Warcraft writer/director Duncan Jones has finally showed fans a glimpse of the movie.

Jones helmed independent sci-fi hits Moon and Source Code, and Warcraft will be his first ever big budget motion picture franchise film.

Warcraft is set to feature a world of fantasy and myth where humans will go head to head with orcs from Blizzard Entertainment's smash game of the same title. Jones recently took to Twitter to share to fans the progress that the film has made in recreating Stormwind and Azeroth.

From the looks of it, Legendary Pictures and Blizzard have invested highly on the film, with reports earlier this year claiming that Blizzard is considering to make the game available to all movie goers for free.

The new behind-the-scenes images from Jones doesn't revealed much, but it's pretty cool to see a director that dedicated and keen on his current project.

Hopefully, Jones' effort will pay off in the long run and we'll see a worthy successor to Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy. Clancy Brown did compare the orcs from Tolkien's epic saga to Warcraft's. We'll have to wait and see whether his claims are true.

Warcraft official synopsis:

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.

Warcraft will hit U.S. theaters on June 10.
