SDCC '13: GODZILLA And WORLD OF WARCRAFT Footage Description From Legendary Panel

Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have taken over Hall H, and as well as action-packed footage from Godzilla (in which the titular monster battles another unidentified giant creature), they've also shown a mood piece for Duncan Jones' big screen adaptation of World of Warcraft. Check it out!

Hall H at this year's San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be right now! Following the reveal of brand new footage from Godzilla was a mood piece (similar to the one shown last year for that movie) for Duncan Jones' World of Warcraft adaptation. He came out on stage to surprise those lucky enough to be in attendance and confirmed that production will begin early next year. Check out the descriptions below and be sure to sound off with your thoughts on all of this in the usual place!

Footage started in a desert environment. Slow build, seeing the desolation. The only hint of a sci-fi element is a green light in a circling cloud mass. We see a rugged man standing alone, takes a last drink of water, then pulls a big blade from his back. He's dressed almost like Mad Max except for the sword, which has a dragon's head overlapping the blade and the handle. He looks around and sees a long dead soldier, just bones in armor. The man sees something, approaches and pulls a shield with a lions head on it from the dusty earth, hefts its weight and then slams his sword into it, like he's ringing a bell. Something approaches, the camera pulls back and we're over the green shoulder of an Orc. In one take we see the orc in silhouette from the back and when we get to his right side a giant hammer raises into view and we get a gunslinger shot of the hammer kind of framing the rugged dude with the sword in the distance. They charge each other, the man raising his sword, the Orc raising his hammer. The Orc brings it down first and we get a POV shot of the Orc jumping up and bring the hammer down right on us.


Like Cloverfield on steroids. First half shows intimate moments, lots of action, emotion of people running through a world. Then it starts on an action scene of another 4-legged giant monster terrorizing a city. All of a sudden you see Godzilla walking in. A helicopter gets swatted and blows up half of an airport, all of a sudden the foot of Godzilla sets down. And all of a sudden there's a big roar. Final shot is a big, huge Godzilla standing up above the other monster, dwarfing it and the roar. Sounds perfect. Chills.

They just showed a Warcraft movie teaser. Footage of a human picking up a shield in a desolate world with green skies. Finally you hear an Orc, who comes in with his armor and hammer, and runs out and jumps for a PVP fight.

SOURCE: First Showing

The WB and Legendary logos in Black and white. Soldiers running through the streets. A flooded city. Cranston takes off a radiation suit. Olsen crying. Paratroopers leaping out of a plane. Missles being loaded. A massive kaiju beast that ISN'T Godzilla! It looks like a massively scaled insect with long spider legs. It's attacking a dock. Soldiers are fighting it. But a massive scaled foot comes down. It's Gozilla! He's HUGE. He makes the other creature look tiny and moves to attack it! We don't see his face yet, but it looks like the classic Godzilla! The footage cuts away to a "2014" logo. As far as the other creature, think a combination of the Cloverfield monster and a bug from Starship Troopers

A strange, alien desert with a growing green sky. A storm is coming in. A knight is standing there. He draws his sword.. There's a discarded suit of armor. He takes the shield from a skeleton. It's World of Warcraft! He's gearing up. Creatures are coming over the hills. We follow a camera on an Orc as it moves to take, moving faster and faster. Just as the Orc's blade comes down, it cuts to the logo!

I hope David Jones' Warcraft is as psychedelic as his Dad's music!!! (DavidBowie)

The monster is reported to look very similar to Kumonga.

Would be cool if it is.
Nick56 - 7/20/2013, 11:53 AM
another monster? I was hoping this would be more military vs godzilla and not godzilla saves the planet

Nick56 - 7/20/2013, 11:56 AM

Godzilla might be awesome.
But am I the only one who thinks WoW the movie is a bad idea? As talented as Duncan Jones has shown himself to be, this just seems like a bad idea. I guess I'll reserve judgement until I see some footage for myself...
ATrueHero1987 - 7/20/2013, 12:03 PM
I'm so pumped for the 2014 movies!
LordoftheThrones26 - 7/20/2013, 12:05 PM
Have David Bowie do the soundtrack for Warcraft!
Nick56 - 7/20/2013, 12:05 PM
@Gnyah123 I guess I just assumed it was, based on all the military based set-pics and reports. As long as they keep it so godzilla is still a major threat as well than Im fine with more monster(s)
AlexDeLarge87 - 7/20/2013, 12:05 PM
Sounds [frick]ing awesome!
LordoftheThrones26 - 7/20/2013, 12:10 PM
Godzilla vs. Kamacuras, Anguirus and Kumonga!
GeekyCheekyChic - 7/20/2013, 12:10 PM
Godzilla vs anything other than the military and in good.
Nubase - 7/20/2013, 12:15 PM
WB have got some huge movies coming...Godzilla, world of witchcraft and soon to be annouced superman/batman
Crescendo - 7/20/2013, 12:25 PM

CaptainAmerica31 - 7/20/2013, 1:07 PM

beane2099 - 7/20/2013, 1:12 PM
The trailer is hitched to my truck. Why do you all want to see it. And I hope it doesn't leak. I need that trailer to last, dammit!
ThatOneDude - 7/20/2013, 1:20 PM
Godzilla is my most aniticipated film of 2014!!

Reading the description alone gave me chills.
MisterNiceGuy - 7/20/2013, 1:33 PM
Forgot about the wow movie. Who is producing and directing it now?
Seejay - 7/20/2013, 1:47 PM

Godzilla - cool.

But is it really a "World of Warcraft" movie? And not a "Warcraft" movie?

Imho they should start from the beginning, perhaps not Warcraft 1 (Orcs and Humans) but certainly Warcraft 2. It had a very cool story.
marvel72 - 7/20/2013, 1:48 PM
both sound blinding.
Seejay - 7/20/2013, 1:50 PM

Btw. Starcraft 2 dreamhack final soon.
BlackIceJoe - 7/20/2013, 3:33 PM
I can't wait to see Godzilla. Pacific Rim put me in a mood to see big old beasts destroying things. So seeing Godzilla on screen is going to be great.

As for Warcraft why is it called World of Warcraft? When it should just be called Warcraft. I have never been a fan of WOW. But I have enjoyed what WB did with The Lord of The Rings. So I believe this should be good too.
HULK2099 - 7/20/2013, 3:52 PM
Bring us King Ghidora!!!
TheGambitFreak - 7/20/2013, 4:05 PM
NO! No King Ghidora for a long, long time, he's arguably Godzilla's arch nemesis. Too early, let him get his ground first.

Footage sounds terrific. People better upload their illegal cellphone video.... lol.

As far as WoW goes. Who gives a shit?

SugarYumYum - 7/20/2013, 5:53 PM
Boo, I wanna see it not read it.

*reads anyway*

... it all sounds so freakin sweet.
thewolfx - 7/20/2013, 9:26 PM
They basically said Godzilla would [frick]in own cloverfield :)
