Fans of Blizzard’s Warcraft series are used to having awesome cinematics of orcs and humans (among others) battling out for supremacy, and now the rest of the world can get in on the act.
The first trailer for Legendary Pictures’ Warcraft film, in partnership with Blizzard, is now out, and it is pretty.
From gryphons to gorgeous skylines to orcs and knights (or footmen) going at it, could this be the next epic fantasy film we’ve all been waiting for after Lord of The Rings?
The film follows the first war between the Horde and the Alliance after the orcs arrived from Draenor, so Warcraft fans will once again reunite with familiar names from earlier games and novels in the series, such as Anduin Lothar (Travis Fimmel), Medivh (Ben Foster), Durotan (Toby Kebbell) and Orgrim Doomhammer (Robert Kazinsky).
Sadly, no sign of elves just yet. I guess we’ll have to wait to see if we get the chance to meet Sylvanas Windrunner in future films… And please tell me we’ll see a random peasant going “Ready to serve!”.
