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.

WARCRAFT And Duncan Jones Return To Comic-Con

Following last years surprise appearance at San Diego Comic-Con, Duncan Jones is set to return to the event with WARCRAFT this coming Saturday 26th where those lucky enough to be attending will get the chance to meet Duncan at a signing event as detailed by Legendary on their Twitter account:-

As anticipation builds towards the release of WARCRAFT in March 2016, this event could prove quite popular, so best get in quick as advised again by Legendary:-

No word yet on what costume Duncan will be wearing to sneak in with, last year it was as a Mexican Luchador.

Duncan Jones Sneaks Into SDCC2013 As A Luchador

There’s also no word on whether we may see anything from WARCRAFT itself. We’ve still not seen the teaser / mood piece that was shown at SDCC2013 so maybe (hopefully) there are more surprises to come…

PS – Yes, we’ve all been rather worried about the fact that the new photo of Duncan shows he has rather unfortunately got something stuck in his eye. Screenwriter Gary Whitta organising a collection if you’d like to help.

Want a MUTE Print Signed by Duncan Jones?

Duncan Jones served a double whammy after sneaking into San Diego Comic-Con last month dressed as a luchador. Presenting not only a surprise teaser for his next film WARCRAFT, but also announcing a graphic novel of the long anticipated MUTE in collaboration with award winning British comic artist Glenn Fabry and Dark Horse Comics.

Those attending SDCC were not only present to hear the news, but were also able to pick up a print of two pages from MUTE at a signing session with Duncan. We all gazed on enviously, I pleaded with Duncan to slip a few down his kecks (trousers for you lot not from around these parts) and…he bloody well did!

I’d be happy to hoard them away, but Duncan has gone and squiggled all over them, so I’m going to give some to…maybe YOU!
