“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.”
Warcraft, from Universal Pictures, Legendary Pictures, and Blizzard Entertainment, will be released to theaters in the US in June, 2016.
Blizzard’s Chris Metzen says the film will most likely be rated PG-13 for fantasy violence.
