Universal Pictures gave audiences a sneak peek into their Summer 2016 slate with the release of the first trailer for Warcraft at Blizzcon.
The annual convention, held by video game developer-publisher Blizzard Entertainment to promote their game franchises, i.e. Warcraft, StarCraft II and Heroes Of The Storm, among other titles, featured a panel which includes the film’s director Duncan Jones (son of David Bowie) and cast members Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Paula Patton, Daniel Wu and Clancy Brown.
Warcraft is based on Blizzard’s 21-year-old multiplayer fantasy video game series in which human and Orc armies warcraft-battle each other. The popular franchise game has spawned a collectible card game, comic books and novels and at its peak in 2011 counted close to 12.5M online subscribers worldwide — a number which has fallen to 5.5M.
Hopefully, the bigger of those two figures will turn out for Warcraft when it opens nationwide on June 10, 2016. Check out the trailer below:
