New Warcraft Prop Auction Lets You Take Home Iconic Pieces From The Film
Back in 2016, World of Warcraft fans were given their first true to form big budgeted movie adaptation with Warcraft, directed by Duncan Jones. While the film received mixed reviews in the West, it did exceedingly well for itself overseas, enough so that a potential sequel may be in the cards at some point in the future. In the meantime, though, in order to soothe those aching hearts longing for a sequel that may never come, a new Warcraft film auction has been announced that will let fans take home props from the set.
The folks over at Props Store are hosting an auction that is set to take place at the beginning of July, featuring numerous props that were shown and utilized during filming. These props include full costumes, banners, weapons, a full colored map of Azeroth, and even a ‘Green Skin Orc Bust’ because why not? While the prospect of a film auction is exciting enough, the fate of a potential movie sequel is very much in the air according to Duncan Jones. He spoke with Joblo last year and said that while it can still go in either direction, within the industry it is much easier to say no than it is to say yes. He would certainly love the opportunity, though. “I would love to and it’s such a weird one,” Jones began. “WARCRAFT. I mean, I think it has the highest divergency between fan ratings and critical ratings of any movie. But it really did. It has this really weird split, and then obviously, the financial side in the US was not what it needed to be, but it did do great internationally. So it’s such a unique case. It’s a truly unique case.”
No one really knows why or if a sequel will get made at this point. And I think no one is kind of ready to pull the trigger one way or the other. One of the things you’ll probably notice or be aware of with the studios is, it’s very easy to say no to things. It’s very hard to say yes because that’s when you get fired. You don’t get fired for saying no. You get fired to saying yes. And with a WARCRAFT sequel, no one wants to pull the trigger.”
Jones ended things on a more positive note, saying that “we’ll see what happens,” and that “Maybe at some point, someone will say, “You know what? It made so much money in China. Let’s just make it.” And assume that the international is what’s gonna make it successful, but I’m still waiting. I’m hoping they do it.”
