Warcraft - June 10


Fleeing their dying home to colonize another, fearsome orc warriors invade the peaceful realm of Azeroth. This is the plot of the uber popular video game that started wreaking havoc on gamer consoles in the mid-1990s. Alright, we love Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper is cool...Heck, we have no problem with the cast, but with a $100 million price tag, that could make this film making its money back a tall order. First of all, it has been documented that Universal is a bit skiddish on the film's chances. Secondly, the look of the film, namely the CGI, has been called into question. It's still early in the game, so it could be that we have the next Avatar on our hands. Warcraft may eventually prove itself to be the film that its fans have been waiting for. However, $100 million is a lot to gamble if it indeed is not.
