It feels like we've been waiting years for Duncan Jones' cinematic take on Warcraft, known here as Warcraft: The Beginning, to arrive. But it's so very close now and to remind us of that fact, the new one-sheet and quad posters have landed with a mighty, Orc-powered thump.

Based on the incredibly popular and sprawling game, Warcraft follows what happens when the peaceful realm of Azeroth is thrown into chaos by the arrival of what appear to be fearsome invaders: Orc warriors. Fleeing their dying home, the new arrivals are looking for somewhere to colonize and the human realm would seem to be ideal. But that sets the stage for an epic clash between the two races, even as heroes on opposing sides come to realise that there might just be more to fight for than just conquest and defence.

We're promised a lot of combat, then, a dash of magic and plenty of character drama, with Jones promising that the effects wizards have cooked up some impressive creatures.
