Very First Footage From Warcraft Revealed in Teaser

Yesterday we shared with you Legendary Pictures and Universal's Warcraft poster, with a promise to post the trailer for you when it drops on Friday. Now, they've released this 15-second teaser that shows the first footage from the film. Warcraft is directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code), and it's the adaptation of Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft, which holds the Guinness record for most popular massively multiplayer online role-playing game.

Here's the synopsis Legendary provided for the film:

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 starring Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Ben Schnetzer, Rob Kazinsky and Daniel Wu is a Legendary Pictures, Blizzard Entertainment and Atlas Entertainment production.
