After the reveal, the trailer immediately made available globally via YouTube and the film's website.
The movie -- a joint project between film production company Legendary and game company Blizzard -- tells the story of he original meeting of humans and orcs in the Warcraft universe. Starring Travis Fimmel (Vikings) as Auduin Lothar, and Toby Kebbell (Fantastic Four, Prince of Persia), and directed by Duncan Jones (Moon), the film features an impressive cast as well as highly detailed CGI and motion capture.

Warcraft begins when the orc race comes to Azeroth after fleeing their dying world only to be met by the humans. The two races find themselves in a battle for control of the planet.
Fans can expect a more intimate look at the lives of the main characters, including an emphasis on their families and the impact the ensuing war has on them personally.
Originally announced in 2006; it has taken a decade for the project to finally make it to the big screen. Warcraft premieres in theaters everywhere on June 10, 2016.
