Traditionally, video game movies are not good. History tells us they simply do not work. It’s kind of impressive, actually, how every single adaptation has failed to turn out a genuinely good movie. The closest we’ve come is Edge of Tomorrow, which feels like a video game adaptation but isn’t one. However, we just might be on the cusp of seeing the curse broken once and for all, and Universal Pictures, co-writer/director Duncan Jones, and producers Charles Roven, Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni, Alex Gartner and Stuart Fennegan are trying their darndest with Warcraft, a film that I was lucky enough to see being made in Vancouver last spring during a fascinating (and somewhat overwhelming) set visit.
