Warcraft Concept Art Online
Duncan Jones heads to Blizzcon to talk up the film

This weekend was the annual Blizzcon event, which lets fans of Warcraft, StarCraft and other Blizzard Entertainment titles come together to swap stories, ogle new product and be shown presentations of upcoming games and expansions. With the Warcraft movie now on track for 2015, director Duncan Jones took time out from pre-production to hit Los Angeles and introduce some new concept art for the movie version and discuss his ideas.

Talking about the script to an audience that included reporters from gaming site Kotaku, Jones explained that he wanted to bring balance to a screenplay that was, at first, very human-centric. "It's about both sides. It's going to be red and blue."

Jones had also brought along some of his crew, including special effects supervisor Bill Westenhofer (a confirmed fan of the game), who explained that the majority of the Orcs will be created using actors in makeup instead of CGI, with swords already being fashioned that are the biggest a human can conceivably wield.

With shooting set to start in Vancouver early next year and the release is still currently scheduled for December 18, 2015, which has just been invaded by a certain other huge genre project. Jones tweeted a comically defiant retort, but we suspect Warcraft will shift out of the way of the Wars
