Warcraft the movie has wrapped - but won't be out until 2016

The Warcraft movie will take Orcs vs Humans as its premise.

Men and women in caps (crew) and helmets (cast) have finished filming the Warcraft movie. Hooray! Let’s give them a week to reel it all up and then we’ll all go and see it, yeah?

‘Fraid not. Warcraft will now be handed over to Industrial Light and Magic, who’ll subject it to enough special effects and post-processing work to keep it unseen till 2016.

“Final day on Warcraft now officially... wrapped!!,” tweeted director Duncan Jones on Friday. “Off to bed for 3 hours before a meeting in the AM.”

Halfway through the shoot, nine weeks ago, Jones wrote a tribute to his crew for Empire magazine - in which he compared his team of “Oscar-winners and nominees” to the Magnificent Seven.

Warcraft’s inner circle included Life of Pi VFX supervisor Bill Westenhofer, Star Wars Episodes I, II and III production designer Gavin Bocquet, Avatar costume designer Mayes Rubeo, Great Gatsby director of photography Simon Duggan, Django Unchained sound editor Wylie Stateman, and Star Wars Episodes IV and V editor Paul Hirsch.

“Amazing people... and they’ve all come together to make Warcraft,” said Jones. “And I get it! I know why they want to do it. We’re doing something that doesn’t happen much in Hollywood movies anymore.

“We’re creating a great, big, grin-inducing surprise! And for that reason, I don’t want to tell you too much”.

Coo! Actor and Warcraft star Dominic Cooper recently said the prospect of living up to Blizzard fans was “terrifying”, but it sounds like he's been in good hands.

Warcraft will be out on March 11 in 2016, apparently. Do you know what you’ll be doing on that day in two years’ time?

Thanks, CVG.

Why are video game movies becoming such a big thing? It makes no sense to me to take the best part of the game the interactivity out of it. Is it just part of the whole casual game thing where games are getting easier so that more people can get into them? To me video games take movies to the next level by allowing you to participate in it. Why you would want to remove that participation is beyond me.

Interactivity is a key part of the entertainment I agree. Though some games have succeeded in creating lore which people are very much interested in. The hard part is creating a good movie from it.
