Showcased at Blizzcon today, here’s the trailer for the upcoming Warcraft movie, which will debut in June. There are orc babies. Also some war.


Directed by Duncan Jones (Moon), this Warcraft movie will be set early in the franchise’s history, and will star iconic old characters like Lothar, Durotan, and Medivh. It’ll be out on June 10, 2016. Trailer’s right here:


Same thing I posted on io9:

Just watched it on the BlizzCon live stream, and while the effects look fantastic (really fantastic), the whole WoW aesthetic doesn’t feel like it translates particularly well to live action.

Everything looks spot on perfect, but at the same time that is what makes it look... wrong? I guess that is the way to put it. Story looks great, effects do look astounding, it just feels off-putting. Almost like the 48FPS Hobbit.

Paula Patton, who I thought was a great choice for Garona looks out of place as well.

But I’m still cautiously optimistic.
