Warcraft Movie Concept Art
After years of rumors, delays, and speculation it appears the Warcraft movie has finally begun filming. Director Duncan Jones tweeted late last night that today was going to be the first shoot day, but wasn't exactly specific if this was related to Warcraft or not. The originally reported shoot schedule of January, plus tweets such as this leads us to believe that it is indeed Warcraft. Joining him on the Vancouver, Canada set will be Warcraft's list of stars: Travis Fimmell, Dominic Cooper, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Robert Kazinsky, Clancy Brown, Toby Kebbell, and Daniel Wu.


Warcraft will be an orcs vs. humans origin story, featuring the characters of Anduin Lothar and Durotan. We know little else about the movie's plot or characters but you can check out our Warcraft movie panel liveblog from BlizzCon 2013 for more information. The film has an announced release date of March 11, 2016. Do you think Warcraft will buck the trend of mediocre video game to movie adaptations?
