New photo from set of Warcraft movie goes behind the scenes

new photo set warcraft movie goes behind scenes concept art

We may have just shy of two years to wait until the Warcraft movie hits theaters, but the first image from the set of the film found its way online this week.

The photo debuted in the latest issue of Empire magazine (via BuzzHub) and features Warcraft director Duncan Jones (Moon) seated in front of several monitors revealing some on-set activity. While there’s not a lot of action happening on the screens, the image does confirm that the project is indeed happening – something that seemed relatively uncertain at various points over the last few years of development on the film.

Warcraft director Duncan Jones

The Warcraft movie is currently filming in Vancouver, and the release date was previously pushed back from late 2015 to March 11, 2016. The announced cast thus far includes Ben Foster (Pandorum), Travis Fimmel (Vikings), Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol), Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans), Rob Kazinsky (Pacific Rim), Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger), Daniel Wu (Europa Report), and Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption), although the characters each actor will play have not been revealed.

During last year’s BlizzCon event, Jones indicated that the film will tell an “origin story” of the conflict between humans and orcs that forms the centerpiece of the popular franchise. Human character Anduin Lothar and orc Durotan, father of Thrall, will be the focal points for the film’s narrative. Jones hinted that Warcraft will explore the perspective on both sides of the historic conflict between the races.

When it does finally hit theaters the Warcraft movie will receive a 2D and 3D release. With two full convention seasons between now and the movie’s premiere, we can expect to see quite a few more teasers as we inch ever closer to March 2016.
