight, contrasting against the darker background. I mean: HOLY SHIT? The handle of his weapon, the texture of the leather around the handle. The necklace. The ornamental wrappings with the fangs or claws. The scars on his body, the chest hair. This feels and breaths realism.

Legendary Released 15-sec Warcraft Movie Teaser

Below you can watch the Warcraft Movie Teaser and 15 screenshots taken from the video showing some never-before-seen frames from the movie. Look at that huge wolf jumping on a knight riding a horse, then get tossed off the horse with the footman’s head trapped in the wolf’s jaws.

NYCC 2015 – WETA Warcraft Movie Armor Props

WETA brought some of the armor and weapon sets used in the Warcraft Movie to New York Comic Con. In addition, the WETA Warcraft Movie 1:6 scale armor replicas to be sold in 2016 were displayed too.

Currently, WETA has announced the King Llane Armour and Alliance Soldier 1:6 scale armor replicas; and there was a NYCC Show Special sale of two collectable pins: Warcraft Horde and Alliance for $10 each.


Weapons & Armour

Working with designs supplied by LEGENDARY, WETA Workshop’s manufacturing team created working physical props and costumes. It was great fun to take weapons and armour out of the gaming realm and make them real!

84 full suits of gleaming armour were produced for the film’s royal guards and foot soldiers, along with hundreds of weapons and shields.

Hero suits and weapons were crafted for featured characters including King Llane Wrynn I.

Blades were made in both hero steel and lightweight materials. WETA’s paint team worked their magic, bringing real-world treatments and finishes to armour and weapons produced in lightweight materials so that real human actors could look awesome wielding huge weapons and wearing giant suits of gleaming armour!
