One might say video game adaptations are “cursed”, but the truth is that they’ve all just been bad movies.  But if anyone can make the first successful video game-to-movie adaptation, it’s Duncan Jones.  The Moon and Source Code filmmaker is currently hard at work on a highly anticipated feature film iteration of World of Warcraft, and now the first Warcraft movie image straight from the set has been released online.  It doesn’t reveal any of the cast or even much of the environment, but instead focuses on Jones looking intently at his monitors.  Legendary Pictures has yet to release any plot information from the film, so for now we’re still in the dark, but I’ve got a good feeling about this one.

Hit the jump to check out the first Warcraft movie image.  The film stars Paula Patton, Travis Fimmel, Dominic Cooper, Ben Foster, Toby Kebbell, Rob Kazinsky, Daniel Wu, and Clancy BrownWarcraft opens in 2D and 3D on March 11, 2016.

While official information about Warcraft is hard to come by, we do know that Jones’ film is more influenced by the original iteration of the game series rather than the more contemporary World of Warcraft games.  Moreover, out of BlizzCon 2013 we learned that the pic tells “the story of Anduin Lothar versus Durotan, Human and Orc heroes from the original real-time strategy games.”  Early concept art also teased Stormwind, Draenor, and Dalaran as locations that we’ll see in the film.  Filming is currently underway in Vancouver.
