While it still isn't known when the trailer will be released for the highly-anticipated video game adaptation Warcraft, new photos have arrived featuring the orc character Ogrim, played by Robert Kazinsky. We got our first look at Warcraft's Ogrim back in November, but these latest images offer a much closer look at the monstrous character. Director Duncan Jones has revealed in a new interview that they were looking for someone to portray the 'gruffness' and 'humor' of Ogrim, which they found in Robert Kazinsky.
"We were looking for someone who would be able to perform the gruffness, the humor, and the toughness of this character."
The look of Ogrim came from the visual effects wizards at Industrial Light and Magic (ILM), who used concept art from Blizzard Entertainment, the company that produces the Warcraft video games, and combined them with photos of Robert Kazinsky. The result will likely be the most life-like CGI creation in movie history, with director Duncan Jones commenting on how much the technology to create these characters has evolved throughout the years.
"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."
Warcraft also stars Ben Foster, Toby Kebbell, Travis Fimmel, Dominic Cooper, Paula Patton, Clancy Brown, Daniel Cudmore, Ben Schnetzer and Callum Keith Rennie. The video game adaptation was recently pushed from the spring of 2016 to June 10, 2016, giving it a prime summer release date. Check out the photos below, and let us know what you think about Ogrim below.
