So the most successful MMORPG has finally gotten it's own movie: Warcraft.
But it's technically not based on World of Warcraft, but on the RTS which spawned it all: Warcraft.
Now I only played Warcraft 2 for about two weeks (really addictive game), and never played WoW, but I knew those games included a rich back story and was willing to give any movie a chance.
Starring Ben Foster, Ben Schnetzer, Dominic Cooper (from Preacher!), Paula Patton, and Travis Fimmel (from Vikings!), can they spawn a movie franchise?
Yes they can!
For some reason this movie didn't make a lot of money (relatively) in the USA, but more than made up for that internationally, so we should see at least one sequel.
The story wasn't cookie-cutter fantasy, and seemed to have a lot of homages to the game.
WATCH IT, and marvel at how scary strong orcs are!!
