First Image From World of Warcraft Movie Revealed



While many of you out there aren’t interested in video game movies, and we can’t blame you because they’re usually pretty terrible, we’re pinning a lot of hopes on the long awaited adaptation of World of Warcraft, which we really think has a shot.

Warcraft is being directed by Duncan Jones, who has a unique POV as a director and isn’t some hack, and now the first official images from the movies have been unleashed. Here is a shot of Orgrim, who Wired calls the movie’s “hunky star.”

It’s hard to think of this beast as a hunk, obviously Wired is being facetious, but in the day of great motion capture performances, maybe Robert Kazinsky, who plays Orgrim, could end up stealing the movie. As Jones told Wired, “We’ve gone beyond the point where these are just creatures in movies. We now have the technology and the ability to make new characters entirely.”

The World of Warcraft movie, which is simply entitled Warcraft, hits theaters June 10, 2016.
