While it is hard to get any kind of expectations up for a video game related movie, having Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) in the directors chair for Warcraft raised the bar on what people were expecting. Unfortunately, or fortunately as the case may be for the studios bottom line, Warcraft only matched those expectations in China. US moviegoers bailed on the whole thing only shelling out $47 million at theaters on a big budget movie with a $160 million dollar budget. Worldwide the movie took in $386 million, mostly from China, saving Universal from a huge loss. Now we’ve got the Honest Trailer on Warcraft and as one would expect, the movie takes a Rocky like beating.
Let’s jump right in.
Ouch…. that line about the CGI characters having more emotional range then the human actors is a rough one. What did you think?
