Command and Conquer?! you got to be joking. Anyone serious about making a good film knows that content is king. You can have all the graphics, special effects, and good-looking actors money can buy, but if your story lacks substance, your movie is crapola. What's exciting about WoW as a film is it has so much lore backing it up. So many developed and interesting characters and races it'd be difficult to make a bad movie if you got Blizzard developers and artists in the mix. Story is what makes Blizzard games stand out from everything else. It's why Aion fails.. The games that would make good films are the ones with great stories: WoW, Starcraft, Halo, Bioshock, Mass Effect - These all would make great films... Command and Conquer, Aion, Doom, Dungeon Siege... eh.. not so much.

I'll be first in line for a WoW movie, but I agree that there are better choices.  Maybe a Half Life series.  At least we'll finally get the ending.

First, every time a new MMO comes out people leave in droves to play it, just like with warhammer, but alot of them end up comming back once the newness wares off. Noone has managed to make a real run for the title of mmo champion since wow came on the scene. I'm not saying WoW is a better game than others out there, but you can't deny that they sell subscriptions like noone else.

Second, Having such a large past and present player base, combined with the big names and huge money thats being thrown at this, even people who have never been interested in video games will probably be interested in seeing the movie. Either way, this will answer a long standing question. Even if you throw all the money in the world at it, will a video game movie still suck? :D only time will tell.

That's it! I'm unplugging my internet, shutting down my pc, and sitting in a corner with a tin foil hat until the conspiracy theories go away!

 Too bad it's a World of Warcraft movie...

 Honestly... there are much better series that could be made

Why not a Command & Conquer Tiberium universe movie quadrillogy or something. That'd be interesting!
