Last week during Universal Pictures' CinemaCon presentation, the studio unveiled a new trailer for Warcraft, which is shaping up to be one of this summer's biggest movies when it hits theaters nationwide on June 10. Thankfully, those who weren't in Las Vegas last week don't have to wait long to see this footage, with the Legendary Pictures YouTube page debuting the trailer online. This teaser is chocked full of action-packed scenes that any fan of the beloved video game will surely enjoy.
Warcraft is set in the realm of Azeroth, which has enjoyed peace for hundreds of years. Now this magical land stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders. Orc warriors are 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 Warcraft movie stars Travis Fimmel, Dominic Cooper, Ben Foster, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, Ben Schnetzer, Robert Kazinsky and Daniel Wu. This action epic is directed by Duncan Jones from a script he co-wrote with Charles Leavitt. Warcraft is a Legendary Pictures, Blizzard Entertainment and Atlas Entertainment production.
Warcraft is produced by Charles Roven, Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni, Alex Gartner and Stuart Fenegan. Jillian Share, Brent O'Connor, Michael Morhaime and Paul Sams serve as executive producers. Rob Pardo, Chris Metzen, Nick Carpenter and Rebecca Steel Roven co-produce. Warcraft will go up against a pair of sequels on June 10, Lionsgate's Now You See Me 2 and Warner Bros. The Conjuring 2.
If that wasn't enough, we also have a new banner featuring Travis Fimmel as Anduin Lothar, Toby Kebbell as Durotan, Paula Patton as Garona and Ben Schnetzer as Khadgar. Warcraft could be just the second movie ever to break the $100 million milestone at the domestic box office, following Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, which earned $131.1 million back in 2001. Take a look at the new Warcraft trailer and banner below, and stay tuned for more on this epic video game adventure.
