    It's as if billions of geeks cried out and were suddenly silenced. Guess they went back to the World of Warcraft.

    i used to play wow religiously and i just dont see it being a movie. theres too much detail and if they really think they can cram all if it into a couple hours its gonna be terrible.
    if they do it like a series of movies then yeah it should be interesting. but do you know how many fanboys are gonna bitch when they dont get to see 'so and so' character or 'this and that' item in the first movie.

    all in all it could be very interesting but it could totally be an epic failure if they let the fans run the show.

    Why is everyone assuming that it will be a WoW movie? Personally I have a strong feeling that it will be a retelling of the first Warcraft.

    Yeah this. The Warcraft universe has been around for eons before WOW. Legend of the Seeker gave me reason to trust Rami with Fantasy.

    Don't forget, Raimi and Co. did Hercules and Xena...so we know he can handle this better than say, Uwe Boll.

    I may have to wait for this on DVD, though. the idea of a theater filled with so many middle aged virgins terrifies me, lol.

    Yeah, and as much as I enjoyed the Xena and Herc series, he stepped it up in Seeker, with stronger production value, and a little less cheese.

    Why is everyone assuming it will be a retelling of any sorts? I'm willing to bet it will be an original Warcraft story with established warcraft characters playing supporting roles.

    "Looks like WoW Movie is going to MEGA FAIL

    Thats the number one reason why this movie is going to MEGA FAIL.
    There's so many devoted gamers and real time stragety fans out there that if they make the movie, everyone is going to be ticked off cause they didn't do this and they didn't include this item

    I think if Raimi does it right, it'll do awesome.

    Warcraft took a lot from Tolkien's Lord of the Rings ... if Raimi does it right, he'll have a similar look and feel to Lord of the Rings, but with a much better engaging story. Where the Orcs come from the Dark Portal and invade ... though they'd probably do a better job starting somewhere in the middle, like using the first Warcraft storyline as a backdrop/flashback/set-up and using the story from Warcraft 2.

    Though the story of Warcraft 3 would be the most "zomg" visually ... with Arthas, the Chosen One, becoming the dreaded Lich King and basically thrashing the world before retreating to Northrend.

    they'll need a prologue before the title screen, probably the events of Warcraft, then go into an original story set around the time of Warcraft 3, with Arthas already the Lich King as your big bad..

    but who will go see it? Those people are addicted to that game, unless the theater has a wi-fi spot.
