Blizzard Entertainment’s big annual event BlizzCon hit the Anaheim Convention Center south of Los Angeles this weekend and director Duncan Jones was there to unveil new details about the Warcraft movie headed to cinemas in 2016. He was also on hand to show off the posters for the conflicting sides in the combat, which you can check out lower down the page.
Aiming to delve into the reasons, problems and consequences of war, Jones’ film will take a look at the combat from both sides: the mortal Alliance races and the seemingly evil, destructive Horde comprised of orcs, trolls and more.
The main characters for the Alliance side include Anduin Lothar (Travis Fimmel), a war hero who has sacrificed everything to keep the people of Azeroth safe; King Llane Wrynn (Dominic Cooper), the leader of the Alliance city of Stormwind and a beacon of hope to its people in a time of darkness; Medivh (Ben Foster), AKA “the Guardian,” a mysterious and reclusive protector who wields formidable power; Khadgar (Ben Schnetzer), a gifted young mage, embarking on a daring search for the truth; Lady Taria (Ruth Negga), the royal Queen of Stormwind, King Llane’s great love and most trusted counsel; and Garona (Paula Patton), a strong-willed survivor who must decide where her true loyalty lies when she’s caught between both sides.
On the opposing side we have Durotan (Toby Kebbel), the noble Chieftain of the Frostwolf Clan who is battling to save his people and his family from extinction; Orgrim (Rob Kazinsky), Durotan’s right hand and a brave warrior destined to wield the Doomhammer, a weapon of orc legend; Blackhand (Clancy Brown), known as “The Destroyer,” one of orc-kind’s most fearsome and titanic warchiefs; and Gul’dan (Daniel Wu), a supreme orc ruler, fuelled by a dark magic that even he cannot control.
If you’re itching to join the fight on either side, you can do so via the film’s new rival websites, which allow you to sign up for the Alliance or the Horde. Or both, if you’re looking to be duplicitous…
Warcraft will march into our cinemas on March 11, 2016.

I’ve uploaded to the gallery a few pictures of Dominic’s character ‘Angel Gabriel’ from ‘On Angel Wings’. I’ve also found a selection of clips from several different shows but it does feature Dominic only for a couple of seconds though. Fast forward to 0:57.
The author Ian Fleming’s name is, to some extent, forever knitted to his most famous fictional creation: the iconic British spy, James Bond.
For actor Dominic Cooper, who plays Fleming in a new biographical drama mini series, the role was a revelation. Not just of Fleming himself, but of the fact that Fleming and his fictional creation were more similar than most people know.
“I was quite surprised to find how few people really knew anything about what Ian Fleming did or went through, seeing that his books have become one of the most successful film franchises of all time,” Cooper says. “There were two very different ideas of who the man was. It was still unclear what really, really had happened and what was truth and what was fiction.

Dominic Cooper: “The Last Time I…”

The British actor on playing tennis, James Cordon and singing Duran Duran
…Wielded a sword
On set for Dracula Untold [origin story of Vlad the Impaler; Cooper plays his friend turned foe, Mehmed the Conqueror]. I trained for months. But more often that not I’d arrive on set for filming and none of what I’d learned would work because of scenery or space or the dialogue.
…Played a video game
Earlier this year. I tried out Need for Speed after I’d done the film [based on the racing-game franchise]. I’d not played properly since I was a kid, when I asked for a Commodore Amiga and got a Sinclair Spectrum. That sent me into mourning for a bit.
Earlier this year in France, because you have to wear Speedos in any swimming pool there for hygiene reasons. I’m not sure why shorts are any less hygienic.
…Had a full-bladed shave
Was to play Ian Fleming [in BBC America mini-series Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond]. It was quite refreshing. I felt like a small piece of mackerel that’s just been filleted.
Last weekend against some ladies in their seventies . I don’t like the gym. I can’t bear running on a machine. It’s not enough for me to use a treadmill just because I want nice thighs.
…Sang in public
was probably very recently. I’m always at some awful karaoke machine. I do Duran Duran’s ‘Hungry Like the Wolf’ or INXS’s ‘Never Tear Us Apart’. I’ve not sung on screen since the Abba musical,Mamma Mia! in 2008. No one’s paid for it since.
was when I started acting. It’s incredible and astonishing anyone is interested or would write anything or have an opinion on you. Then you realise you don’t necessarily want to hear their opinions.
…Saw James Corden
May this year. We went back to a bar, Deacon Brodie’s Tavern, we used to frequent when we lived in New York together in 2006, performing in the Broadway transfer of The History Boys. We happened to be in the city at the same time, which is always a recipe for a brilliant disaster. I think we made up a song.
