New Warcraft movie trailer shows orcs and humans getting along (also fighting)

Warcraft: The Beginning has a new 30-second TV spot with some tantalizing new footage. Not all of the scenes will be new if you've already watched Warcraft's first trailer, but it will still give you some new views of the magical city of Dalaran and the fateful meeting between Anduin Lothar, Garona, and Durotan in what appears to be the Blasted Lands. I'm kind of an Azerothian geography geek, ok?

Warcraft's lore has been brewing for more than two decades (including some troublesome time travel in the most recent expansion for World of Warcraft) but it looks like this adaptation is doing a nice job of interpreting some of its biggest early moments. It should still have plenty left for two potential sequels.

Directed by Duncan Jones and starring Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, and Ben Schnetzer, Warcraft: The Beginning opens in UK cinemas June 3, 2016 and in the US on June 10, 2016.
