Earlier this summer, fans who attended San Diego Comic Con were the first to see the new trailer for Warcraft, with director Duncan Jones revealing shortly thereafter that everyone else will get to see the trailer in November. Now that November is finally here, the official Warcraft Twitter page revealed a new poster, while confirming that the worldwide debut of the trailer will happen on Friday, November 6. The new poster showcases The Horde's Durotan (Toby Kebbell) and The Alliance's Anduin Lothar (Travis Fimmel).
From Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures comes Warcraft, an epic adventure of world-colliding conflict based on Blizzard Entertainment's global phenomenon. 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.
The film stars Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Ben Schnetzer, Robert Kazinsky, Callum Keith Rennie and Daniel Wu. Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) directs from a script he co-wrote with Charles Leavitt, based on the beloved Blizzard Entertainment video game series. The trailer's debut on Friday, November 6 will likely coincide with the annual BlizzCon convention, which takes place on November 6 and November 7 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.
Since the trailer will be released this Friday, it's possible that it will be attached to theatrical prints of Sony Pictures' new James Bond action-adventure Spectre, but we don't know for sure. Legendary Pictures doesn't have any movies hitting theaters this month, but the action-packed Spectre will be a good fit for the trailer's theatrical debut. Fans at Hall H reacted positively to this trailer at Comic Con, so we'll have to wait and see how everyone else reacts to the first footage.
Warcraft will hit theaters on June 10, 2016, where it will go up against a pair of sequels, Lionsgate's Now You See Me 2: The Second Act and Warner Bros.' The Conjuring: The Enfield Poltergeist. Given the popularity of all three of these franchises, it may be a close weekend at the box office, but we'll find out for sure next summer. Check out the new one-sheet for Warcraft below, and be sure to check back on Friday for the first trailer.
