There’s not exactly a video game movie curse, it’s just that none of them have been good. Ever. But a glimmer of hope surfaced when Moon and Source Code director Duncan Jones signed on to direct Warcraft for Legendary Pictures, based on the insanely popular World of Warcraft game. The sprawling nature of WoW made the prospect of condensing the game into a satisfying standalone narrative challenging, but Jones stumbled on a basic idea that he thought would be the key: there are heroes and villains on both sides of the central Alliance vs Horde battle. The result is an epic, high fantasy film that creates a deep emotional connection to both sides of this war, and Jones and some cast members took the Hall H stage at Comic-Con today to reveal the first-ever extended look at the film.
