And there are plenty of martial arts movies made in HK & China. Age of Wushu would not stand out in anyway.

 

Hero grossed almost 200 million worldwide. Jet Li is averaging a little over 200 million gross per film.

Not really. Even movies like Fearless (which is great) does not gross anything close to 200M.

Plus, 200M ww is small potential compared to US blockbuster. Iron man 3 made more than $1.2B.

200M would deem a flop for a tentpole (like Superman Returns).

 

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1300854/business?ref_=tt_dt_bus it only made 400mil not 1.2B. Also Wow would def win this because its wow...im sure their budget will be 10 times bigger than Age of Wushu. And will proly have big names in it too!

Are those people gonna choose the "evil," "addicting" warcraft movie or some good ol wholesome Jet Li, Wushu butt kicking?

Well like someone said, the style of movie may sell big in China, but I don't see it doing well here.  Maybe I'm wrong.  Jet Li is getting kind of old and there is a huge cultural barrier.  I mean, in the west right now, Game of Thrones is HUGE.  You can't tell me that fantasy-hungry cinema fans aren't going to eat up a Warcraft film.

lol "evil" and "addicting".  It's a movie.  If people aren't getting upset over Harry Potter or Twilight anymore, they're not going to care about the Lich King.

By the way, someone might have mentioned it already, but who's to say WoW will not (ie: will definitely have) bigger names than Jet Li?

Were talking worldwide now. Remember Wushu has more players than WoW worldwide, PLUS there are more martial arts fans than mmorpg gamers.

 

You gonna take you girl to go see a WoW movie or a movie staring Jet Li, like Hero?


"Players"

 

I think you meant accounts. A player would be indicative of a sentient being controlling a playable character would it not?

 

However you have to ask yourself what would a studio choose, if they HAD to choose. You're looking sound quality, animation quality, budget production. Everything that makes up the game would come into consideration.

 

Also that last part about taking a girl to see a "Jet li" movie it'd have to be Ocean Paradise, not only have his movies been hovering around a 5/10, but finding a woman with similar cinematography tastes as Katherine Moennig would probably be more trouble than the development cycle of an mmo.

 

Anyways the OP is probably a 12 year old who has yet to fully grasp how the world works. However OP, you keep thinking that Wushu actually has more players, because it warms my heart in the dumbest way possible.

WTF is Age of Wushu?

In general, if you would ask the average person in the US the question "have you heard of World of Warcraft"?, I think most would know what that is. Age of Wushu, they would probably say "what is that?" I'm not not sure about China, but I'm guessing WoW is still well known compared to AoW. Yes 20 million players there is a lot, but when you are talking of over a billion people, that really isn't that much.

Age of Wushu themes have been done over and over. World of Warcraft imho would be more unique and have more appeal.

The real question isn't what will be bigger, but what is more enjoyable. I voted for WoW simply because it has the lore that would make it better.

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

Idk guys 9 million WoW gamers ain't much compared to the Wushu Jet Li Martial Arts movie army! 

 

 

IM pretty sure WoW has more registered players than age of wushu (been out longet). And that is enough to go spend a few bucks out of curiosity to see the movie of a game you once tried.

You're pretty wrong. Age of Wushu 15-20 million players. So your gonna have to come with a better scenario that that 

 

My guildie said if WoW had Russel Crow as Arthas and James Earl Jones as the voice of his father, and some celeb lady as Janna it could be big. That's the best WoW scenario I've heard thus far  That's kinda Epic. "No MORE!!!!"

 

LMAO !

 

Really, 15 to 20 million players ? All playing currently ? How many active servers do they have now, 200 or 300 or maybe 500 even ? 

 

C'mon, you do know that F2P games never actually "LOSE" any players, don't you ? Their player numbers only ever increase, because every single person that created an account since the start of open beta becomes part of the "registered player" total, regardless if they only played for 5mins then uninstalled...

I mentioned it. Thinking that WoW will be a cinematic, my guildie sad They could get Russel Crow voice for Arthas and James Earl Jones for his father. That's their only chance! Otherwise it get steam rolled by The Crouching Tiger, Hero Jet Li martial arts action movie train!

