Universal and Legendary continues there huge marketing push for their upcoming live-action video game adaptation of Warcraft. While I'm still not completely on board with this film, I am interested in seeing how the final "product" turns out on the big-screen. I'm really rooting for this film to succeed, for mostly the selfish reasons that I have a few classic video games that I love and really need to see brought to life one day. If this adaptation is a massive hit, we will see a flurry of video game adaptations in the next couple of years. Check out the new posters below and sound off in the comments with your thoughts.
BLACKHAND - THE DESTROYER
Driven by cruel ambition and fueled by rage, Blackhand the Destroyer is war incarnate.
LADY TARIA - THE QUEEN
In an age of beasts and battlegrounds, Lady Taria’s grace and diplomacy provide a beacon of hope to the people.
ORGRIM - THE DEFIANT
Wielder of the mighty Doomhammer, Orgrim is fiercely loyal to his Chieftain Durotan.
LLANE – THE KING
Leading from the front-lines, the noble King Llane is a symbol of strength in a time of war.
GARONA – THE SURVIVOR
Garona is the unbroken survivor who will join Lothar and Durotan to save a world they can all call home.
LOTHAR - THE WARRIOR
Forged in the fire of battle, the brave knight Lothar has sacrificed everything to become defender of Azeroth.
DUROTAN – THE REBEL
Chieftain of the Frostwolf Clan, Durotan will do whatever it takes to find a home for his people.
