WARCRAFT, The Movie: When Will It Hit TV/HBO?

Travis Fimmel and Toby Kebbell in Warcraft, the movie

SO it just hit me, what the heck ever happened with the Warcraft movie and why hasn't it shown up on my TV set yet?

When I was thinking of seeing it in the movie theaters, I let critics scare me off and the timing sucked for me personally, so I didn't try to go see it. But nearly 200k IMDb users gave it a 6.9/10 rating. Wow! Once again, another clash or disconnect between critics and fans. Sigh. Rotten Tomatoes critics gave it a score of 28%.

But it brought in over $400M worldwide, having me wondering when or if there will be a sequel. (It's production budget was $160M.)


Warcraft was directed by Duncan Jones (Source Code, Moon), and stars Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Clancy Brown, Daniel Wu, Ryan Robbins and a slew of others in this film based around the video game.


As an Orc horde invades the planet Azeroth using a magic portal, a few human heroes and dissenting Orcs must attempt to stop the true evil behind this war.

I just happened across the trailer for the film because it popped up as a recommended link while I was watching the Pacific Rim Uprising video. Normally, I don't follow suggested links. This might have been my third or fourth time ever.


Then after catching the trailer, I decided to Google it to see what's up, and guess what? Warcraft will be airing on HBO at the following dates/times:

Sun, 11/26, 9 PM    HBO (East)
Mon, 11/27, 12 AM   HBO (West)
Tue, 11/28, 1:55 PM HBO2 (East)
Tue, 11/28, 4:55 PM HBO2 (West)
Thu, 11/30, 12 PM   HBO Zone (East)

So now, I just have to remember to go set up my DVR to record it.
