Legendary Pictures has unleashed an extended TV spot and a new poster for Source Code director Duncan Jones’ upcoming epic fantasy movie, Warcraft.
The one-minute promo actually plays more like a sweeping movie trailer than a TV spot and features a bunch of awesome new footage; including a fantastic opening sequence.
The movie stars Travis Fimmel (Vikings) as Sir Anduin Lothar, Toby Kebbell (Fantastic Four, Ben-Hur) as Orc chieftain Durotan, and Robert Kazinsky (True Blood, Second Chance) as the legendary Orgrim Doomhammer. Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol), Ben Foster (X-Men: The Last Stand), Dominic Cooper (Agent Carter, Preacher), Clancy Brown (Sleepy Hollow), Ruth Negga (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Preacher), Daniel Wu (Into the Badlands) and Ben Schnetzer (The Book Thief) round up the cast.
As most of you know by now (even though you are not a gamer), Warcraft is based on Blizzard Entertainment’s cult hit MMORPG video game World of Warcraft. From what I gleaned from the trailer and TV spots released so far, this may turn out to be the must-see fantasy movie of the year. It’s already giving me all the epic feels!!
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.
Warcraft is co-written by Charles Leavitt and Duncan Jones and will open in movie theaters on June 10.
