MUTE News This Week? “ZOLTAR HAS SPOKEN”

While we await the big news on WARCRAFT from BlizzCon 2015 this coming Saturday (trailer maybe? Huh? Maybe?) We may also soon be getting news on another Duncan Jones project, MUTE.

There are a few clues, Duncan’s response to a question on that very subject this afternoon from @HazelMaysDays

MUTE: Duncan Jones’ Own Don Quixote May Get Made BEFORE Warcraft Release!

Dark Horse Presents Duncan Jones & Glenn Fabry - MUTE SDCC2013

Aah MUTE, a dark Sci-Fi film Duncan Jones has been trying to get made since 2009. A love letter to Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner, a film set in the same cinematic universe as Duncan’s highly acclaimed debut feature MOON. A film fans of Duncan’s work have been yearning for since hearing about it back in 2009. A film that may now get made BEFORE WARCRAFT is released on June 10th 2016.

Speaking exclusively to Empire last night at the opening preview evening of SDCC15 where WARCRAFT is taking centre stage, Duncan said the words we’ve been wanting to hear for a very long time:-

“Dark Horse and Glenn Fabry and myself have been working on the graphic novel for MUTE for years now – literally years – and there’s a very good chance, if I can squeeze it in in these 11 months, that you’ll see the film before you see the graphic novel.”

“It’s 11 months to sneak in my little indie sci-fi before Warcraft comes out, I got Moon done in 11 months.”

That MUTE graphical novel first announced in 2013 is in progress and as ever will be “ready when it’s ready”, when the legendary Glenn Fabry has finished the artwork.

Duncan has often compared the attempts to get MUTE made to those made by one of his cinematic heroes Terry Gilliam with his version of Don Quixote, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. Well it looks like Gilliam will finally be getting his film made. Maybe, if we’re very lucky, Duncan will finally get to make MUTE. Cross ALL the thingies!

Use Google Chrome to view this video for the full 360° experience.

Outside of SDCC and BlizzCon, no one has seen any footage from WARCRAFT since shooting began back in January 2014. There’s been much speculation that Duncan Jones and the gang will be screening a trailer, or at least a teaser, on Saturday during the Legendary Warcraft panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2015, but nothing definite. “What trailer?” has been Duncan’s response to anyone who asks. So, it came as a great surprise on Wednesday evenings SDCC15 preview evening when Legendary revealed a Virtual Reality app that enables viewers to take to the skys of Azeroth flying over Stormwind on the back of a Gryphon.

SDCC15 Legendary VRCreated by ILM, the Legendary VR app for iOS and Android devices gives viewers the chance to immerse themselves in three Legendary films when used in conjuction with Google Cardboard (which some wag called Shaun Hildner over on Twitter called Oculus Thrift).  Cool, huh?

WARCRAFT: THE SKIES OF AZEROTH

SOAR THROUGH THE EPIC WORLD OF THE WARCRAFT MOVIE

Prepare yourself for a spectacular first look at the cinematic envisioning of Warcraft. Climb aboard the back of the mythic Gryphon and ride the skies over Azeroth*: a fantasy realm as dangerous as it is beautiful.

“But I’ve not got Oculus Thrift” you say, no problem. You can run the app and view footage from WARCRAFT, Crimson Peak and Pacific Rim without. Fire up the app, launch your choice of film and move your device around 360 degrees to view all around.

There are currently 2 competitions to WIN Legendary branded Google Cardboard on Twitter and Facebook, or you can pick up Google Cardboard yourself and take your Gryphon for a spin.

Legendary VR is rolling out Worldwide on iOS and Android so keep checking if it’s not hit your region just yet.
