Warcraft trailer Still 7

The newest trailer for Warcraft is heavy on magical elements, monsters and battle action that longtime players will love.

One of the most eagerly anticipated feature film video game adaptations of 2016 is “Warcraft” from celebrated independent filmmaker Duncan Jones (Source Code).

Based in no small part on the themes and visual style of video game developer Blizzard Entertainment’s ever popular MMORPG Warcraft/World of Warcraft, Jones’ new film is set to bring the fantasy world of Azeroth to stunning life in the depiction of an epic war between humans and orcs.

Throughout the “Warcraft” trailer there is even more derring intrigue, romantic peril, and captivating action as we watch several “unstoppable” heroes from the original Blizzard fantasy game series unite on the big screen.

Most of the characters featured here also appeared in TV spots past for the film, but the new trailer for Warcraft offers plenty in the way of cinematic visual sequences, the kind that provide fair reason to believe in this latest attempt at adapting core gaming mechanics into a satisfying film narrative.
