Unknown voice in the Sneak Peak Can't Post

At 1:13 in the new trailer there's a - for me - strange unknown voice saying: "Our time has come again."

At first I thought it might be the orc interrogated by the elves but it seems to have a certain echo which the orc does not.

Could this perhaps be one of the Nazgul? It can't be the Necromancer as it does not sound like Cumberbatch at all.
Or is it Bolg?

What are your thoughts on this?

Cheers

orc [In reply to] Can't Post

though it does sound slightly different, i do believe this is the same orc. i was at the fan event screening of the extra 20mins, and this scene has quite alot of exposition and he does go on about a power returning etc, im pretty sure it was him.

This is a serious journey, not a hobbit walking-party.

good question! [In reply to] Can't Post

i do remember thinking is that cgi or prosthetic? i think it was cgi in the style of prosthetic, but maybe a combination of both for the close up.

If it was cgi... [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm most impressed. It looks very natural but at the same time, too 'perfect' to be makeup. In short, I really feel like I'm looking at a real living, breathing orc. Well done weta... well done.

The Orc is prosthetic (at least partially). [In reply to] Can't Post

We've seen a number of clips of this scene being filmed. And the Orc has been "there". His head may be CGI, as with most of the Orcs and Goblins in AUJ.

:) [In reply to] Can't Post

Why? Just watch the Sneak Peak (you should be able to find that) and listen around the 1:13 Minute mark. ;)

If it is the orc well his voice really sounds awkward there compared to him saying: "The dwarf will never be king."

I think it may have been CGI but it was certainly the most impressive CGI work I've seen them do on an orc. I'm hoping everything looks that great. And I'm usually one who hates CGI orcs.
