New Footage From Duncan Jones’ Warcraft Leaks Online

Moon and Source Code director Duncan Jones has been working on a live-action Warcraft film for some time now, and even brought some teaser footage to SDCC last year. Legendary Pictures has already set up some Warcraft armor displays around the convention, and Jones will be part of the studios' panel on Saturday from 2:30 to 3:30. Now that he's had time to perfect the film's extensive special effects, we're hoping he shows up with the first bit of official footage.

UPDATE: This footage has been removed at the request of the studio.

Part of the first trailer for the Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) directed Warcraft movie has leaked online, and you can check it out above. As you’d expect, the footage is full of orcs and humans engaged in battle, and even in this low-quality version, some of the shots look pretty damn impressive.

The SDCC footage that leaked a while back was criticized for being (or rather, looking) far too CGI-heavy, but seeing some of the human characters integrated into the fantasy surroundings here does make things seem a little more… well, real. While this is only a small tease of what’s to come, it’s certainly a tantalizing one.


Fighting for The Alliance, Warcraft features Dominic Cooper as King Llane Wrynn, Travis Fimmel as Anduin Lothar, Ben Foster as Medivh, Ben Schnetzer as Khadgar, and Ruth Negga as Lady Taria. And on the side of The Horde is Clancy Brown as Blackhand, Toby Kebbel as Durotan, and Daniel Wu as Gul’Dan, with Paula Patton’s Garona apparently caught in the middle.

Warcraft is set to be released on June 10th, 2016. In the meantime, feel free to get acquainted with some of the cast and characters using the gallery below.
