The first footage from Duncan Jones’ Warcraft movie has been unveiled in advance of the full trailer’s reveal this Friday. It’s a brief tease which does exactly what a teaser trailer should do. We get short glimpses of both the heroes of the Alliance and the members of the Horde with plenty of fast-paced cuts revealing a massive army, burning villages, weapons, armor, and mythical creatures. It’s a great first look, but the next test comes this Friday when we’ll see the full trailer.
Starring Travis Fimmel as the Alliance’s Anduin Lothar, and Toby Kebbell as Durotan the hero of the Horde, Warcraft opens June 10, 2016 and also stars Paula Patton, Rob Kazinsky, Ben Foster, Daniel Wu, and Clancy Brown.
Check out the first footage below:

Here’s the official synopsis for Warcraft:
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.
