New ‘Warcraft’ Featurette Focuses on the Super Nerdy Production Design

     May 24, 2016


I don’t know how good the story behind Warcraft will be, but from a visual standpoint, director Duncan Jones looks like he’s hit out of the park. Legendary and Universal have released a new featurette for the film that focuses on the production design, and the level of detail Jones and production designer Gavin Bocquet have cooked up for these locations is absolutely astonishing. I also dig the amount of integration between the visual effects and the practical settings. Warcraft continues to be one of the riskiest, but also most exciting promises of the summer movie season, and I really hope it delivers.

Check out the featurette below. Warcraft opens June 10th and stars Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Ben Schnetzer, Rob Kazinsky, and Daniel Wu.

Here’s the official synopsis for Warcraft:

From Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures comes Warcraft, an epic adventure of world-colliding conflict based on Blizzard Entertainment’s global phenomenon.


The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: Orc warriors fleeing their dying home to colonize another. As a portal opens to connect the two worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces extinction. From opposing sides, two heroes are set on a collision course that will decide the fate of their family, their people and their home.

So begins a spectacular saga of power and sacrifice in which war has many faces, and everyone fights for something.


Directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) and written by Charles Leavitt and Jones, the film starring Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Ben Schnetzer, Rob Kazinsky and Daniel Wu is a Legendary Pictures, Blizzard Entertainment and Atlas Entertainment production.


The producers are Charles Roven, Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni, Alex Gartner and Stuart Fenegan. Jillian Share, Brent O’Connor, Michael Morhaime and Paul Sams serve as executive producers. Rob Pardo, Chris Metzen, Nick Carpenter and Rebecca Steel Roven co-produce. Warcraft will be released by Universal Pictures.
