Hollywood film ‘Warcraft’ based on the video game of the same name has released its first trailer and it sure looks epic. From the graphics used to the intensity of the story building, the makers have done one heck of a job recreating the magic originally formed by the game. ‘Warcraft’ video games have gained immense popularity over the years and ever since it was announced that it is being adapted into a movie, anticipation had risen. And now the first official trailer has lived up to its hype.
The two minutes approx trailer begins by giving us a glimpse of two different worlds with different creatures living in them. One is a peaceful kingdom with more human like living beings who look a lot like characters from ‘Lord of the Rings’. The other side of the story shows a world about to be destroyed, where huge beasts reside. In order to survive and save their clan from extinction, they decide to migrate to the other kingdom where peace prevails.
‘Warcraft’ will thus show the fight between two worlds to claim the kingdom. Some protagonists of the film believe that a war is not necessary as both the worlds can live together peacefully. But the adamant leaders of both the worlds decide to take matters into their own hand and unleash their wrath upon each other causing havoc and destruction. The graphics shown coupled with the background score gives you chills as the hype builds.
‘Warcraft’ has been directed by Duncan Jones and is written by Chris Metnez. Based on the videogame made by Blizzard Entertainment, the film stars Travis Fimmel as Sir Anduin Lothar, Ben Foster as Magus Medivh, Dominic Cooper as King Llane Wrynn, Ben Schnetzer as Khadgar, and Ruth Negga as Lady Taria Wrynn among others. The film is all set to release in June 2016, and if this film lives up to the hype, we can expect more sequels in the future.
