In development for ages and seemingly in production for almost as long, we finally get to see Warcraft: The Beginning this year. Another new trailer has arrived to give you an extra taste of the movie.

Moon and Source Code director Duncan Jones is behind the film, which promises to show both sides of the story set in the seemingly peaceful realm of Azeroth, poised to descend into bitter war between man and orc when a portal opens between their two worlds. We’ll meet the likes of battle-hardened warrior Anduin Lothar (Travis Fimmel), the commander of the human forces and champion of his king, Llane Wrynn (Dominic Cooper). But as opposed to the usual faceless hordes of monsters attacking them, we’ll also check in with the Orcs, who arrive because they’re fleeing the destruction of their own home world, and are led by Durotan (Toby Kebbell).

With ILM going all out to create the Orcs based on the performance capture work of Kebbell and co., Warcraft promises big fantasy visions, bigger clashes and, hopefully, some characters we can root for on either side. Paula Patton, Clancy Brown, Rob Kazinsky, Daniel Wu and Ben Foster are also part of the cast, and Warcraft: The Beginning arrives in the UK on May 30 before making its way Stateside on June 10.
