LOS ANGELES: Filmmaker Duncan Jones spoke emotionally Monday about how his rock legend father David Bowie would have been proud of his new movie “Warcraft” at its worldwide premiere in Los Angeles.
The 45-year-old Londoner was among a host of stars at the TCL Chinese Theatre for the screening as hundreds of fans, many dressed in costumes from the film, lined Hollywood Boulevard, clapping and cheering.
“I think he´d be incredibly happy that I followed my passion which he always told me to do,” Jones said, when asked what his father would have made of the film.
Bowie, who was born in London but lived his final years in New York, was one of the most influential artists in rock history and also had a wide impact on theater and fashion.
He died on January 10 from a battle with liver cancer that he had disclosed to few outsiders — two days after his 69th birthday and the release of his final album, “Blackstar.”
Based on the global smash hit video game World Of Warcraft, CGI extravaganza “Warcraft” tells of the initial battles between humans and orcs.
“I did get to show a couple of early bits and pieces and I think he was really amazed by what we were doing, and it was lovely to be able to do that,” said Jones.
The director´s third film after critical hits “Moon” in 2009 and “Source Code” in 2011, “Warcraft” debuts in the United States on Friday.
