It’s been a long time coming, but finally we’re starting to see actual progress being made on the big-screen adaptation of Warcraft.
The production of the film has been kept under some tight wraps, but director Duncan Jones is starting to share a few little teases to warm up us up for the epic man vs orc battle extravaganza.
The first images are of Orgrim, a computer-generated orc featured in the film.

Orgrim was designed by award-winning Star Wars effects studio Industrial Light and Magic. Designers there used concept art provided by Blizzard Entertainment and photos of actor Robert Kazinsky to develop the fearsome character.
“We were looking for someone who would be able to perform the gruffness, the humor, and the toughness of this character,” said Jones of the casting of Kazinsky.
The Warcraft movie is will hit cinemas in June 2016 and also stars Clancy Brown (Spongebob, The Shawshank Redemption) as Blackhand and Dominic Cooper (Need for Speed, Captain America) as King Llane.
