The moment you have been waiting for has finally arrived. Unless you were one of the lucky few who got into the Warcraft panel at Comic-Con 2015, this is your first opportunity to see real, meaningful footage from Duncan Jones’s ambitious adaptation of the worldwide sensation World of Warcraft, which has become one of humanity’s leading cultural obsessions since its original release in 2004.
The film promises to be a fantasy epic on the same level as The Lord of the Rings – no, really, that’s what they said at this set visit – but can Warcraft please the millions of World of Warcraft fans all over the planet? And will those of us who still haven’t found the timer to start grinding get equally involved in the world of The Horde and The Alliance as those who have been practically living amongst those clans for over a decade?
Check out the trailer and decide for yourself. Warcraft hits theaters – very hard – on June 10, 2016!
