Zug zug! Wake up the peasants and get those peons to work because here is the newest trailer for Legendary Warcraft film. This spot was first shown on TV and only runs about 30 seconds…which is probably about as long as a Subtlety Rogue lasts out in the open. Within the context of the Warcraft trailer, we see humans delivering stirring speaches and rallying the troops while the Orcs tend to look like Viking vagabonds. Not quite as intimidating as they were in the original Warcraft game but then again, who wants to have a dark wizard open a portal to let an invading alien army in. That’s been done to death these day! The refugee thing might work…and hopefully break the curse of the bad video game movie. It will either be this or the Assassin’s Creed one I feel!
