Warcraft, the incredibly popular video game franchise from Blizzard Entertainment, is slated to hit movie screens next summer - an agonizing seven months away. Directed by Duncan Jones, the film is said to be an origin story of sorts; explaining how and why the orcs and humans first met, and subsequently clashed. Recognizing that there are a number of Warcraft fans on either side of the conflict (the Horde and Alliance, respectively), Jones has said that he intends to give both sides of the story to allow all Warcraft fans to enjoy the film without feeling vilified.
A new poster for the upcoming film was released by Blizzard Entertainment through their twitter account earlier this week, promising that "enemies will unite and worlds will collide". The tweet also confirmed that the trailer will debut on Friday, November 6.https://twitter.com/warcraftmovie/status/661211853129846784
In addition, Blizzard Entertainment released a 15 second teaser for the upcoming worldwide premiere of the trailer earlier today, giving fans their first peak at the world of Warcraft in live action.
There obviously isn't much plot to be seen in the brief teaser, but fans do get to see the main human city of Stormwind, a number of Orcs raiding a settlement, and what many believe to be Karazhan, the home of an evil mage (and one of the game's infamous dungeons).
The full trailer will be released Friday, to coincide with BlizzCon, and the movie is set to hit theatres June 10, 2016.
Personally, as someone who played a lot more Warcraft than I should have while in school, I am exceptionally excited for the upcoming film. This brief teaser has only made me more impatient!
