So, they're discussing the ******** movie, once again. Who knows if this will ever actually happen, but G4TV interviewed some of the folks at Blizzard about their expectations for the movie.

What are they looking for? "Just a good movie"

While I hope this doesn't crush the directors monstrous ego (I like Sam Raimy, but most directors have monstrous egos), I feel that this is a smart move on their part. Video game movies are, by and large, atrocities in the face of humanity. Blizzard, hoping for their movie to be "watchable" is a reasonable expectation and, like the article says, demonstrates the fact that they can be reasonably well-grounded at times about things.

The flip side of this, and how I'm justifying posting it on the STO forums, is how opposite WoW is when compared to Star Trek. When you think of MMOs, you think of WoW. When you think of SCI-Fi TV (and to a certain extent movies) you think of Star Trek.

I'm personally hoping that a ******** movie makes as big of an impact on the VG movie market as I hope STO will make on the MMO market.

Here's the article.

One thing everyone seems to disregard when talking about "what's the movie going to be about": Never once has blizzard called it a "world of ********" movie, it's always been "the ******** movie." There's games (and at least 2 expansions) worth of material that happened before WoW.

Taking it back and showing Medihv open the Dark Portal and welcome the Horde to Azeroth would be an awesome story, IMHO.

If your parallel bares out Webstravaganza, I hope the movie make a hundred billion trillion gazillion fafillio dollars. Cause if all the Star Trek shows and movies are good, and all the ******** games are good, and the ******** movie explodes, we can only hope STO will follow suit, for the sake of symmetry.

I'd like to see the first invasion of the Legion which was 10,000 years before the first game.

Any guesses on what they would make a WoW movie about?

Watch as three brave companions try to pick up two more members for their team...
Be Amazed as a raid falls apart after four hours of spamming the same buttons over and over because a pink haired gnome went AFK...
You will be drawn into one cliche after another...
And featuring the same Jamaican guy as every troll.

See World of ********: l4t this summer!
