Everyone who had expected an entirely fictional story in the movie Warcraft, which is set in the same fantasy universe as the video games, will be surprised by Dominic Cooper. It's mainly a human story reflecting the dreadful conditions in our world. The well-known characters will be featured, yet there are going to be a lot of references towards reality.
In an Interview with CraveOnline
, Dominic Cooper stated that this concept is supposed to lead to success, as cinematizations of video games haven't been very popular lately. After all, movies are more appealing if you're able to relate to them. For everyone who hasn't heard it yet, the Warcraft movie is said to be released in 2016.
What do you think about the concept? Do you like these references, or would you prefer a different focus?
