A great live action videogame movie is long overdue, so I’ve got high hopes for Warcraft. Some of the effects need a little work, but this trailer is full of dazzling stuff.
Since the end of The Hobbit series I’ve been itching for my next dose of epic fantasy – maybe it’s arrived. I’m excited by the possibilities of good Orcs, a nuance Tolkien never explored.
My 14-year-old self would be hugely excited by the concept, but this trailer feels very much about hitting all the familiar beats. The scene with the tearful Orc looks visually impressive though.
It’s hard for me to get excited about the emo Orcs on show here. Bursting with more CGI than I’ll ever need and clichés-aplenty, this has a very Lord Of The Rings-lite vibe.
