Early Reviews For Warcraft: The Beginning Are A Mixed Bag

17 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Emerging from a long and storied production, Legendary’s budding franchise-starter Warcraft: The Beginning is now starting to make its bow overseas, as fans prep for Duncan Jones’ live-action video game movie to touch down in the States on June 10.

After some confusion over the film’s embargo, early reviews for Jones’ lavish fantasy adventure have now surfaced online, and they range from moderately good, to average, to downright scathing.

Without further ado, here’s a collection of those reviews:

Variety: Imagine “Battlefield Earth” without the verve and you get this sludgy, tedious fantasy adventure, a fun-starved dud that’s not even unintentionally hilarious. The cast seems mostly adrift, with only Schnetzer giving what might be considered an actual performance. The usually reliable Foster is reduced to gadding about like a prog-rock Jesus in a series of robes that make him look like he’s posing for the side of someone’s van, »

‘Warcraft’ Review: Swords, Sorcery and Stupidity Abound in Game Adaptation

24 May 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Critics throw the term “soulless corporate filmmaking” around with abandon, but movies like “Warcraft” really manage to redefine the term. A film adaptation of the hugely popular Mmorpg (that’s Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game), this latest video game adaptation ranks near the bottom of the deadly genre. Imagine “Battlefield Earth” without the verve, or the unintentional comedy, and you’ve got “Warcraft.” With his first two films, “Moon” and “Source Code,” director Duncan Jones took high-concept science-fiction stories and spun them into taut tales that never lost sight of their characters or the toll of the extraordinary circumstances in which. »

Film Review: ‘Warcraft’

24 May 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The epic battle at the center of “Warcraft” isn’t the clash between humans and orcs. That’s just what takes up roughly two hours of screen time. The true conflict comes from filmmakers trying to tell a story with soul and struggling against the inherent ridiculousness of the commodity they’re working with. It shouldn’t take a mage to foresee that this pricey and preposterous adaptation of an online gaming phenomenon was preordained for artistic mediocrity.

With little concern for all those already perplexed at the mention of orcs and mages, “Warcraft” plunges headfirst into a fantasy realm teeming with mythical creatures, magical spells and exotically named characters and locations. It’s a take-it-or-leave-it approach likely to have most audience members opting for the latter, though devotees of the immersive role-playing source material may have an entirely different experience. If so, Universal will have to hope they storm »

Warcraft: The Beginning review

A great videogame adaptation at last, or another grind? Here’s our review of Duncan Jones’ action fantasy, Warcraft...

Gryphons. Dark magic. Orcs swinging colossal hammers that make Thor’s Mjolnir look like one of those little things your grandmother uses to smash up toffee. Based on the Blizzard videogames of the same name, Warcraft marks a considerable change of pace for Duncan Jones, who previously brought us the deliciously poignant Moon and the taut sci-fi thriller, Source Code.

If there’s a connecting thread between Warcraft and Jones’ earlier movies, it’s in its effervescent tone and clear affection for genre movies of the 60s, 70s and 80s. Where Moon lovingly referenced Silent Running or Outland, Warcraft appears to take its cue not from the blood-and-thunder fantasy of the trendy Game Of Thrones, but old-school fare like Beastmaster, Legend and the movies of Ray Harryhausen.

Azeroth Braces For Chaos In Stunning New Images For Warcraft: The Beginning

12 May 2016 7:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

World of Warcraft, Blizzard Entertainment’s monolithic and genre-defining Mmo (Massive Multiplayer Online game), is a mere two weeks away from gracing the big screen in the form of Duncan Jones’ budding franchise-starter, Warcraft: The Beginning.

Of course, wrangling a feature film out of such a rich and beloved universe hasn’t been easy, with early setbacks culminating in the abrupt departure of Sam Raimi, who had at one stage been attached to helm Legendary’s adaptation. Once The Evil Dead filmmaker made for the exit door, Warcraft plummeted in the depths of development limbo, and it wasn’t until the appointment of Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) that the long-gestating movie began to display a flicker of life.

The Hollywood Reporter has broken the news that actor James Norton (Rush, War & Peace) is joining the cast of the upcoming remake of 90’s sci-fi thriller Flatliners.

Norton is the latest actor to join the cast after Bad Neighbours 2 star Kiersey Clemmons was recently added to the ensemble earlier this month. Both join the already cast Ellen Page (Inception), Diego Luna (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries).

The original film, released in 1990 and directed by Joel Schumacher (Falling Down, Batman Forever), starred Julia Roberts, Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, Oliver Platt and William Baldwin as a group of medical students “who conduct near-death experiments to explore the afterlife to disastrous consequences.”

Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) is directing the film with Ben Ripley (Source Code) scripting. Michael Douglas (Ant-Man) is one of the film’s producers.

Flatliners is set for release »

New Warcraft Promo For Anduin Lothar 'The Warrior'

2 May 2016 10:43 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Do you plan on seeing Warcraft in theaters this June? Going by comments around these parts, skepticism is starting to turn into apprehensive optimism. The film certainly has a talented cast and director. The marketing appears to be hitting its stride as well, after a few questionable, early trailers. The video game adaptation will face competition at the box office from X-Men: Apocalypse (05/27), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (06/03),  The Conjuring 2 (06/10), Central Intelligence (06/17) and Finding Dory (06/17).  The film should perform very well overseas, as a large percentage of the remaining Warcraft fan base is located in China, the U.K. and South Korea.  The Warrior. #WarcraftMoviehttps://t.co/HWc1A0zZLn — #WarcraftMovie (@warcraftmovie) May 2, 2016 Warcraft arrives in theaters on June 10, 2016.

Mark Gordon to Produce ‘Fellini Black and White’

29 April 2016 2:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mark Gordon will finance and produce “Fellini Black and White,” a drama that imagines Italian film icon Federico Fellini’s 1957 visit to Los Angeles.

The project had been in development with the late Henry Bromell attached to direct from his own script before Bromell died in 2013. Mad Chance’s Andrew Lazar and Wynn Wygal had been developing the project with the Yari Film Group and remain as producers.

Bromell’s script, which appeared on the 2005 Black List, speculates what might have happened to the filmmaker during the two days before the Oscars, where Fellini received the best foreign language film award for “Nights of Cabiria.” Three other Fellini films — “La Strada,” “8 1/2” and “Amarcord” — also won the foreign language Academy Award.

Terrence HowardPeter DinklageWilliam H. MacyWagner MouraNina Arianda and Abbie Cornish were previously set to star in the film. No actors or directors are currently attached.
