The Latest Warcraft Trailer Is All About the Orcish Action

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

We actually haven’t seen that much of the “war” in the upcoming Warcraft movie yet, but this new trailer seems to be trying to make up for that by showing you a cornucopia of people and orcs getting hacked, shanked, and hammered.

Conversely, the new trailer doesn’t really add that much in telling us about the story—orcs are invading, orcs bad, fight orcs, no wait some orcs are good!—but it gives us a better look at some of the more fantastical elements of the world of Azeroth, like magic and Dwarves, and a bit more of Paula Patton’s half-orc Garona kicking butt and taking names.

I’m still holding out hope that Warcraft is a fun recreation of a classic gaming series—but man, these trailers are really not helping. That soundtrack is just abysmal.
