Normally, I wouldn't be even remotely excited for a video game adaptation. Historically speaking, they've pretty much all been bad-to-mediocre in quality. However, Warcraft comes to us from Duncan Jones, whose Moon and Source Code are both great. He's earned the benefit of the doubt. Warcraft very well could be the first genuinely great video game movie.
Directed and written by Andrew Stanton. Produced by Lindsey Collins. Release date: June 17, 2016.
Look, we don't need another Finding Nemo movie. I don't even want one! But since we're getting one, and it is still Pixar, I think we're better off waiting to see if it's any good before outright hating it. The trailer makes it look at least okay, and I'm more than willing to give it a chance. Fingers are crossed.
