Almost a year after shooting wrapped, “Warcraft” is finally ready to reveal the first image of their Orcs. Meet Ogrim Doomhammer (Robert Kazinsky), born of the Thunderlord Clan, leader of the Blackrock Clan, Warchief of the Horde, and an all-around Orc”s orc.
The images, first revealed on WIRED, show the finished Ogrim created by the artistic masterminds at Industrial Light and Magic. They combined state-of-the-art CGI with both Doomhammer concept art from “World of Warcraft” and Robert Kazinsky”s face to create what is hopefully “[…] the most life-like CGI orc audiences have ever seen.”
As the film also stars Toby Kebbell as Durotan and Travis Fimmel as Lothar – according to IMDB – Doomhammer”s rise to power is only a tiny sliver of the story. With Gul”dan, Medivh, and Khadgar in the mx, the writing is on the wall. Duncan Jones appears to be finally telling the tale upon which so much of WoW”s lore and current affairs revolve around.
“Warcraft” arrives in theaters on June 10, 2016.
