Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code, Warcraft) returns to sci-fi with Mute – the story of a mute bartender named Leo, whose girlfriend goes missing in a Berlin that exists on ‘a world of strange currencies in which echoes of love and humanity are still worth listening to.’
Warcraft has fans either drooling with enthusiasm, or weeping at how it looks so wrong. As someone who has never played the game, I find my curiosity piqued.
Humans and orcs – hated enemies for centuries – having to join forces to face a bigger threat? Neither side willing to completely trust the other? C’mon, that’s practically Shakespearean! And its directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code)!
Check out the new TV spot after the jump. It looks pretty darned cool! Warcraft opens on June 10th.
Following an impressive and intriguing first trailer, Warcraft now has its first TV spot and it’s also impressive.
Directed by Duncan Jones – who has made movies with low and medium budgets (Moon, Source Code) – Warcraft has the feel of being faithful to its source material with enemies joining forces against a mutual foe.
Warcraft will premiere on June 10th. Check out the new TV spot following the jump.
Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) has a feel for genre so I’m hoping that Warcraft (based on a video game I’ve never played) is a great movie. I love the idea of humans and orcs banding together to face a greater foe – it reminds me of a Bill Murray bit about the end times. Sue me.
Anyroad, the first trailer for Warcraft is here and it actually looks like it could be fun. Check it out after the jump. Warcraft will be in theaters on June 10th.
Suppose you could stop a nuclear attack on a major American city – but only by reliving the last eight minutes of someone else’s life and with no idea of where you were when you were not in that other, soon-to-end life. That’s the situation in which Jake Gyllenhaal’s Captain Colter Stevens finds himself in, in Duncan Jones’ Source Code.
It is the near future. Astronaut Sam Bell is living on the far side of the moon, completing a three-year contract with Lunar Industries to mine Earth’s primary source of energy, Helium-3. It is a lonely job, made harder by a broken satellite that allows no live communications home. Thankfully, his time on the moon is nearly over, and Sam will be reunited with his wife and their three-year-old daughter in only a few short weeks.
Duncan Jones makes his feature film debut as director in the new Sony Pictures Classic MOON, which opens in limited release on June 12th. MOON is a science fiction adventure with a human interest element that moviegoers will enjoy. I had the pleasure of chatting with Duncan to discuss his newfound journey.
Eclipse Magazine: Duncan, how did you get involved with the film?
DUNCAN JONES: Well, I wrote the original story because I had a meeting with Sam Rockwell. I wanted to work with him on my first feature film because I done commercials for a few years. I had the opportunity to meet with him. I fed him the script and he really liked it. It was for different project. He actually wanted to play a different role than the one I wanted him to do. So we met up in New York so we can run into each other, that didn’t work out but we got on really well. We started talking about bring some films we both love and the kind of roles as an actor that he was interested in playing. That gave me the genesis and the material to come up with something for him. So, I wrote MOON for Sam Rockwell.
