The World of Warcraft movie is expected to begin filming early next year, and last we heard, it was rumored that Colin Farrell and Paul Patton could be starring in the movie. Well it turns out the rumor was half right as the cast (or at least part of it) for the movie has been revealed. This is according to Universal Pictures who confirmed that they have managed to close deals with Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, Rob Kazinsky, and Dominic Cooper. As it stands that leaves other actors, such as Colin Farrell, Paul Dano, Anton Yelchin, and Anson Mount, as rumored but not confirmed, but for now the abovementioned list are in.
For the most part these actors are famous in their own right, but they aren’t necessarily considered to be big names in the movie industry, as in they might not have the same amount of fame or recognition compared to mentioning a name such as George Clooney, or Brad Pitt, for example. This is admittedly is a good thing since big name actors usually have an image or style associated with them which could work against them when filming for a movie such as World of Warcraft, a franchise which has its own rich history and loyal following and where its characters have been years in development. The World of Warcraft movie is expected to be released on the 11th of March 2016. The movie has been delayed from its original release date of the 18th of December 2015 due to conflicts with the Star Wars: Episode VII movie. So are you happy with the cast list so far?
We have been hearing reports of how buggy EA’s Battlefield 4 is, to the extent where EA’s VP actually admitted it himself while vowing to ensure that future EA games will be thoroughly tested to ensure the best experience possible. Well the good news is that EA appears to be taking these bugs pretty seriously as they have released a statement to the folks at Kotaku, claiming that future Battlefield 4 DLCs will not be released until they have sorted out the issues that they are having with the game first.
However in the meantime, EA will be releasing the Battlefield 4 China Rising expansion pack as they had already promised gamers a release date, and also because the expansion was already in the final stages of development, which didn’t make much sense to hold it back any longer than necessary. According to EA’s statement, “We’re not moving onto future projects or expansions until we sort out all the issues with Battlefield 4. We know many of our players are frustrated, and we feel your pain. We will not stop until this is right.” While this means that Battlefield 4 players might be stuck with the same content for a while, we suppose it’s better than having to play through new, but buggy, content, right?
