Adapted from Blizzard Entertainment’s massively popular Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game “Warcraft”, the eponymous movie is set to hit the theaters on June 10th. The highly anticipated movie (especially for gamers) is the result of a visionary deal that Universal forged with the software giant more than a decade ago! Sam Raimi (of the ‘Evil Dead’ fame) was initially approached to direct the movie but was eventually replaced by Duncan Jones (remember the awesome movie Moon?) in January 2013.
The movie revolves around the lead protagonist for The Alliance, Sir Anduin Lothar (portrayed by Travis Fimmel) and the Orc chieftain Durotan (Toby Kebbell), as they stand on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders. This movie captures some of the most beautiful gaming cinematography by Simon Duggan (The Great Gatsby, Live Free or Die Hard, 300: Rise of an Empire) and music by Ramin Djawadi, who is known for the scoring Game of Thrones and Iron Man.
Warcraft is known to be those nostalgic 90’s games along with Half-Life, Princess Zelda and has its own episode on South Park. (S10E08 – Make Love, Not Warcraft)
As a part of the online video marketing efforts for the movie, Legendary pictures invited 32 YouTube creators to play an epic game of Capture the Flag. The creators were split into two teams with Markiplier and iHasCupquake as the designated captains of the Alliance and the Horde factions respectively. The two teams then indulge in a classic game of capture the flag, throwing colored paint bombs at each other. Here are the two teams:
