Watch a deleted scene from the Warcraft movie

21 August 2016 12:37 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As it gears up for its home entertainment release next month, Universal has released a deleted scene from Duncan Jones’ video game adaptation Warcraft, which sees the Orcs discussing their leader Gul’dan’s magic; check it out here…

The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: Orc warriors fleeing their dying home to colonize another. As a portal opens to connect the two worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces extinction. From opposing sides, two heroes are set on a collision course that will decide the fate of their family, their people and their home. So begins a spectacular saga of power and sacrifice in which war has many faces, and everyone fights for something.

Chinese Twitter account teases Warcraft sequel

11 July 2016 4:39 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although Warcraft failed miserably at the U.S. box office, grossing just $24 million, the Duncan Jones-directed fantasy epic has performed rather well in China, helping to propel the film to a solid $430 million worldwide and making it the highest-grossing video game adaptation of all time.

Universal and Legendary had franchise hopes for the movie (hence the Warcraft: The Beginning title in some markets), and it seems that the international box office may just help that to become a reality.

On the official Chinese Twitter account, a message has been posted which reads: “Warcraft’s theatrical run is coming to an end. But the chapter of a new decade has just begun. It’s a starting point, not an end point. We don’t say goodbye now because we’ll meet you again.”

How Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA Became a Kung-Fu Fanatic

5 July 2016 11:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Filmmaker and hip-hop legend RZA made dreams come true for kung-fu fans on a recent Saturday night by programming a double feature of classic martial arts films “Five Element Ninjas” and “House of Traps” at New York’s Metrograph theater.

The original member of the Wu-Tang Clan made three appearances at the event and introduced the 1982 kung-fu titles, both of which were directed by prolific martial arts film director Cheh Chang and produced by Hong Kong’s legendary production company Shaw Brothers. “Five Element Ninjas” follows a young martial artist seeking revenge against the ninja who killed his teacher and brethren, while “House of Traps” centers on a team of skilled fighters making their way through a house rigged with deadly traps.

Both sold out screenings were packed with kung-fu cinema devotees, many of whom felt compelled to express their love for the genre during a Q&A with RZA, »

Warcraft crosses $400 million worldwide

27 June 2016 5:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following last week’s news that Duncan Jones’ big screen adaptation of Warcraft has become the biggest video game movie of all-time, it has unlocked another achievement.

Warcraft never really found its feet domestically, and has dropped out of the Top 10 after just three weeks (earning around $2 million over the weekend), and its domestic total of $43 million is much lower than the likes of other adaptations like Silent Hill, Resident Evil: Afterlife, Mortal Kombat and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.

However a fantastic campaign outside of the Us has pushed Warcraft over the $400 million mark to $412 million. If you go by the industry rule-of-thumb (that a movie needs to do 2.5x its budget in order to turn a profit), Warcraft is now making money. Expect to hear news of a sequel soon.

How Eli Roth Is Fostering the Next Generation of Indie Horror Directors

24 June 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Eli Roth is having a very good week. On Monday, the horror writer-director-producer officially signed on to direct the remake of the 1974 vigilante action film “Death Wish,” with Bruce Willis attached to star. Then on Tuesday, Roth landed a horror directing gig for the adaptation of the “Aleister Arcane” comic book, starring Jim Carrey in the lead role. As if that wasn’t enough, on Wednesday, the Jon Watts horror film “Clown” that Roth produced hit #1 on iTunes’s horror section. The film opened in theaters on June 17.

The story of a loving father who dresses up as a clown for his son’s birthday — only to find the suit is cursed and won’t come off — “Clown” famously started as a fake movie trailer Watts posted on YouTube that said “From master of horror Eli Roth” even though Roth had nothing to do with the project. He was so impressed with the trailer, »

Warcraft is now the biggest video game movie of all-time

20 June 2016 4:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week we reported how The Angry Birds Movie had become the second biggest video game movie of all-time and theorised it would overtake Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time in the coming weeks. Well it looks like we were a little off base as the worldwide screenings of Warcraft have propelled it to the number one position.

In its second week of domestic release Warcraft dropped an incredible 71% to only take just $6 million, failing to compete against horror sequel The Conjuring 2 and animated juggernaut Finding Dory. However the film is still playing amazingly overseas – in China especially – and it made another $41 million worldwide over the weekend. This brings its total to $377 million, finally knocking Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time from the number one position its held for so long.

The Angry Birds Movie is now the third biggest video game movie of all-time, sitting $10 million »

Common signs on for Black Samurai TV series

18 June 2016 9:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Variety is reporting that Common (Selma, Suicide Squad) has signed on to star in a TV adaptation of Black Samurai, which is being executive produced by RZA (The Man with the Iron Fists).

