Robbed of his birthright, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy - whether he likes it or not.

Early in the film, a murloc can be seen by a small stream. The noise it makes is the same as the creatures inside of World of Warcraft can be heard making. See more »
In this point in time, Dalaran would not be a floating city yet, it should still be located beside Lordamere lake, as the Kirin Tor only moved it at the beginning of the was against The Lich King. See more »
There has been a war between orcs and humans for as long as can be remembered. But there was once a time, when we did not even know who our enemy was. Or what that evil green magic, the fel, had done to us. But in the beginning, how could we have known? What choice did we have? Our world was dying. And I had to find my clan a new home.

Fans, bring your non-WoW playing family and friends.
Watched this movie in a IMAX 3D theater. The sound makes it well worth seeing in a theater with a state of the art sound system. The Orcs are believable from the start. Well rounded characters with great motivation. The motion capture work by the actors was a work of passion.
Ben Foster and Ben Schnetzer did a wonderful job playing the magic wielding Mages. Perfect depth, effort and really showing the strain magic has on the human body.
Paula Patton did a fantastic job with Garona. Duncan Jones made a compelling ass kicking female character.
But more important for the fanboys, feel comfortable bring non-WoW playing friends and families to the movie. All non-WoW movie goers seem to enjoy the movie and really liked the CGI.
