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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Indie Jones…

Duncan JonesLooks like we may have more than WARCRAFT to look forward to from Duncan Jones after he announced via his Twitter account that he is working on something that may shoot before the highly anticipated big screen adaptation of Blizzard Entertainment‘s MMORPG game is released in June next year.

Great news for fans of Jones’ work who have waited since 2011’s release of hisย 2nd feature Source Code for more from the BAFTA award winning director.

As to what this “little indie” may be, Jones is remaining tight lipped on further details at the moment. Keep an eye on Duncan’s Twitter account over the next few months for more details on new projects and the build up to the June 11th release of WARCRAFT.

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.

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.

Win A Poster Signed By Duncan Jones To Celebrate MOON’s 5th Birthday

Today we are celebrating the 5th Birthday of Duncan Jones’ MOON.

Duncan Jones' MOON - Poster from Dark Horse

Released in the UK on Friday 17th July 2009 MOON has gone on to become a huge critical success both here in the UK and abroad winning many awards beginning with the Michael Powell Award for Best New British Feature Film at the 63rd Edinburgh International Film Festival where it also received it’s UK premiere on the 28th June 2009. Among the many awards there was also of course Duncan’s BAFTA Award for Outstanding Debut by a British Director which led to this rather emotional acceptance speech.

Among sci-fi fans MOON has also gone on to become something of a cult classic joining the ranks of those that inspired it in the first place. Films such as Silent Running, Outland, Alien and 2001: A Space Odyssey. MOON was even compared to 2001 by some bloke called Terry Gilliam in Little White Lies (issue 34, p40-41)

“I think MOON is a really brilliant example of contemporary sci-fi because it has a message; it has strong visuals but it also has a proper science fiction core. It’s the closest thing to a modern-day 2001 I have seen”

We know you all love MOON too, that’s one of the reasons why we are here writing this now. The support for MOON since release from you lot has been one of the biggest reasons for it’s continued success on DVD / Blu-Ray and cinema screenings that have continued since release. To celebrate MOON’s 5th Birthday Duncan Jones has sent us some rather lovely signed MOON posters to give away to a few lucky fans. You may recall these became available back in November 2012 when the limited signed run sold out very quickly. Well, we have three to give away, and three different ways to win one

Plymouth Uni Student Sam Rowe Creates MOON Poster For Degree Show

All the very best to Sam Rowe at his Plymouth University review show today as he puts his MOON print on show ๐Ÿ™‚

MOON Poster by Sam RoweSam tweeted his print to MOON Director Duncan Jones earlier today and kindly dropped us a line to tell us a bit about it…

“I made the poster for my degree show (which is actually today, Friday 13th, eek) and itโ€™s a two colour, hand pulled silk screen print which is roughly A2. And I kinda made it for two reasons; firstly there was a screening of Moon at my university cinema (Plymouth Uni) and they asked students to design their own posters to promote them. I picked Moon but sadly didnโ€™t get to do it in the end. So now that the degree show is here I thought Iโ€™d finally do it.

The reason I picked Moon is because I think itโ€™s just a brilliant film. I think itโ€™s a blazing beacon of success in low-budgetness, acting, story telling, set design – all that stuff. Also my nameโ€™s Sam so whoโ€™s to say Gerty wasnโ€™t actually talking to me?”

More of Sam’s work over on his online portfolio. Thanks, Sam ๐Ÿ™‚

Duncan Jones - WARCRAFT Quest Master

Clancy Brown and Daniel Wu Cast in WARCRAFT – Inspires New Song

Confirmation came of new cast members of Duncan Jones’ WARCRAFT last night from Legendary Pictures in the shape of Clancy Brown and Daniel Wu. No details as to which roles they have been cast in at the moment (as is the case with the previous casting news) but Brown’s casting in particular has excited Jones and inspired a new song for Chesney Hawkes and Nik Kershaw to get to work on.

Greeting the world from his Twitter account earlier Jones said:

Duncan Jones Has The Horn 19 Dec 2013
Duncan Jones Has The Horn
ManMadeMoon
Gooood morning all! I’ve got CLANCY FRIGGIN BROWN in Warcraft! I have to say it…. “There can be only one!”
19/12/2013 15:17

We’ve all been trying to figure out how Chesney Hawkes’ hit ‘The One and Only’ would be worked into WARCRAFT after being featured in both of Jones’ previous features (MOON & Source Code) and it seems after a wee think, Duncan has had a blinding flash of inspiration combining the song with a phrase from one of Clancy Brown’s most famous films ‘Highlander‘:

ManMadeMoon
Hmmm…. Hmmm…. Hmmmmmm…… “There can be one and only!”
19/12/2013 15:20

Looking forward to hearing this ๐Ÿ™‚
