Duncan Jones is taking on a daunting task by directing the Warcraft film. The amount of content available to pull from, the popularity of the universe, and the viciousness of the fanboys are all reasons that it could all go south pretty fast. However, if everything falls into place and Jones pulls it off, it could be a movie that every fan can be proud of.
The first look images of Orgrim Doomhammer, the Orc Chief, are certainly helping the films cause. Played by actor Robert Kazinsky, Doomhammer looks great. Special effects masters Industrial Light and Magic are really showing off some serious talent here.
The movie in general has been extremely quiet and very little details about the film have been released. What we do know is there are plenty of great stories to pull from in the Warcraft lore and a lot of them would make a great film. Let’s hope it all comes together.
