World of Warcraft movie to complete filming in three weeks

Filming on Warcraft, the movie based on Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft series, is set to be completed May 23, three weeks from today, said director Duncan Jones on Twitter yesterday.

"We're done shooting Warcraft in 3 weeks as of tomorrow! Holy shnikey," said Jones.

Warcraft is in production at Legendary Pictures in partnership with Universal Pictures. Jones and Blizzard executives revealed during a BlizzCon 2013 panel that the movie focuses on the orc-versus-human war, and makes an effort to build empathy among viewers for orcs. The cast of Warcraft includes Ben Foster (Lone Survivor3:10 to Yuma) and Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, Precious).

Originally scheduled to be released Dec. 18, 2015, Warcraft is now set to hit theaters March 11, 2016.
