To illustrate this point, Tull recounted a story where he and Superman star Brandon Routh were flying on a plane together. As Tull was sealing the Warcraft deal over the phone, Routh asked, "Wait a minute, you know the Warcraft guys? Can you get me a tour of the Warcraft thing?"
For those worried about green blood and toned-down content, Tull reassured the fans that the movie won't be rated PG. Shouts of "RRRRRRRR!" echoed throughout the hall, until Tull finally elaborated on the subject, hinting that PG-13 is a likely compromise.
"I can tell you that this is the one thing about running a studio and making these things that's hard," he said. "You want to not compromise and have the right level of intensity. The story and the director's vision is what's ultimately gonna dictate that. Personally one of my favorite movies of all time is Lord of the Rings, which has a PG-13 rating." Just as fans were standing to leave their seats, Tull unveiled a surprise: the first concept art from pre-production, depicting the elven home of Teldrassil.
"Honestly, the story that we're running with at this point, we wanted it to be relevant to the experience of WoW players"
Sweeeeet. A story of people being ganked!
cool so it will be a 12 hour movie of people picking flowers, mining for ore, attacking the same monster over and over again and taking his insignias?
will they show the 'guild leader' after a big boss fight go through a checklist to see who has the most points, award his weapon or armor to the hunter and show all the other rogues from the fight cry about it going to a hunter?
It will be subtitled: Hntrpwr :)
doodsasafert: hey fgt comie on folw me
lordaslburn: lte's go gank n00bz
doodasafert: hells yeah nigga
horrible nature of the game and community aside I actually think a movie could be cool since their cg usually kicks butt (and has nothing to do with the people who play the game)
I can't wait! Hopefully it will have goldspammers, goldfarmers, and people who blame others for their own mistakes!
somehow i was reminded of the one sided fist fights from robot chicken.
I love blizz's cinematics, i hope its all like that
