Blizzard Entertainment invited Blizzplanet among other fansites and influencers to attend the Warcraft Movie Premiere event in Hollywood, California. Dperschonok and TheRedShirtGuy mingled with Robert Kazinsky, Jaime Lee Curtis, Leeroy Jenkins, AliciaMarie, and other personalities at the event. Here are some of the photos:
The Warcraft Movie by director Duncan Jones was produced with a budget of $160 million. As of June 13, The Box Office reports the Warcraft Movie has made $26,036,570 here in the United States, and $280,500,000 Overseas for a total of $306,536,570 Worldwide. WARCRAFT is currently ranked #2 in the United States with an average of $7.1 million per day.
It is laughable how some respected “journalists” who acknowledge not to have played the Warcraft video games haven’t taken a look at past Fantasy-live action films for number-comparison before writing a review to call WARCRAFT a Box Office Flop or Bomb.
In the wake of such bad Warcraft Movie reviews from critics, who likely never played the game, Inverse writer Sean Hutchinson reached out to me to research opinions from World of Warcraft gamers to share those thoughts with the general public who doesn’t know anything about Warcraft.
You may read Inverse’s article which quoted some of my thoughts on the Warcraft film a day before I watched it at the Cinema.
Not everything was used for the article, so I wish to share with our audience the full document with my responses:
The Warcraft Movie Premiere Event Livestream begins at 5:30pm Pacific Time. Michele Morrow and Jesse Cox are the hosts of the event where they will talk with director Duncan Jones.
Two Blizzplanet staff members were invited to the media event: Dpershonok & TheRedShirtGuy. We’ll have some videos and photos later on. Follow us on Twitter for a heads up. Watch the embeded video after the break.
Today, Director Duncan Jones, Travis Fimmel (Lothar), Paula Patton (Garona), and Toby Kebbell (Durotan) unveiled the amazing Warcraft figures at the Madame Tussauds (London).
Fans who watch the Warcraft Movie at the qualifying Regal Cinemas will get a game code to get a digital copy of World of Warcraft for FREE. This promo is obviously aimed at movie viewers of the Warcraft Movie who have never played the game, as an intro to expand their experience after the cinema. This specific offer is for USA residents, however, Blizzard posted the same offer for many other countries in Europe, Asia and Oceania listed here.
The game code can be redeemed at the following page: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/promotions/movie.
The Collider visited Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) to unravel the magical process used to transform the actors into powerful and realistic CGI orcs. Interestingly, ILM also provided King Magni and a female Draenei.
Collider also posted another article where they list 50 things to know about the Warcraft film. Worth a read.
Usually, I hunt online searching for the latest Warcraft Movie interviews. This time around, Arclight Cinemas reached out to inform us about their interview. How awesome is that?
Arclight interviewed Robert Kazinsky, and he bleeds pure love for his role as Orgrim Doomhammer and you can see his passion as a World of Warcraft gamer come forth in this interview. Robert praised the film direction, and wishes to work with Duncan Jones forever, if he allows so.
The link in their Youtube page led me to the Arclight Cinemas website, where I found photos taken during the interview.
Recently, Duncan Jones and the Warcraft Movie staff talked to the press to promote the movie. Use the list navigation (to the left of the video) to switch from one interview to the next. Among those interviewed are:

Duncan Jones and Robert Kazinsky (Orgrim Doomhammer) went to Russia to promote the Warcraft Movie among the 2016 Epicenter eSports audience. The interview starts around 0:03:06. The trailer can be seen in the two videos after the break.
Madame Tussauds posted in Twitter that today you can order tickets to the premiere of the Warcraft Experience. The video shows the making of the Lothar, Garona, and Durotan wax statues.
Madame Tussauds is also giving away 15 tickets for the premiere launch. Participate here.
ScreenSlam interviewed Travis, Paula and Toby to discuss the shooting of the Warcraft Movie. They were amazed at the fine details of the armor, weapons, props, and the massive locations built for the shooting of the film.
This new product was shown in Duncan Jones’ recent Periscope video. This box of candies is a lmited edition that comes in two flavors: Chewy Cherry Cinnamon Flavored Candies and Fierce Cinammon Hot Tamales candies.

Two powerful candy brands join forces to bring NEW Warcraft Battle Blend – combining the fierce cinnamon flavor of HOT TAMALES® and the fruity cherry flavor of MIKE AND IKE® to create one uniquely delicious chewy cherry cinnamon flavored candy. Available for a limited time only!
Comicbook.com got ahold of the Warcraft Movie TV Spot # 11. This new Warcraft Movie TV Spot reveals a character that Duncan Jones has never discussed at BlizzCon, SDCC nor PAX East. It’s an elder woman with a shadowy semblance.
The long wait is over. You can now pre-order your Warcraft Movie Tickets online to go to a theater near you. Simply add your zipcode, click on “See All Theaters + Movie Times.,” and pick the desired viewing time from the schedule.
The Warcraft Movie will be on theaters in USA on June 10th, but some theaters have early viewing on June 8th. Keep an eye on those. The movie is available in IMAX 3D. I got my tickets online.
Legendary Pictures posted the Soundtrack to Universal Pictures’ WARCRAFT. The Soundtrack is also available digitally on Back Lot Music in the Soundcloud. The Album will be in stores on June 10th.
Legendary Pictures recently posted the Warcraft Movie Khadgar spotlight video where we see Khadgar spellcasting arcane and fire spells in all its glory. The video clip also shows these characters: King Llane, Garona, Lothar, Gul’dan and Durotan.
Each spotlight video has a description of each of the heroes. In this case, Khadgar is dubbed “The Seeker.” A mage is known to seek knowledge to hone and grow his magical skills. There is a scene where Khadgar is in the Karazhan library. The tower seen in one of the screenshots below is most definitely The Tower of Karazhan.
Legendary Pictures posted yesterday a new spotlight video, and my hunch was right. It seems Legendary plans to release a spotlight video for each character leading up to the official launch date in theaters this June 10.
Today’s spotlight features Garona Halforcen, played by Paula Patton. This spotlight shows off how kickass Garona really is. Paula excelled in her combat skills like a pro, and this is just a short clip. Makes you crave to see more of her action in the film.
One doesn’t find champion women often in movies. The big screen often portrays damsels in distress, but the Warcraft movie is going to show a brave, agile, fearless, and powerful woman.
The long wait is over for Christie Golden fans. Random House and Blizzard Entertainment have released Warcraft: Durotan: The Official Movie Prequel in Mass-Market Paperback and digital formats.
Yes, you can read it on your Tablet, Kindle or PC. I got mine delivered to my Kindle PC as seen below. There are various Kindle apps to choose from: Android, iOS, PC, Kindle device, or the cloud reader for internet browser.
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.
