The teaser earlier this week for ‘Warcraft‘ looked good but now that we’ve got the full on trailer we’re finally able to get an idea of what to expect from the film. Practical effects purists might not love the CGI but with it being based off of a video game and the fact that the effects truly look beautiful, I don’t think there should be many complaints here.
War is coming between Orc and Human and visually I just can’t get enough of this film! We’re talking epic battles that look to possibly put Peter Jackson’s work to shame. Before I go too much further into it you can check out the trailer yourself below!
While I have my doubts on any video game adaptation, it looks as if Duncan Jones has gotten everything right with this trailer. Even those unfamiliar with the groundwork laid by the ‘Warcraft’ franchise throughout the years can easily pickup that the Orcs are invading due to it being their nature and that they are unable to go home. The humans are united against them and a renegade group made up of players from both sides want to bring peace between their people.
Though can peace even be possible when the opposing leaders are so dead set in destroying one another? I can’t wait to see how Jones has this play out on screen and can only hope that it is of the caliber that the trailer promises and will turn into an ongoing series.
What are your thoughts on the ‘Warcraft’ trailer? Are you as excited for the full film to be released as I am? Share your thoughts below!
From Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures comes Warcraft, an epic adventure of world-colliding conflict based on Blizzard Entertainment’s global phenomenon.
The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: Orc warriors 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.
