Director Duncan Jones sent members of his Warcraft cast to "orc camp" to teach them how to walk like the towering beasts they portray in the fantasy film.
The movie, an adaptation of the hit video game franchise World of Warcraft, features the battle between humans and orc warriors, who invade Azeroth to escape extinction from their own dying world of Draenor.
To prepare his orc actors for the project, Duncan set up a special training camp so they could all learn how to carry themselves as their movements were captured on film using modern technology, and then transformed onscreen with the help of computer-generated imagery.
During an appearance on U.S. breakfast show Today with actor Rob Kazinsky, Duncan explained, "The orcs have this very specific way that they had to move and walk, so we had a movement coach, who actually took Rob and a bunch of the other people who were doing that work into Orc Camp, where they basically had to learn a vocabulary of movement."

Reese Witherspoon's daughter looks just like her mum! Witherspoon posted a photograph with her 15-year-old daughter Ava on Instagram on Thursday (30th April) and their similarity is certainly striking. Witherspoon and Eva were getting ready for the Los Angeles premiere of Witherspoon's latest film, Hot Pursuit, when the photo was taken. Ava is Witherspoon's daughter with her ex-husband, Ryan Phillippe. Although Ava looked remarkably like her mother, she certainly has a look of Phillippe about her - especially around the nose!

[Spoilers] No one saw this character death coming...
True Blood season seven, episode three premiered with a bang last night, killing off one of the series characters in a twist no one saw coming. Well, not exactly no one: Joe Manganiello's character Alcide met his untimely demise after being shot but the actor has said he had sensed a change in the wind for some time.
In dramatic final season style, werewolf Alcide Herveaux was coldly shot in the chest before being shot again in the face by the gun-wielding humans of Bon Temps.
"I called it! I called it last year," the actor told Buzzfeed. "As soon as I read the Season 6 finale and saw that Sookie [Anna Paquin] got with Alcide, I turned to my then-girlfriend right away and said, 'They're going to kill me - and if they don't, they're crazy.'"
Dominic Cooper is set to star in 'Warcraft' alongside Ben Foster, Toby Kebbell and Rob Kazinsky.

The threat may have been vampires initially yet the story lines have included a whole host of supernatural creatures including fairies, werewolves, shape-shifters and even occasionally a good old fashioned human murderer. Plot lines have run wild on a number of occasions, leaving viewers desperately trying to remember where we left a character; what creature they were and how on earth they survived a bullet wound to the head.

'Grown Ups 2' has beaten off 'Pacific Rim' in the US Weekend Box Office. 'Despicable Me 2' remains at No.1 for the second week since its release. New releases, due on 19th July, may alter the somewhat stagnant Box Office next week.
Grown Ups 2 has placed ahead of Pacific Rim in the US Weekend Box Office. Adam Sandler's comedy received highly critical reviews, in contrast with the mixed response Pacific Rim received.

Critics may have universally panned Adam Sandler's latest comedic contribution yet it's somehow managed to beat the other new release, Pacific Rim, in the US Weekend Box Office (12th-14th July). Despicable Me 2 topped the Box Office charts for the second week in a row.
The best thing about this massive blockbuster is the way it updates the classic Japanese monster movie to the 21st century, with a first-rate cast and staggeringly good effects. Sadly, the script isn't up to scratch, throwing in enjoyable comedy and corny melodrama while maintaining such a formulaic structure that there isn't a single moment of actual suspense. We never doubt for a second how all of this is going to end or who will survive.
It all begins in the present day, as gigantic creatures called kaiju appear through a temporal rift in the Pacific Ocean floor near Hong Kong. They start attacking cities (inexplicably starting with San Francisco), and humanity takes years to fight back, building massive robots called jaegers that are piloted by two-man teams. Over even more years of fighting, the monsters learn how to stop the jaegers, so military leader Pentecost (Elba) assembles his best jaeger pilots in Hong Kong, including the haunted Becket (Hunnam) and father-son Aussie duo Herc and Chuck (Martini and Kazinsky). And as they plan their assault, the scientist Newt (Day) makes a startling discovery about the kaiju.
Most of the film is played as a massively over-serious action movie in which manly, muscly heroes set out to save the planet. The relational melodrama always feels like a distraction, including Pentecost's assistant (Kikuchi), who wants to be a pilot and carries a torch for Becket. There's also a dose of bromance as Newt tries to loosen up his so-British sidekick (Gorman). And to help spice things up, we also get some comic relief from Perlman, who is hilarious as a swaggering black-market dealer. None of these characters is very complicated, but the gifted actors all do what they can with the roles.
