War is coming! Finally! On November 6, we'll get our first look at one of next summer's biggest releases when the Warcraft trailer officially drops. From Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures, this epic adventure of world-colliding conflict is based on Blizzard Entertainment's global phenomenon. Today, we get a sneak peek at the upcoming trailer with an amazing 15 second teaser that is sure to entice fans of the game and fantasy movie fanatics alike.
The peaceful realm of Azeroth 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. Warcraft is directed by Duncan Jones and written by Charles Leavitt and Jones. The film stars Travis Fimmel, Dominic Cooper, Ben Foster, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, Ben Schnetzer, Robert Kazinsky and Daniel Wu. Warcraft is a Legendary Pictures, Blizzard Entertainment and Atlas Entertainment production.

Rob Pardo, Chris Metzen, Nick Carpenter and Rebecca Steel Roven co-produce. Warcraft will be released by Universal Pictures in June 2016.
