A tale of two worlds set for collision is the themes weaved throughout the beautifully crafted trailer for Blizzard Entertainment’s Warcraft. They teased the coming trailer earlier this week, but now we get to see this bad boy in full.
We’ve often been wary of video game films, but it seems with the events of recent years with online concept videos, Hollywood is set to make the plunge into video game movies the right way. So already this is new ground, and the trailer gives an epic sense of narrative scope.
See the Warcraft trailer in the player 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.
