Duncan Jones just caused mild palpitations (to say the least) in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con 2013 during the Legendary presentation by appearing on stage along with a specially filmed teaser to set the tone for what has just been confirmed as the WARCRAFT feature film to begin shooting in early 2014.
Following along online via Twitter and live blogs earlier, Duncan took the room by surprise with his appearance at the annual convention for all things comic, game, film & TV causing comments such as this from Empire Magazine:
“They just showed a teaser for World Of Warcraft! People are losing their freakin’ minds!”
“That sound you heard was 6,000 nerds orgasming at Legendary’s Hall H announcement of a WARCRAFT movie.”
On stage with @nerdist Chris Hardwick Duncan was just as enthusiastic as everyone else:
“The opportunity to do something like ‘Warcraft’ is a once-in-a-lifetime thing. You hope that when you get the chance to make films, you really get the chance to create fantasy, and in ‘WARCRAFT, I actually get to create a world.”
What those people in Hall H saw this morning stays in their heads for the moment until an official release, or it somehow *coughs* finds it’s way out (please make it find it’s way out…NOW!)
For now though you can head over to Ain’t It Cool for a full run down from Eric Vespe.
This may not be the end of news from Duncan this weekend though. As you may know if you follow Duncan on Twitter, he has been teasing a treat for all as soon as he cracked 150,000 followers on the social network. It may have been assumed that the WARCRAFT tease was that treat, until Duncan just tweeted:
150,000 tweeters gift coming soon… It’s not what you think… 😉
