Earlier this week, eager Warcraft fans got a tease of the movie adaptation with a new poster and a quick snippet of footage. To kick off BlizzCon today, however, Legendary Pictures has unleashed the first official trailer for the highly anticipated film.
Fans have been waiting for this for a long time. Remember, at one point this movie would have released NEXT MONTH, and before that had been stuck in development hell for quite some time. Fans of the Warcraft franchise (of which there are a TON) have been very eagerly awaiting this first trailer. I love it. While I was never a fan of the World of Warcraft MMO, I’m a diehard fan of the RTS games on which it’s based. Even so, I think this trailer offers up more than just fan service and looks like an engaging fantasy film that general audiences can get behind as well
The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: Orc warriors fleeing their dying home to colonize another. As a portal opens to connect the two worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces extinction. From opposing sides, two heroes are set on a collision course that will decide the fate of their family, their people and their home.
So begins a spectacular saga of power and sacrifice in which war has many faces, and everyone fights for something.
What do you guys think of the trailer? Warcraft hits theaters on June 10, 2016.
