If there is one thing Warcraft is known for in its virtual form, it is expansion. So it somehow makes sense that the film based on the game is also undergoing a little escalating, at least in its title, now named Warcraft: The Beginning.
Source Code (2011) director Duncan Jones is putting the finishing touches to the film, which promises to show both sides of the story set in the seemingly peaceful realm of Azeroth, poised to descend into bitter war between man and orc when a portal opens between their two worlds. We will meet the likes of battle hardened warrior Anduin Lothar (Travis Fimmel), the commander of the human forces and champion of his king, Llane Wrynn (Dominic Cooper). But as opposed to the usual faceless hordes of monsters attacking them, we will also follow the Orcs, who arrive because they are fleeing the destruction of their own home world, and are led by Durotan (Toby Kebbell).
Warcraft: The Beginning invades cinemas on both sides of the pond on 3 June 2016.
