The Warcraft movie's Orcs look amazing

Blizzard Entertainment and Legendary Pictures released new images of their upcoming Warcraft movie today, giving us a clear look at the very impressive, computer-generated Orc known as Orgrim Doomhammer.

We've gotten a glimpse of Orgrim before, but thanks to stills published by Wired, we see just how impressive Industrial Light and Magic's CG work is going to be.

Orgrim is computer-generated, and he'll be played by actor Rob Kazinsky, whose likeness has been integrated into the character's design.

Warcraft also stars Travis Fimmel as Anduin Lothar, Toby Kebbel as Durotan, Daniel Wu as Gul'dan and Paula Patton as Garona, a half-orc, half-draenei. On the Alliance side, those characters will be joined by Ben Foster, who plays Medivh; Dominic Cooper, as King Llane; Ben Schnetzer, as Khadgar; and Ruth Negga, as Lady Taria.

Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) directed and co-wrote Warcraft. The movie was recently delayed and is now slated to hit theaters June 10, 2016.
