Part of the first trailer for the Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) directed Warcraft movie has leaked online, and you can check it out above. As you’d expect, the footage is full of orcs and humans engaged in battle, and even in this low-quality version, some of the shots look pretty damn impressive.
The Sdcc footage that leaked a while back was criticized for being (or rather, looking) far too CGI-heavy, but seeing some of the human characters integrated into the fantasy surroundings here does make things seem a little more… well, real. While this is only a small tease of what’s to come, it’s certainly a tantalizing one.

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.
Without further ado, here's what's coming up...
One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »
The time between 2014 and 2015 can truly be said to be the year that Jake Gyllenhaal conquered the Hollywood. Pulling off his most incredible physical transformations yet, for the independent thriller Nightcrawler and the Antoine Fuqua drama Southpaw, the actor has unleashed the first of several intense performances due to hit our screens within a short period. Sure, he’s been Oscar nominated before, but this is what it looks like when a highly skilled performer reaches the point in his career where his talent matches the quality of projects available. The result is thrilling cinema, every time out of the gate.
This is not something that happens overnight, however. While Gyllenhaal now seems to be everywhere – attached to many new projects with his new-found, hard-earned ubiquity – the actor has reached this point through a long, careful process of intriguing storytelling, through which he has meticulously developed his skill. Planting his »

As Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation makes its way into cinemas, Tom Cruise has attended the New York premiere for the movie, as part of his publicity duties for it. And chatting to MTV at said premiere, the question of last year's Edge Of Tomorrow came up. Specifically: is there a possibility of a sequel?
Turns out there is.
"I pitched it to [Christopher] McQuarrie and Doug [Liman]", he said, referring to the writer and director of the movie. "We were there one night and I was like, I've got an idea for it". Naturally enough, he's not spilling just what that idea was. He did reveal that he's spoken to his Edge Of Tomorrow co-star Emily Blunt about the project too, but that she said to him "give me another year, please".
Heading into cinemas in June 2016 is the first new Duncan Jones movie since 2011. The Moon and Source Code helmer has been working on bringing the videogame Warcraft to the big screen since early 2013, and has just about done on the movie. In fact, he may be filming his fourth full-length feature, Mute, between now and Warcraft's release.
Chatting to Jones earlier this month were our chums at Den Of Geek Us, who joined a round table discussion with the director. And he confirmed that he was looking to make a trilogy of Warcraft movies.
"I personally worked very closely with Chris Metzen [Blizzard's senior vice president of storytelling and franchise development]. We worked out that if we did get a chance to do three films to tell the story, this would be the first piece and we kind »
It came down to something of a photo finish, but Walt Disney Studios' "Ant-Man" held on to the top spot at the box office for the second weekend in a row. Newcomer "Pixels," which was expected to take the crown, ended up making just $765,000 less and Marvel's miniature hero remained on top. "Ant-Man" dropped an Ok 56.7% from its initial frame earning $24.7 million for $106 million overall domestic. At this point it is just $8 million ahead of where "The Incredible Hulk" was during its run in 2008. That Marvel Studios and Universal Studios collaboration ended up with $134.8 million. At this point, it appears as though "Ant-Man" will top out around $150 million domestic. "Pixels" opened to a flat studio estimate of $24 million which likely means it will come in under when actuals are released on Monday. Sony Pictures attempted to hide polarizing star Adam Sandler's involvement, but the marketing may have had »

Jake Gyllenhaal burst onto the scene in Richard Kelly‘s Donnie Darko and has to have one of the most interesting and diverse careers in Hollywood. He’s done quirky (Nightcrawler), romantic comedy (Love and other Drugs), science fiction (Source Code) and action (The Prince of Persia). Some films have been more successful than others, but for us Gyllenhaal is never better than when he’s got a meaty script and weighty character to sink his teeth into.
This week he stars as boxer Billy Hope in Antoine Fuqua‘s Southpaw. The story follows Hope’s struggle to regain his life and title after a tragic personal loss. Gyllenhaal gives a juggernaut of a performance in the film and we jumped at the opportunity to speak with him about the role.

