You think with all the Billions of dollars World of Warcraft and Starcraft have generated that Blizzard would have made a Starcraft movie by now!!!

But instead they just keep trolling us with these trailers utilizing such good technology!

Can we get a MOVIE PLEASE?

Do you have any idea how much will it cost to make a full CGI movie, not to mention it'll be counter productive financially.

Yeh I do seeing how each Transformers movie had a Budget of $300m or less and they used a Mega Load of CGI!

I have to say this every time, a fully length CGI movie would cost to much money,the 5 minutes CGI trailers you see for games and expansions take up to a year to create, even if they hired 20 times there staff the cost would be far to high for a movie. Though with the VFX industry less than 4-6 months away from dieing they may be able to afford plenty of employee from rhythm and hues and pay them with food.

such good technology? this was rather poor... to a point to which I doubt it's even blizzard who made it.

but yes, I want a starcraft movie at the quality of their cinematics

I think what happened is they got 1 of the CGI art department guys to work on it and that was it, i mean it's better then what some people would do but the tracking is horrible but that's expected, blizzard doesn't need a professorial tracker and i think most of the shots tracked well accept for the banshee one at the beginning. The work was probably done in 3-7 days and tbh is pretty good job with he time constraints.

The thought of Blizzard making a Starcraft movie like this...makes me giddy like a little schoolgirl.

Why the hell wasn't I aware we apparently already have battlecruisers as of March 4th?
