Following the release of that cool first poster for Duncan Jones’ Warcraft: The Beginning (which you can see by clicking here), the first trailer teaser featuring footage from the highly anticipated movie has now been released. It’s very heavy on the CGI, with the battles similar to those seen in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy. Is that a good thing? Time will tell!

In this big screen adaptation of the hit video game, 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. Directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) and written by Charles Leavitt and Jones, the film’s cast includes Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Ben Schnetzer, Rob Kazinsky and Daniel Wu.

Stay tuned to HeyUGuys later this week for the first Warcraft: The Beginning trailer, and don’t forget to see which other video games we want to see on the big screen right here.