Age of what now? Get real, son...

Plus, how many times has Jet Li said xx movie will be the "last" one he'll ever be in? I'm not sure that many people would care any more. I think the last time I saw him was in a minor role during the Expendables.

I believe many in this thread are comparing active paid accounts (the WoW numbers cited) to total accounts (the AoW numbers cited).  AoW accounts are being counted whether the are active or not.  I know there are four inactive AoW accounts in my household that will never be logged into again that are probably in the AoW numbers.  If you add up all of the WoW accounts ever made I'm sure their numbers are way higher than AoW's numbers.

When they announce the cast, this poll should be redone, even though it's already sadly not in favor of Wushu.

"Which will be bigger?

Russel Crowe, Scarlett Johansen, Clint Eastwood, Liam Neeson, Jamie Foxx, Emma Stone, Samuel L. Jackson World of Warcraft

or

Jet Li Wushu"

Why add his name if you weren't seriously doubting confidence in the poll?  Very premature discussion, really.  You know Blizzard is going to shock the world when it releases the casting news.

Oh yeah!  He was in that, though he was clearly outshined by the other action stars.  Good pointless action flick.

That being the case, I would think that the WoW movie will do quite well, particularly in the West. 

Will the graphics be as good as LOTR?  If WoW puts a sexy gay male elf in their movie I'll resubscribe tho I've been away for more than five years.

And nothing, I didn't claim to be all of anything.  I just don't know if I'd watch a Wushu movie, but I do like Jet Li movies better than that running-on-trees romance in the desert bs.

It will be a generic chinese kung-fu movie, titled "Age of Wushu". I don't see any story/lore/plot in Age of Wushu and Google says: https://www.google.rs/search?client=opera&q=age+of+wushu+lore&sourceid=opera&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&channel=suggest

And the very 1st result (EPIC FAIL!!!) - http://www.ageofwushu.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=11985

Guess what? Wow can make also generic shit movie, even worse than AoW, but still will be better. But, not gonna happens, sorry. And Wow has this: http://www.wowpedia.org/Novel_guide

Someone or OP said AoW has 15-20 million players - well, don't believe me, I don't have any source or evidence, but Blizzard games since WC3 played 50 milion unique players. So, that's 2x more. If someone want proves, prove me your statement, I'll do mine, for sure.

Also, Jet Li sux, Bruce Lee is way much better - if he would be main actor in AoW, Wow movie has nothing to do here, can only watch how AoW beats it easily. Bruce Lee is the only one who defeated Chuck Norris - but unfortunatelly is dead... Chuck is still alive and guess what??? Wow has Chuck Norris: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKYlARdbU1o

So, AoW movie is already doomed. Chuck Norris, it is.

A World Of Warcraft movie could have a full cast of unknown actors and still destroy any attempt of an Age Of Wushu movie.

I'm sorry, but the only way I would watch a AoW movie by choice is if Donnie Yen was the star, not Jet Li. Donnie Yen is amazing, much better than Jet Li imo. He's just not as popular. If you don't know who he is watch IP Man and IP Man 2. Either of those are better than any movie Jet has ever put out, sorry.

 

WoW will win the movie war. Let's be honest. You're comparing numbers world wide for a f2p game to a sub game. Err ummm okay. WoW may infact be down to 7 million people, but how many people altogether have ever tried WoW at least once? I doubt the claims of 15-20 million people playing AoW world wide very much. Even if they are counting registrations on their website I couldn't see them passing the 10 mil mark. You can point to 1-2 articles with 15-20 million players! I'll show you 30-50 articles with 10 million WoW subs.

Strictly on fan-boys WoW wins. As far as the general public is concerned that depends on the movie. I would assume WoW will have a better script/cast/director because of the money that can be thrown at it.

 

I personally won't go to a theater to see either movie, but if I was sitting at home looking for something to watch and they were both on I would have to go by audience reviews/actors in the films to make my decision.
