We have been patiently waiting for the Warcraft movie to materialize somehow; and now it looks like things are shaping up.
We have with us the first look at one of the characters in the movie, the Warchief of the Orcish Horde, Orgrim Doomhammer.
He has been designed by Industrial Light & Magic, an Academy Award winning company that excels at visual effects.
Duncan Jones, the director of the Warcraft movie discussed what they were looking for while hiring an actor to play the role of Orgrim in the much awaited movie:
We were looking for someone who would be able to perform the gruffness, the humor, and the toughness of this character.
Apparently, they found all that in Robert Kazinsky, the same guy who was recently chosen for a similar role by Fox i.e. Frankenstein’s monster. The funny part Kazinsky in real life is pretty much a good looking actor who looks nothing like an orc.
When discussing the level of technology and new techniques they now have at their disposal for Warcraft movie, Jones said that they had come a long way:
We’ve gone beyond the point where these are just creatures in movies. We now have the technology and the ability to make new characters entirely.
If you need an evidence of that, you should check out the work of Industrial Light & Magic on Avengers: Age of Ultron.
