8 New Character Posters for Duncan Jones’ WARCRAFT and More
I’m really excited about Warcraft, but I really haven’t been a big fan of the marketing behind the film. It’s like they don’t know how to sell this movie to audiences. Director Duncan Jones hasn’t been very happy with the marketing either. I’ve shared a few tweets with his thoughts at the end of the post.
Today we bring you eight character posters for the film showing off Blackhand the Destroyer, Lady Taria the Queen, Orgrim the Defiant, Llane the King, Gerona the Survivor, Lothar the Warrior, Durotan the Rebel, and Gul’dan the Invader.
So far there’s a lot of mixed reception from people. Some people think it looks awesome (like me), and a lot of people that I’ve talked to think it looks like crap. I honestly don’t get that. I’m hoping the film blows audiences away and puts an end to the video game movie curse.
I’ve also included some fan-made promos for you to check out that are much better than some of the stuff the studio has released.
Warcraft arrives in theaters on June 10th, 2016.
BLACKHAND - THE DESTROYER
Driven by cruel ambition and fueled by rage, Blackhand the Destroyer is war incarnate.
LADY TARIA - THE QUEEN
In an age of beasts and battlegrounds, Lady Taria’s grace and diplomacy provide a beacon of hope to the people.
ORGRIM - THE DEFIANT
Wielder of the mighty Doomhammer, Orgrim is fiercely loyal to his Chieftain Durotan.
LLANE – THE KING
Leading from the front-lines, the noble King Llane is a symbol of strength in a time of war.
GARONA – THE SURVIVOR
Garona is the unbroken survivor who will join Lothar and Durotan to save a world they can all call home.
LOTHAR - THE WARRIOR
Forged in the fire of battle, the brave knight Lothar has sacrificed everything to become defender of Azeroth.
DUROTAN – THE REBEL
Chieftain of the Frostwolf Clan, Durotan will do whatever it takes to find a home for his people.
GUL’DAN – THE INVADER
A tyrannical orc shaman wielding dark powers, Gul’dan sees all life as fuel for the Horde.
Here's the fan made stuff:
Now compare those to the official promo stuff that is being created for the film:
As you can see there's a big difference in quality. Here's what Jones had to say about the some of the marketing, which he obviously isn't too thrilled about:
