First Footage Of Warcraft Video Game Adaptation Leaks Online

The video has been removed at the request of the studio. 

For the second consecutive year, director Duncan Jones brought a sizzle reel for his upcoming Warcraft to San Diego Comic-Con, and for the second consecutive year, said footage remained locked behind closed doors. However, in keeping with this year’s trend of leaked trailers, a bootleg version of the clip has appeared online, showcasing the director’s mystical, expansive take on Azeroth.

As one would expect, it’s shot from an obscure angle, and while it isn’t a fair indication of the final product – visually or aurally – the video above does at least illustrate some of the special effects that we can expect from Legendary’s blockbuster.


For the uninitiated, Warcraft will chart the first encounter between man and orc, with the film’s large, star-studded roster divided between The Alliance and The Horde – a roster that encompasses dwarfs and trolls, too. Expect the first official trailer to debut in November, but for now, you can squint at the low-res version above.

Warcraft will march into theatres on June 10, 2016.
