How the Warcraft movie makes one film out of a universe of stories

GamesBeat: "World of Warcraft has a ... problem,” director Duncan Jones said, “in that it’s got so many stories. It’s been going for 10 years, and Warcraft itself has been going for 20 years. Our challenge was to actually drill down and find a story that would work as a single film. There’s so many great characters and so many story arcs.” The story discusses news on the movie, based on the Warcraft PC games, from the BlizzCon convention in Anaheim today.

I wonder if this brings in mainstream viewers when it debuts in March 2016?

They'd better hope it does. There's only around 7 million WoW subscribers, and 7 million tickets sold isn't exactly box office gold.

No, but that would be a damn good start, considering many other movies don't start off anything close to that.

It's not that relevant . There arent even currently 7 millions people following monthly books releases of Batman and Avengers books , and yet look at the box office result .

The brand still had tons of mainstream recognition , the rest will be marketing and the quality of the movie itself and/or its appeal

It's probably just going to clump a load of the stories together and have really cool references shoved in it here and there.

I've never played W.O.W, but I'd watch this in a heartbeat. A buddy of mine that played a lot also read the books as well, and turned me onto them. Incredible fantasy books. Especially the story of Arthus.
