‘Warcraft’ Comic-Con Trailer Impressions

23 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

There’s currently a growing trend amongst Hollywood studios to put directors of hit low-budget & independent sci-fi films at the helm of big-budget blockbusters. Gareth Edwards (Monsters) recently scored a hit at the box office with Godzilla and has been put in charge of one of Disney’s Star Wars spinoffs. Josh Trank (Chronicle) has graduated from a found footage superhero movie to the reboot of Fantastic Four. Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) directed this year’s critically-acclaimed sci-fi sequel/prequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Then, of course, there’s Moon director Duncan Jones and his long-awaited World of Warcraft adaptation, Warcraft.

The first full-length trailer for Warcraft made its debut during Legendary’s presentation at San Diego Comic-Con 2014, and Duncan Jones was also present to talk about how far the film has come since the short ...

‘Crimson Peak’ Comic-Con Trailer Impressions

30 July 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Out of all the major studios that were present at San Diego Comic-Con 2014, it surprisingly wasn’t Marvel or Warner Bros. that had the most new announcements, but Legendary. Godzilla 2 got officially confirmed with a video message from director Gareth Edwards and a teaser trailer showing grainy old footage with the vague shapes of Mothra, Rodan and Ghidorah, and King-Kong prequel movie Skull Island was also announced via teaser that, at first, looked deceptively like Jurassic World footage.

These two announcements bookended a presentation packed with trailers for other upcoming Legendary movies, including Michael Mann’s hacker thriller Black Hat and Duncan JonesWarcraft. The horror genre also got its moment in the spotlight as John and Drew Dowdle ...

Warner Brothers Launches a New Franchise with 'Dragonriders'

30 July 2014 7:31 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Harry Potter had a “Hungarian Horntail.” The Hobbit has “Smaug the Stupendous.” Warner Brothers has struck gold twice with its heroes facing off against the flying, scaled beasts. Now, Warners is betting big that dragons can be allies, hoping to launch a new franchise after the studio optioned the rights to the bestselling novel series, Dragonriders of Pern.

Dragonriders first debuted in 1967 by author Anne McCaffrey. In the decades since, the hugely successful sci-fi series has spawned 22 novels and a handful of short stories.

The series plays out like a World of Warcraft game. Inhabitants of a pre-industrial society called Pern are divided into four classes — Weyrfolk (dragonriders), Holders (city-dwellers), Crafters (tradesmen), and Holdless (travelers and vagrants).

Pernese are primarily threatened by the Thread, a dangerous spore that rains down on the planet and eviscerates organic material, including plants, animals and humans.

To combat the spore, the Weyrfolk ride intelligent, »

28 July 2014 3:52 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

One of the most anticipated titles at Legendary's Hall H Comic-Con panel was Warcraft, of course based on the massively popular series of role-playing games of the same name. The film's director, Duncan Jones, was in attendance, and although the panel was fairly short, the audience got to see an early glimpse of what's in store. (Last year they brought along a short teaser before casting had even commenced, but that's Legendary's style.) - Jones name-dropped two films - Avatar and Lord »

27 July 2014 9:43 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

On Saturday, Legendary Entertainment presented in Hall H its future film line-up with some added surprises, franchise announcements and special guests.

In addition to Godzilla director Gareth Edwards’ video thank you message to the fans at Comic-Con, where the re-imagination of Godzilla was first introduced in 2012, Legendary CEO Thomas Tull presented what is to come for the iconic monster and the cinematic universe that Legendary is creating.

Joining Godzilla in future franchise installments will be several other classic monsters from Toho Co., Limited, including three of the most popular monsters from the Godzilla universe: Rodan, Mothra, and the formidable King Ghidorah. During the panel it was also announced that filmmaker Edwards will direct the sequel to Godzilla after he finishes his installment in the expanded Star Wars franchise.

Future Godzilla installments will, however, be distributed by Warner Bros., Legendary’s partner on the first film in that revitalized franchise.

Warcraft Teaser Trailer Promises “Lord Of The Rings Meets Avatar”

27 July 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While Comic Con has certainly been a battle between Marvel and DC properties, with Legendary Pictures scoring some sweet Godzilla hype as well, filmmaker Duncan Jones (Moon) had an Ace up his sleeve for Con attendees who have chomping at the bit to see footage from his upcoming Warcraft movie. It’s been years since the project was announced, but this year’s San Diego Comic Con has finally shed some light on the heralded property, as Jones released the first action-packed teaser trailer – and people seemed to dig it.

While we don’t have the actual video of the teaser trailer, /Film has posted a description of the fantasy world Jones has created in detail:

We start with a room full of Alliance weapons. Swords, shields and more. “I’ve spent more time protecting my king than my own son,” a character says in voiceover. Lots of men in Armor and some banners. »

Warcraft Motion Logo and Trailer Description - Sdcc 2014

27 July 2014 | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Director Duncan Jones presented som incredible footage at Comic-Con today for Legendary Pictures' upcoming movie Warcraft. The film is currently deep in post-production, and there's still a ton of work that needs to be done to finish the film, but that didn't stop them from showing off a short teaser to get the fans at Comic-Con pumped up to see the movie.

