We shall see how well the Orcs hold up in daylight scenes or when interacting with real humans, OR when they move! Static photorealistic CG renders aren't exactly uncommon nowadays. I remember how incredibly realistic Azog the Pale Orc looked when they revealed a screenshot of him for the first time, and was wowed by it. Alas, he looked obviously CGI in the actual movies, especially when interacting with real things. Then again, Azog, I heard, was a rush job. Their main VFX focus in the Hobbit movies was Smaug, and him being the most convincing (the only convincing) CG dragon ever to roar on the big screen clearly proved that. Besides, WETA at the time seemed more keen on pushing the limits of VFX with Planet of the Apes series.
