Warcraft Is Coming: A Brief Snippet Of The Humans Vs Orcs Epic Is Unveiled [Footage]


Travis Fimmel Ben Foster Duncan Jones

War is coming. At least, that's what the first teaser for the upcoming 'Warcraft' film would have us believe. Don't get too excited though; this new trailer for the live-action epic gives virtually nothing away and is pretty much over in the blink of an eye.

WarcraftThe war is on! Humans and orcs battle in Azeroth

Never fear, though, because you won't have long to wait for the real trailer as it is set to arrive on Friday in all its glory (November 6th 2015). So far, all we know is that the film involves some long-haired, sword-wielding warriors riding giant eagles across sprawling, majestic seaside kingdoms, while being attacked by enormous, man-eating wolves in poor weather conditions and somehow finding themselves in possession of rather anachronistic weaponry. All of this you could've guessed if you are fan of the online role-playing game 'World Of Warcraft'.

The Program Review

Very Good

A whooshing pace and snappy dialogue help bring this true story to life, tracing the triumphant and scandalous career of cyclist Lance Armstrong. And the energetic approach helps bring out several layers in Armstrong's perspective, exploring why a top sportsman would cheat to win. It also features a steely performance from Ben Foster that captures Armstrong's physicality and personality, but not in the usual ways.

When he was 25, Armstrong (Foster) was already a star, but his career was cut short in 1996 by advanced testicular cancer. After recovering, he retrained himself as a long-distance cyclist and launched a global cancer charity, then went on to win seven Tour de France titles. His friend, Irish journalist David Walsh (Chris O'Dowd) noticed that his improvement was too good to be true, and continually challenged him to be honest about his work with controversial doctor Michele Ferari (Guillaume Canet). Armstrong defended his name in court, but years later the truth came out that throughout his career he had been systematically cheating with banned drugs and blood-cleansing processes. The truth came out in 2010, but he didn't admit the deception until an interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2013.

Since this was so thoroughly reported in the media, and finely detailed in Alex Gibney's acclaimed documentary The Armstrong Lie, there aren't any surprises in this movie. And despite being based on Walsh's book Seven Deadly Sins, the film takes Armstrong's perspective, trying to get under his skin to reveal his motivation. John Hodge's screenplay is insightful, building some strong dramatic suspense along the way, and the film is sharply well-directed by Stephen Frears, a filmmaker better known for softer movies (like Philomena and The Queen). But he guides Foster to a strikingly physical performance that's sweaty and aggressive, and also darkly internalised. Stand-outs in the supporting cast include Jesse Plemons as a fellow cyclist haunted by his conscience and Denis Menochet as Armstrong's team manager.

Ben Foster Reveals Drugs He Took In Preparation For Lance Armstrong Role "Damaged" His Body


Ben Foster Lance Armstrong Chris O'Dowd

Ben Foster, the actor who is portraying the disgraced former world champion cyclist Lance Armstrong in the upcoming movie The Program, has revealed the alarming effects that performance-enhancing drugs have had on his body.

Speaking to the BBC’s ‘Newsbeat’, the 34 year old actor said that he took part in an entirely legal “programme which was supervised by a doctor” that took place before shooting commenced, because he wanted to “better understand why they took drugs”.

The Program is released on Wednesday October 14th in Britain, having been out in North America a month ago, and is an adaptation of a book called ‘Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit of Lance Armstrong’ by journalist David Walsh (played by Chris O’Dowd in the movie). Foster was intent on getting as close to the mindset of a competitive cyclist as possible, but concluded that the drugs “definitely damaged” his body despite only being on them for a short time.

The Program Trailer


Lance Armstrong was an athlete the entire world loved to support. Having beaten testicular cancer the cyclist went on to win numerous titles around the world including seven gold consecutive gold medals for the Tour De France, which has become known as the hardest bike rice in the world. He had few doubters, everyone loved the superman that he'd become and wanted to believe in the story surrounding his success. 

One of those few doubters was David Walsh, a sports reporter with The Sunday Times newspaper. After digging into Lance and his team mates, Walsh began to build a case with more and more information backing his thoughts on Lance. One such piece of evidence was Armstrong's connection to an Italian doctor named Michele Ferrari. What followed was years of Walsh digging and uncovering the real truth behind Armstrong. 

The Program is based on David Walsh's 2012 book 'Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit of Lance Armstrong'.

The Finest Hours Trailer


It's 1952 and a routine shipment is being undertaken by the crew of an oil tanker travelling along the coast of Cape Cod. However, little did they know of a disastrous oncoming storm that would brutally attack New England like never before. As bad luck would have it, the crew on board the vessel find their tanker suddenly ripped in half by the hurricane and they are forced to await the Coast Guard for rescue unable to move from their sinking boat. 30 men are trapped, not knowing whether anyone was coming to rescue them, not knowing whether or not this was their last night on Earth. After all, it would be a suicide mission for any lifeboat to attempt a rescue in these conditions, but that's exactly what happens. A feat of outstanding bravery for this East Coast Guard.

The Program - First Look Trailer


Lance Armstrong is a cycling legend, with seven Tour De France wins under his belt among other accolades, feats that were made all the more impressive following his battle and subsequent recovery from testicular cancer. Despite his illness, he seemed better than ever before on the road on his return and by 2004, he had attracted the attention of reporter David Walsh, who grew suspicious that the athlete was using performance enhancing drugs, along with many of his cyclist friends. Armstrong used a genius combination of loopholes and convincing acting to make people believe otherwise but he was ultimately exposed and shamed for his tactics by a determined journalist.
