Duncan Jones’ Warcraft movie could be one to watch; even though it’s on few people’s radar at the minute we anticipate this will change once we start seeing actual footage.
Meanwhile at Blizzcon in Anaheim, an event that celebrates Blizzard Entertainment, a new promotion for Duncan Jones’ movie has been launched to encourage fans to decide which side of the war they’re going with – The Horde or The Alliance.
And here’s the art from the event (scroll down)…
The characters/ actors for the alliance will be:
Anduin Lothar (Travis Fimmel): The lead protagonist for the Alliance, Lothar is a war hero who has sacrificed everything to keep the people of Azeroth safe.
King Llane Wrynn (Dominic Cooper): King Llane is the leader of the Alliance city of Stormwind and a beacon of hope to its people in a time of darkness.
Medivh (Ben Foster): Known as ‘the Guardian,’ Medivh is a mysterious and reclusive protector who wields formidable power.
Khadgar (Ben Schnetzer): Khadgar is a gifted young mage, embarking on a daring search for the truth.
Lady Taria (Ruth Negga): Taria is the royal Queen of Stormwind, King Llane’s great love and most trusted counsel.
Garona (Paula Patton): Caught between the Alliance and the Horde, Garona is a strong-willed survivor who must decide where her true loyalty lies.
And for the Horde…
Durotan (Toby Kebbel): The lead protagonist for the Horde, Durotan is the noble Chieftain of the Frostwolf Clan, battling to save his people and his family from extinction.
Orgrim (Rob Kazinsky): Orgrim is Durotan’s right hand and a brave warrior destined to wield the Doomhammer: a weapon of orc legend.
Blackhand (Clancy Brown): Known as ‘The Destroyer’, Blackhand is one of orc-kind’s most fearsome and titanic warchiefs.
Gul’Dan (Daniel Wu): Gul’dan is a supreme orc ruler, fueled by a dark magic that even he cannot control.
Actor Rob Kazinsky (Pacific Rim) has been announced as joining the cast too.
Directed by Duncan Jones with a script by Charles Leavitt rewritten by Jones, the story of the film will center on Anduin Lothar versus Durotan, Human and Orc heroes from the original RTS games. The movie will also be focused largely in the Eastern Kingdoms of Azeroth.
The movie stars Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger), Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma), Travis Fimmel (Vikings), Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol), Toby Kebbell (The Counselor), and Rob Kazinsky (Pacific Rim).
Warcraft will hit theaters on March 11, 2016.
