A deleted scene from Warcraft has been released online ahead of the film’s DVD and Blu-ray release.
The almost 90-second clip sees the orcs, including Toby Kebbell’s Durotan, discussing The Fel, the destructive form of magic carried by the malevolent orc sorcerer, Gul’dan. The scene may not be action-packed or highly kinetic, but it nevertheless helps set up the conflict that will arise between Durotan and Gul’dan. Depending on where the scene was interested, it may have been better to leave this one in.
Warcraft didn’t really nail it with the critics, as evidenced by the 28% score on Rotten Tomatoes, and the film’s domestic pull of just $US47.2 million wasn’t very impressive, but the film’s international meant the film wasn’t quite the flop many thought it to be. The film earned $US433.5 million worldwide, and a whopping $US220.8 million of that came from China alone. Eyes will now be on home entertainment sales.
There’s been no official word on a sequel as yet, although China will likely be a big target if one is greenlit.
In Australia Warcraft: The Beginning will hit DVD and Blu-ray on September 22. The U.S. will see a release on September 27. Scroll down to check out the list of special features.
