It was a year ago that Duncan Jones announced that filming was complete on his Warcraft adaptation, and the lengthy post-production process got underway. Things have been very quiet, but tonight we finally get a glimpse at what Jones has been working on, by way of two images (above and below).
The images were shared by Wired, and give fans their first look at the orc Orgrim (Robert Kazinsky). “Orgrim is Durotan’s right hand and a brave warrior destined to wield the Doomhammer: a weapon of orc legend.” Said Jones, and when talking about Kazinsky playing the role he said “We were looking for someone who would be able to perform the gruffness, the humor, and the toughness of this character” (Durotan, played by Toby Kebbell, is the lead protagonist of the Horde and fighting to protect his people from extinction.)
The images show off some truly jaw-dropping CGI.
The cast includes Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Clancy Brown, Robert Kazinsky and Daniel Wu.
Warcraft is expected in cinemas on 11th March 2016.
