Legendary Release New WARCRAFT TV Spot

WARCRAFT POSTER November 2015

Legendary just released their first TV spot for Duncan Jones’ WARCRAFT. As it’s titled (TV Spot 1) we can safely assume this is the first of many as we build towards the June 10th 2016 release date.

As well as this, Duncan also shared some new pics of the impressive set for Stormwind City yesterday. June can’t come soon enough as far as I’m concerned… FOR THE ALLIANCE! (ducks).

Duncan Jones Returns To Twitter Sharing New WARCRAFT Photos

Duncan Jones returned to Twitter earlier today and thanked everyone for the many messages he has received over the last 13 days since the passing of his father. Duncan chose an image by one his favourite British artists David Shrigley to say “Everything is good”.


Duncan eased himself back into the social stream by sharing a couple of new images from his upcoming film WARCRAFT showing details of the Alliance city of Stormwind featuring the Hero’s Call Board which players of World of Warcraft will be very familiar with as a point of call when visiting Stormwind to obtain quests.

As you can see there’s some beautifully detailed work in these sets that have obviously had a lot of hard work, care and attention to detail put into them. After all that hard work, where better to relax then that the Woadside Inn, a place that has a very significant meaning to some. Those who know, will know :)

Goodbye Spaceboy

If it wasn’t for the great man existing in the first place, I wouldn’t be sat here typing this now. I really don’t want to be sitting here typing this now because the very act of doing it makes it more real. The saddest of sad days.

David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer. While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.

And finally, from Duncan.


Paul Rudd & Alexander Skarsgard To Star In Duncan Jones’ Sci-Fi Thriller “MUTE”

MUTE Script Pic Tweeted By Duncan Jones

Duncan teased news on MUTE yesterday and now we have the official announcement of not only confirmation that MUTE is happening, but amazing casting too! Scan to the bottom of the release and you’ll notice it also confirms Duncan will be working again with Clint Mansell and Sam Rockwell who may reprise his role as Sam Bell from MOON, hurrah!

LOS ANGELES (November 3, 2015) – Paul Rudd (ANT-MAN) will be joined by Alexander Skarsgard (TARZAN,TRUE BLOOD) in the title role, for the sci-fi thriller MUTE, which will be directed by BAFTA-winning director Duncan Jones (WARCRAFT, SOURCE CODE, MOON).

MUTE is based on a script by Jones and Mike Johnson and will be produced by Stuart Fenegan under Jones’ and Fenegan’s Liberty Films banner. Lotus Entertainment has come on board to handle international sales starting at the upcoming AFM. CAA who arranged for the financing is handling the domestic sale. Production is scheduled to start in March 2016. Lotus’ Bill Johnson, Jim Seibel, and Ara Keshishian will serve as executive producers.

Berlin. Forty years from today. A roiling city of immigrants, where East crashes against West in a science-fiction Casablanca. Leo Beiler (Skarsgard), a mute bartender has one reason and one reason only for living here, and she’s disappeared. But when Leo’s search takes him deeper into the city’s underbelly, an odd pair of American surgeons (led by Rudd) seem to be the only recurring clue, and Leo can’t tell if they can help, or who he should fear most.

Director Duncan Jones said: “I’ve been working towards making MUTE for 12 years now. I cannot tell you how thrilled I am that we’re finally going to shoot this utterly unique film. The fact that I get to make it with Alexander Skarsgard and Paul Rudd makes it all the more exciting! MUTE is a film that will last. It is unlike any other science fiction being made today.”

Lotus Entertainment’s Jim Seibel said: “We’re very excited to work with Duncan and Stuart. They are an immensely talented team that will surely deliver an exciting and cinematic film. Director Duncan Jones is a true visionary filmmaker and the real deal. It’s his caliber of talent that makes storytelling both visually exciting and captivating.”

Producer Stuart Fenegan said: “Bill, Jim and Ara share the same passion I do for building another vision of the future with Duncan. I look forward to going on this journey with them, and also reuniting with Sam Rockwell and composer Clint Mansell… can’t do sci-fi without Sam and Clint!”
