Duncan Jones is currently promoting the 4K release of his masterpiece, the Sam Rockwell-led Moon. Jones’ Warcraft film came up during an interview, prompting the director to describe the trilogy that could’ve been. Even now, three years after the film’s release, Jones still seems rather disappointed that his vision didn’t resonate with audiences.
It’s clear that Duncan Jones truly believed in the project and desperately wanted to continue exploring the big, exciting story he’d set up in the first film. Say what you will about the film itself, but you’ve gotta admit that the director absolutely poured his heart into this project.
There were whispers of a director’s cut, but Duncan Jones himself shot those rumors down as quickly as they’d popped up. His reasoning carried a finality that even the film’s most passionate supporters couldn’t ignore. So yeah, the franchise is dead. However, if you love Jones’ work and want to see what he’s been up to, check out Mute on Netflix.
