The veil is set to come off the highly-anticipated Warcraft movie later this week, as director Duncan Jones is preparing to show the first trailer for the film at BlizzCon.
Warner Bros has also released a new poster for the film, and with it comes the reveal that the film will be going by a different title in the UK – being called: Warcraft: The Beginning. I smell sequel plans here.
The cast of the film includes Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Ben Schnetzer, Rob Kazinsky and Daniel Wu, and a synopsis for the movie has also been revealed. It reads thus:
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.
We’re hoping that the trailer lives up to its hype and doesn’t give away too much in the film. We’ve even recently praised a number of teasers that didn’t ruin the movies, because we appreciate a little unknown excitement going into cinemas these days.
Here is the teaser…

Warcraft is set for release in June 2016.