Black Samurai is based on the 70s book series from Marc Olden and “follows the story of Robert Sand (Common) who is rescued by a Japanese samurai master and trained for seven years. After suffering from vicious racism in the military, and seeing his teacher and fellow samurai killed before his eyes by terrorists, Robert Sand becomes a killing machine, out to destroy the corrupt powers who had taken the lives of his friends.”

Robert Sand is like black Jason Bourne,” states producer Andre Gaines. “Black Samurai is one of the most unique, timely and fun experiences I’ve ever read, while at the same time tackling some serious subjects around race and diversity. With John Wick 2 »

'Hard Target 2' Trailer: A Sequel to the Jean-Claude Van Damme Classic Comes Out of Nowhere

15 June 2016 7:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

There's a division at Universal Pictures that specializes in taking movies you probably grew up loving and making sequels fairly under the radar. Here's the twist, though: despite their straight-to-dvd nature, these movies usually aren't just quick, dumb cash-ins. They're polished productions that often exceed expectations. Granted they're not all winners (Kindergarten Cop 2 and Tremors 5: Bloodlines were a bit lackluster), but the Deathrace, Chucky, The Man With The Iron Fists , and Jarhead franchises have all gotten satisfying new sequels in recent years. And it's not just R-rated action movies, either. Curious George 3 and The Land Before Time Xiv are both solid kid's movies. Anyways, the point is these sequels seem to come out of...

Warcraft earns the second biggest opening in China ever with $46 million; passes $100 million worldwide

8 June 2016 8:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the weekend’s box office, we reported that Duncan JonesWarcraft (or Warcraft: The Beginning) had worked its way up to $70 million worldwide. Although some are theorising a pretty poor run domestically, it has performed exceptionally well in China.

After a whopping $7.6 million from midnight screenings, Warcraft brought home $46 million from its China opening according to first estimates. This is the second biggest opening for an American movie behind last year’s Furious 7, and it has vastly outperformed Avengers: Age of Ultron, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War. It could end up with $170-$200 million in China alone.

If the movie can keep up this pace oversees, the $160 million video game movie might see some sequels after all.

Warcraft opens this weekend in North America, and experts say it could earn upwards of $25 million with a projected total of $75 million. »

Warcraft movie earns $70 million at the box office ahead of its domestic release

6 June 2016 2:07 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having opened in several territories last week to $31 million, Duncan Jones Warcraft (or Warcraft: The Beginning) [read our review here] has doubled its box office in its second week of release.

The movie was released in several more international territories including Spain, Italy and a full release in the UK and brought its box office total to an estimated $70 million. With a budget of $160 million, this is still not a brilliant number.

Warcraft: The Beginning get its full domestic release next week which will be the tell-tale sign of the movie’s box office success. Reviews have not been kind and that will have some impact on the film’s performance. It’s going up against James Wan’s horror sequel The Conjuring 2 and Now You See Me 2, so it will be interesting to see if Warcraft can break out of the pack and prove Sequelitis.

Duncan Jones reveals that 40 minutes were cut from his Warcraft movie

2 June 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

One of the big sticking points from a lot of the critical drubbing of Duncan Jones’ movie adaptation Warcraft [read our review here] is the film’s break-neck pace. Well it turns out – as Luke and Oli theorised on the Flickering Myth Podcast last week – that around 40 minutes were cut from the movie.

In an interview with The Daily Beast, Jones reveals that his original cut of Warcraft (or Warcraft: The Beginning as its known elsewhere) was 2 hours 40 minutes, and this was trimmed down to 2 hours. One of the scenes to get cut? An Easter egg that would have tied Warcraft to his previous two movies Moon and Source Code.

“If you know Moon or Source Code, there’s this very sweet, very talented guy named Chesney Hawkes who wrote this really, really big hit in Britain called ‘I Am The One And Only,'” he jokes. “I used it as an alarm clock in Moon, »

Warcraft movie opens to $31 million worldwide

31 May 2016 12:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having opened in twenty territories over the weekend, Duncan Jones’ long-developed video game movie Warcraft: The Beginning (or just Warcraft in North America) has earned around $31 million.

The film debuted in territories such as Russia (where it earned the most), Germany, Sweden and limited screenings here in the UK. The film opens fully this coming weekend along with Italy, Netherlands and Spain and opens in North American on June 10th.

With a reported budget of $160 million, Warcraft will need to earn around $400 million if it is to be seen as profitable for Universal. Video game movies have a previous track record of performing quite poorly domestically but fairly well overseas so the studio might be banking on that success by opening it there first.

Paul W.S. Anderson’s Resident Evil series topped out at $240 million worldwide, while Disney’s Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time still holds the top spot with $336 million. »
