Of orcs and men: New Warcraft trailer puts humans and orcs on a collision course

Warcraft - In Theaters June 10 (TV Spot 2) (HD)
We’re mere months away from the premiere of Warcraft, Universal Pictures’ big-screen adaptation of the hit game franchise, and the studio has released yet another trailer offering a preview of what’s to come in the epic clash between humans and orcs.

The new trailer features a human knight facing off against an orc warrior across a battlefield littered with bones, along with a montage of scenes — some previously revealed, some new —  from the upcoming film. And with the movie’s June premiere fast approaching, the war is indeed nigh.

Directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) and co-written by Jones and Charles Leavitt (Blood DiamondIn the Heart of the Sea), the long-awaited film features a long list of popular characters from the game franchise. Vikings actor Travis Fimmel portrays Sir Anduin Lothar, while Dawn of the Planet of the Apes actor Toby Kebbel plays the Chieftan of the Frostwolf clan of orcs, Durotan.

The official synopsis for the film reads as follows:

Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization, led by the humans, faces a fearsome race of invaders: orc warriors fleeing their dying world of Draenor to find their place in another. As a gateway known as the Dark Portal opens to connect the two worlds, the humans face destruction while the orcs face extinction. Anduin Lothar (Travis Fimmel), leader of the humans, and Durotan (Toby Kebbell), leader of the orcs, are then sent on a collision course that will decide the fate of their families, their people, and their home.

Along with Fimmel as Lothar, the human side of the cast includes Dominic Cooper as King Llane Wrynn, Ben Foster as Medivh, Ben Schnetzer as Khadgar, and Ruth Negga as Lady Taria. The cast of orc characters includes Kebbel’s Duratan, as well as Clancy Brown as Blackhand, Robert Kazinsky as Ogrim, and Daniel Wu as Gul’Dan. Paula Patton plays the half-orc Garona, a character caught in the middle of the conflict.

Warcraft hits theaters June 10, 2016.

New Bros trailer highlights the LGBT romance and comedy
Bobby and Aaron looking confused and squinting their eyes in the 2022 film Bros.

Have you ever noticed that there's not an abundance of LGBT romantic comedies? Oh, to be sure, there have almost always been gay best friends, as well as gay and lesbian relationships among the side characters. But for films with LGBT leading characters, only the independent movie studios went for those stories ... until now. Billy Eichner took it upon himself to change that trend, and it's happening with Bros, a new LGBT romantic comedy that he co-wrote with director Nicholas Stoller, with the full backing of producer Judd Apatow and Universal Pictures.

Generations unite in new Jurassic World Dominion featurette
DeWanda Wise and Chris Pratt in Jurassic World Dominion.

In a summer box office destined to be dominated by superheroes and Tom Cruise, there's at least one more franchise that could challenge for the crown. Jurassic World Dominion is not only a sequel to the hit Jurassic World films, but it's also the first time in three decades that the main characters of Jurassic Park will be back in action. And if the sequel's latest featurette is any indication, it's shaping up to be a crossover of Endgame proportions.

The new video feature follows up on the recently released trailer that introduced Baby Blue, the daughter of Owen Grady's raptor, Blue. It also reveals that Owen, Claire Dearing, and their adoptive daughter, Maisie Lockwood, have been living off the grid since Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. It's appropriate since the state of the world is kind of their fault. Maisie made the call to set the dinosaurs free on an unsuspecting planet, and they're making up for lost time.

New Jurassic World Dominion trailer introduces Baby Blue
Baby Blue in Jurassic World Dominion.

The newest trailer for Jurassic World Dominion is asking the important questions, like "Can a dinosaur truly be adorable?" or "Shouldn't the child of Blue be called Green?" Regardless, the bigger questions after this trailer are "Who stole Baby Blue? And what do they want with her?" Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) had better find out fast, because with Baby Blue gone in the wind, Momma Blue is no longer his best friend. The bond between Owen and the raptor named Blue was a key part of the last two films. But now, Blue is having some trust issues.
