‘Warcraft’ Movie Improved With Gaming Sound Effects, Director Duncan Jones Already Planning Sequels? [New Trailer]

While the first full trailer for Warcraft was released to a wider audience during Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the trailer has already seen its first remake and not in a way many people would have expected. In an attempt to improve on the initial trailer, one fan re-dubbed the video with the game’s original sound effects, resulting in a hilarious version of the original trailer.
The trailer, which can be viewed on Game Sided, includes both music and sounds from the game. This includes generic bird songs, sound effects, and character comments like “zug-zugs,” which contrast hilariously with the movie’s serious tone. Although it might not be an improvement, the trailer is sure to bring plenty of laughs and nostalgia to fans of the original game.
The movie is based on the hit video game that was originally released over 20 years ago. The plot centers on the Frostwolf orcs, who are forced to run from the evil Shadow Council. While the main storyline might not match up perfectly with the game, the film is set to include a number of different characters from the game, including Khadgar, Anduin, Durotan, and Garona.

Meanwhile, Forbes is reporting that Warcraft may very well become the surprise movie of the new year. While 2016 is set to include a number of blockbusters, including Captain America: Civil War, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Independence Day: Resurgence, and Star Trek Beyond, Warcraft sets itself apart due to its originality.
In fact, Warcraft marks the first time the fantasy world will be brought to the big screens. With a big budget to back it up, the film has a great shot at making a big splash this summer. Whether or not this means that fans will show up in mass to support the new movie is yet to be seen. However, it should have a decent showing, especially considering the game’s loyal fan base.
Meanwhile, with the new trailer now out for all the world to see, director Duncan Jones has high hopes for Warcraft. According to Design & Trend, Duncan recently talked about some of the expectations that are inherent in a franchise like Warcraft and explained some of the difficulties in adapting the story.
“Peter Jackson did a magnificent job of setting the table for Tolkien’s universe with his first Lord of the Rings film. I know that my job in this first film is to establish certain characters, places and culture while telling a story that a broad audience can be excited by,” Duncan related.

At the same time, Duncan also expressed his own excitement about a possible sequel to Warcraft. In his mind, the only thing that would prevent another Warcraft film from being developed is if fans don’t show up big at the box office.
“Hopefully, if I have done my job right, people will want to know and see more!” he shared. “There is certainly plenty more to tell! I would love to be part of that process of expanding on the lore that makes up Warcraft, but it will all depend on what you, the audience, think of our first film.”
Duncan went on to describe his thought process behind the major plot line of the film. In particular, the director stated that it was important to include the first encounter between the Orcs and humans. Not only was this a great way to launch the story, but it also gave the director a chance to explain the world that many people are not likely familiar with.
Warcraft is scheduled to be released in theaters on June 10, 2016.
