For The Horde!

Coming out of Comic-Con this weekend is news that Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. gave nerds a first look at a live-action World of Warcraft adaptation titled simply Warcraft.

A mix of live action and CG and set in a field near Hellfire, the teaser featured a human warrior drawing down on a hammer-wielding orc.

Director Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) was in attendance and after screaming “I know how lucky I am and I’m so, so excited to do it” like a school girl told the crowd the footage shown was a “mood piece” and that official shooting will start in 2014.

After numerous attempts to adapt World of Warcraft for the big screen since 2006, including the rumored involvement of Steven Spielberg and Sam Raimi, who dropped out in 2012 to film Oz: The Great and Powerful, it seems as if nerds can finally rejoice.

The Cli3nt

   I am 43-years-old, a hemophiliac, the co-founder of GamersRevenge.com, a blogger at TheCli3nt.com, part-time YouTuber (Geek Out! videocast) and Twitch streamer.
   I'm an old-school gamer, having started playing video games back in 1977 on the Atari 2600 (even managed to place 6th in Jafco's Atari Pac-Man tournament in 1982). I first began abusing games shortly after my best friend introduced me to Quake. By the time Quake II was released, I was addicted.
   After being found, in May 2008, passed out in front of my computer with a mouse cord wrapped around my arm and over 100 flash drives scattered around my body, I sobered up. To help maintain my sobriety, I switched to single player console gaming.
   In my life outside of the Wasteland, yes, I do have one --- wait, that's a lie. I have my Xbox One, Plex media server, high-speed internet, and Dax the Magnificent (my furry four-legged child).
