Blizzard Entertainment and Legendary showed at Blizzcon 2014 a Warcraft Movie Teaser/Trailer.

I couldn’t find much about said panel at Blizzcon, so here is the IGN description of the trailer.

“The main human character is portrayed by Travis Fimmell. He has long brown hair and a beard and is garbed in black shining armor trimmed with gold. We hear him speak about guarding his king and guarding his own family. He ponders whether he is strong or worthy enough. Likewise, his orc counterpart speaks of being a father and if he is up to the task. The point is that these two foes are more alike than they are different.
