A grainy trailer for next year's World of Warcraft movie has leaked online.
The footage may be grainy and its source less than trustworthy (a Romanian handheld video posted to reddit), but it appears that partial footage of the World of Warcraft movie trailer has leaked, and just in time to coincide with the release of the 6.2.2 patch, no less. Check it out here before it's taken down!
The Warcraft trailer original premiered at Comic Con in July and was leaked online shortly thereafter (and taken down just as quickly). As you can tell from the footage, the movie will be a CGI-heavy affair and looks pretty incredible despite the poor quality of the video. Let's hope director Duncan Jones and Legendary Pictures can be the team that finally does a video game movie justice.
The official synopsis for Warcraft, which is set to be released on June 10th, (not March 10th, as the current posters suggest), 2016, is below:
Legendary's WARCRAFT is a 3D epic adventure of world-colliding conflict based upon Blizzard Entertainment's globally-renowned universe. Directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) and written by Charles Leavitt and Duncan Jones, the film is a Legendary Pictures, Blizzard Entertainment and Atlas Entertainment production. The producers are 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 be released by Universal Pictures
Fighting for The Alliance, Warcraft features Dominic Cooper as King Llane Wrynn, Travis Fimmel as Anduin Lothar, Ben Foster as Medivh, Ben Schnetzer as Khadgar, and Ruth Negga as Lady Taria, and on the side of The Horde is also Clancy Brown as Blackhand, Toby Kebbel as Durotan, and Daniel Wu as Gul'Dan, with Paula Patton's Garona caught in the middle.
