Duncan Jones talks about plans for Warcraft 2

I didn't like WARCRAFT. I thought it was clunky, miscast, and the effects were super uneven. But you know what? I respected the shit out of it.

While I don't feel it was successful, I admired the risks he took, like showing war from both sides, keeping the goofy designs of the Orcs from the game intact, and being truthful to the game's lore rather than dismissing it like most videogame adaptations do. Again, I...

Duncan Jones speaks candidly about Warcraft's failure and a sequel

WARCRAFT didn't exactly break the mold of video games-turned-films, but it does have its audience (mostly in China). Still, the film hardly churned out the profits studios were hoping for, and director Duncan Jones acknowledges as much in a recent interview with Thrillist . It's a good read, for those interested, and while he doesn't come out and bash WARCRAFT or anything...

It's a movie only a console could love: Practically every frame is filled to the brim with CG...