Even the most effective film adaptations of video games have been average at best so far, which means any filmmaker tackling one is certainly taking a risk. One such person out to change the perception regarding the genre is filmmaker Duncan Jones ("Source Code," "Moon") with his next project "Warcraft".
Coming off a successful promotion of the film at this year's San Diego Comic Con, Jones says he thinks he understands why others have failed in this genre, how it could be fixed, and why "Warcraft" will avoid the issue. He tells io9:
"As soon as I saw David Fincher make a movie out of Facebook, I felt like anything is possible. The source of your material is not necessarily going to dictate whether you can make a good movie. It's finding an element of truth in it, or a thread which you can build a story around.

As far as high concepts go, Ben Kingsley and Ryan Reynolds playing the same person isn't a bad start. But this switcherooo turns out to be one of the least distracting elements of Tarsem Singh's slick, silly sci-fi Self/less, which gets a running start with smart ideas it can't follow through on.
Kingsley is Damian Hayes, a haughty and emotionally detached real estate tycoon with terminal cancer. Desperate to survive at any cost, he crosses paths with a shadowy scientist (Matthew Goode on enjoyably snakelike form) who offers him a radical new procedure known as shedding, whereby his consciousness is transferred into a healthy, lab-grown new body. What do I have to lose, he asks himself, because presumably he's never heard of Faust.
With several of the big trailers shown at the San Diego Comic-Con leaking over the past few days, it was starting to look like Legendary had managed to keep its upcoming fantasy epic Warcraft under wraps. Alas, it wasn’t to be, as the footage has now arrived online – albeit in awful quality. Watch it here, but move fast, as it probably won’t stay online for long…

Directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) and written by Charles Leavitt and Duncan Jones, the film is a Legendary Pictures, Blizzard Entertainment and Atlas Entertainment production.

For the second consecutive year, director Duncan Jones brought a sizzle reel for his upcoming Warcraft to San Diego Comic-Con, and for the second consecutive year, said footage remained locked behind closed doors. However, in keeping with this year’s trend of leaked trailers, a bootleg version of the clip from this year’s show has appeared online, showcasing the director’s mystical, expansive take on Azeroth.
As one would expect, it’s shot from an obscure angle, and while it isn’t a fair indication of the final product – visually or aurally – the video above does at least illustrate some of the special effects that we can expect from Legendary’s blockbuster.

Finding the Legendary booth on the floor of the main exhibition hall at Comic-Con is always fairly easy, because they don't do things by half-measures. This year, all you had to do was look for Ogrim, the giant Orc wielding the massive Doomhammer, and that's exactly where I found Duncan Jones, director of next June's "Warcraft." Google Cardboard struck a deal with Legendary to help them create a very nice viewer for the new Legendary Vr app that was being demoed at the booth. I got to run through all three of the experiences that they've put together, one of which was clearly based directly on last year's full-sized Jaeger Pilot exhibit. They've also created a "Crimson Peak" experience which is one long walk down a haunted hallway in the bones of the home that serves as the focus of Guillermo Del Toro's new film. Finally, they've created a »

The first trailer for the Warcraft movie isn't arriving until November. Here are some posters to tide you over...
It feels like a long, long time since we had a new Duncan Jones movie, and by the time his movie of Warcraft finally makes it to our screens next year, five years will have passed since Source Code. The upside is that in 2016, we may end up with two new films from the director, courtesy of his decision to try and press ahead with another project as well, Mute. Details of that here.
At San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend, one or two more details were released about the upcoming Warcraft movie, which is now due next June. We're not getting a trailer, for instance, until November, although some footage was shown of the new feature.
What we do have though is a pair of new posters for the film »

Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) is jumping into the realm of the video game adaption with Warcraft, and two new Comic-Con poster have come our way, showing off the two warring factions at the heart of this no doubt visually stunning adventure flick based on the massive universe created by Blizzard Entertainment: the human Alliance and the orc warriors of the Horde.

I wouldn’t be what you call the biggest Warcraft fan, I played the original real time strategy games back in the day, but the online behemoth that is World of Warcraft has passed me by.

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.
