The first poster has been released by Legendary for their upcoming Warcraft adaptation, which is directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code). With the poster comes the announcement that the trailer will arrive on Friday, so fans can finally get a glimpse of what Jones had conjured up.
This is a huge movie, with a lot of expectancy and a massive budget, so the trailer should deliver some great stuff. We have already seen a couple of images from the film, which showcase some jaw-dropping special effects, but to see it in action is going to be very exciting indeed.
Jones has stated that, like the game, his film will not have a definitive good vs evil story, and it will be up to the viewer to decide which side they are on.
This poster features the two leaders of both sides: Anduin Lothar (Travis Fimmel), “the lead protagonist for the Alliance, Lothar is a war hero who has sacrificed everything to keep the people of Azeroth safe,” and Durotan (Toby Kebbel) “the lead protagonist for the Horde, Durotan is the noble Chieftain of the Frostwolf Clan, battling to save his people and his family from extinction.”
The cast includes Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Clancy Brown, Robert Kazinsky and Daniel Wu.
Warcraft is expected in cinemas on 3rd June 2016.
