Details from the showing...
Director Duncan Jones was at Comic-Con today to drop some details on the upcoming Warcraft movie and show off some footage. Here are some highlights:
* The movie will be an origin story about how Azeroth falls into conflict between orcs and humans.
* One of the greatest challenges has been building the sets and world. He compared the scope to Lord of the Rings and the technology to Avatar.
* Travis Fimmell (Vikings) plays the main human character. He rocks long brown hair, a beard, and black shining armor with gold trim. In the footage shown, he wonders if he is worthy of guarding his king and his family. The footage also showed his orc counterpart struggling when his own doubts about being a father.
* The footage also contained shots of Dominic Cooper, Ben Foster's mage casting a spell, and Paula Latton with green skin licking someone.
* The footage was received positively with both the orcs and world looking real and organic.