The footage that was shown included narration from two leaders from different clans, the human side and the orc side. What's interesting about this is that neither one seems like a villain. It shows that the movie will be an origin story of sorts that will examine the events and characters that lead to the conflict between the two races, and we'll see it from both of their perspectives — similar to how they portrayed the warring sides in Dawn of Planet of the Apes.

The human leader is played by Travis Fimmel, »

Duncan Jones has unveiled the first footage from his much-anticipated Warcraft adaptation. Comic-Con attendees got a brief but enticing look at the fantasy epic, which isn’t due for release until 2016. Even so, the teaser shown looked as polished as the shields and swords that featured in its opening shot of an Alliance armoury. Cue voiceover: “I’ve spent more time protecting my king than my own son… does that make me loyal, or a fool?” Cut to images of Alliance soldiers, followed by shots of Orcs and more voiceover:...

At the start of the panel, Legendary head Thomas Tull thanked Hall H for getting behind box office hit Godzilla and segued into a message of similar gratitude from Gareth Edwards, on site in san Francisco for Untitled Star Wars Project.

“As soon as that’s done I will be back on Godzilla,” said Edwards. Hall H then saw a montage that revealed three iconic characters set to join the sequel and drew a crescendo of roars from the masses: Rodan, Mothra »

Legendary’s 2016 Mystery Film Revealed: A King Kong Skull Island Movie

26 July 2014 3:39 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

So much for those Namor rumors tied to a 2016 event picture! There were more details coming from Legendary’s Comic-Con panel this afternoon in San Diego, including footage of Michael Mann’s “Black Hat,” Duncan Jones’ “Warcraft,” and teaser footage and announcements from Gareth Edwards’ “Godzilla 2.” Perhaps most notably, Legendary announced plans to release a new King Kong movie. There were not many details beyond a possible, unconfirmed “King Kong: Skull Island” title, and a press release that read: “Previous works have touched on the island, but exploring this mysterious and dangerous place offers Legendary the opportunity to take audiences deeper inside this rich world with a style and scope that parallels other Legendary productions. The film will be released on November 4, 2016.” Slated for a November 4, 2016 release, this is the Legendary mystery movie that many had believed would be a superhero tentpole featuring Marvel Comic's very first character, »

26 July 2014 3:12 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

While no one can deny the appeal of Guillermo del Toro’s return to horror with Crimson Peak, there was an overriding reason why Hall H was standing-room only this afternoon and it was Duncan JonesWarcraft. Jones himself was on hand to introduce the presentation, telling fans a little bit about the context for the film.“There is an awful lot to draw on from Warcraft,” he said. “In this case I think it really merits an origin story. We want to show how the world of Azeroth falls into conflict between orcs and humans.”The first teaser for the film made its debut, opening on an Alliance armoury, bristling with swords, pikes and lion-crested shields. “I’ve spent more time protecting my king than my own son,” says a voice. “Does that make me loyal or a fool?” We cut to ranks of Alliance soldiers including Travis Fimmel seated on a throne. »

Title teaser for Warcraft, plus Sdcc footage description

26 July 2014 3:11 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This afternoon, Legendary Pictures took the opportunity to showcase director Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) showcased footage from his forthcoming fantasy epic Warcraft, and while that footage probably won’t see the light of day online, Legendary has released an incredibly brief title teaser video, which you can watch here…

And via Screen Rant, here’s a brief description of the footage that was shown today:

The Warcraft teaser that followed was narrated by both a human and an Orc from the film (each seemed to be reading from their war diaries), indicating that the movie will very much examine what leads to the conflict between the two races from both of their perspectives (think Dawn of the Planet of the Apes). Most of the footage was focused on depicting the various environments and landscapes of Azeroth, there was also some material teasing actual battle sequences involving the two clans. »

"Warcraft," "Crimson Peak," "Hellboy 3" Teased

26 July 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the briefest bits of Legendary's Comic Con panel this afternoon was the premiere of the first trailer for "Warcraft," filmmaker Duncan Jones' upcoming movie adaptation of the popular online role-playing video game which is still over a year from release.

Jones says the plot deals with the origin of the conflict in Azeroth between humans and orcs, and they're going with an origin to make what is essentially high fantasy accessible to everyone. Described as "Avatar" meets "The Lord of the Rings," the trailer then showed a lot of human vs. Orc violence ranging from sword fights to lightning shooting from people's hands in very colorful environs.

The company has also released an animated version of the logo which you can see below.

Guillermo del Toro was also on hand to showcase his gothic romance thriller "Crimson Peak". The film's trailer begins with Tom Hiddleston's voiceover »

Monster Madness! Legendary Announces Godzilla 2 & a New King Kong Project

26 July 2014 2:11 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

If you're a fan of monster movies (like me), then you'll be pretty happy with what happened during Legendary's Sdcc panel.  As rumored, they announced Godzilla 2 and even confirmed that Gareth Edwards will be returning to direct it.  Better yet, they even revealed which monsters will be making an appearance this time that classic Godzilla fans should be happy about.  Need more movie monster action?  A new King Kong project is in the works that will take us back to Skull Island.  Come inside to learn more!

I love monster movies.  Always have, and probably always will.  So I'm pretty happy that the genre has been seeing something of a resurgence lately.  I thoroughly enjoyed this year's Godzilla and can't wait to see what they plan on doing with the character next.  Since Gareth Edwards is working on a Star Wars film for 2016, we might not see Godzilla 2 for a while, »
