What If Neil Gaiman Adapted David Bowie Songs for an Animated Something?

First and foremost- YES, DUNCAN JONES, YES. This is one of the best ideas ever, and oddly enough one that >this< writer was literally talking about last night while explaining to their offspring about how David Bowie‘s rich discography would make the PERFECT prompt for shortform animation projects. Secondly,  here’s what we’re talking about- If @neilhimself […]

Duncan Jones Posts Update on his ‘Rogue Trooper’ Film

Filmmaker Duncan Jones is hard at work on his upcoming comic book film adaptation- 2000AD’s Rogue Trooper. We don’t know much about what Jones has in mind for his blue-skinned solider, but we do know he’s making progress on a script. Just today, the Moon, Mute, Warcraft director tweeted a bit of an update on how things are going: Slowly […]

Duncan Jones Asked Twitter About ‘Logans Run’ Remake, and We’re Here For it

We’ve been saying for YEARS that Logan’s Run would be the perfect 70’s science fiction property to get a remake. Obviously, other people thought the same thing–there was the 2012 attempt that was set to star Ryan Gosling and be directed by Nicolas Winding Refn but that didn’t work out. At one point Bryan Singer was working on one (thank […]

Duncan Jones Thinks Clancy Brown Should Be a Starship Captain

Twitter can sometimes be one of those magical social media things where you get to see folks interact [as real people] with each other- like today’s entry with filmmaker Duncan Jones saying he wants to see Clancy Brown as a starship Captain.  Honestly? We do not disagree! The interaction came about with an anecdotal response from Brown […]

Filmmaker Duncan Jones is branching out this year and moving into the realm of television to direct an adaptation of Tony Kent‘s first Killer Intent novel for the small screen. Jones has some pretty great titles under his belt — Moon celebrating its ninth anniversary this year, Warcraft still mocked but enjoyed — and of course his most recently announced title, Rogue […]

Duncan Jones Is Not Directing a DC Superhero Movie

Yesterday director Duncan Jones teased that he’s going to direct a comic book movie. That isn’t exactly a short list to go down, and people have been wondering if he’s about to jump into Marvel or DC — or if he’s going to take on a Vertigo property or some other comic book movie. There […]

Duncan Jones Teases Next Film – It’ll Be a Comic Book Movie!

While Duncan Jones‘s Warcraft gets a lot of undue hate, his other slate of work points to his prowess behind the lens and incredibly strong visual language. Just today on Twitter, the Brit teased his next film project, and apparently it’s going to be a funny-papers feature. A little nervous about this, but hell, nervous is where […]

Let’s Talk About ‘Mute’, Duncan Jones’s Netflix Sci-Fi Film

I finally got to sit down and finish watching Duncan Jones‘s Mute on Netflix, and am still struck by what a beautiful and sometimes horrifying film it was. That’s not to say it was bad; far from it, really. Since it was announced as a thing, I’ve been really looking forward to seeing what the Moon director had […]

Happy Birthday, David Bowie – We Miss You, Starman

David Bowie would have turned 71 today, had we not lost his force of space nature two years ago. He left us with an amazing collection of work; music, film, and his continuing legacy of being true to one’s self (whichever self that happened to be at the time). It’s also Elvis Presley‘s birthday — […]


Duncan Jones Defends Warcraft From Impolite Interviewer

While there are valid criticisms to be made of Warcraft as a film, and indeed, I’ve written about a few of them, there is a general decorum when bringing criticisms directly to filmmakers. Unfortunately for director Duncan Jones, he faced an interviewer seemingly unaware of how to tactfully phrase his concerns. As spotted by Indiewire, […]

Will The Rising China Box Office Make Warcraft A Hit?

When a big budget, Hollywood blockbuster opens with $24 million and negative critical reviews, it’s instantly called a flop. And if it has an opening weekend of $156 million and gets an 83% positive review from audiences, we call it a success…. So what if the same movie did both? The Legendary Pictures film Warcraft, […]

The Warcraft Movie From A Player’s Point Of View

A little over seven years ago, I got a stray email from someone I hadn’t talked to in five years. We had been friends since high school but drifted apart. In the short email she told me of a game she had recently gotten into, World of Warcraft, and that I should buy a copy […]


Warcraft – The Coolest Kids On The Block

Duncan Jones thinks there is an arms race in Hollywood for the best visual effects and right now he and the crew of Warcraft are the coolest kids on the block. It’s hard to say for story and acting from the trailers, but the visuals we’ve seen so far in the trailers and featurettes are […]


A Look Inside Warcraft – The Cast Talks About The Spectacle

I’ve been pretty upfront about my love of World of Warcraft. I’ve been playing for nine years now and I’m eagerly anticipating the next expansion. I already have my Demon Hunter’s name picked out. I have been a bit reserved about the upcoming Warcraft film though. Seldomly does a video game translate well into a […]
