Warcraft – Official Trailer

Universal and Legendary released their official Warcraft trailer, and it’s a HUGE improvement over the teaser.  That’s the good news; the not-so-good news is that–at least in the trailer–the CGI is looking particularly gamey, as in video gamey.

That’s not to say that it looks bad, but the Orcs don’t look as realistic as Hulk from Avengers: Age Of Ultron, either (and I am aware that orcs aren’t real, but you know what I mean) and live comfortably in the uncanny valley.

What I am also not seeing is it being a huge hit, which I attribute to the timing of the release more than anything else (if this came on the heels of the Lord Of The Rings movies it might be a different story) though I am not sure that Legendary wanting a movie to be an event is the same as the movie actually being an event.

We’ll see.
