UPDATE 3/11/15 5.00pm Here's a quick glimpse at the trailer, due Friday. Behold, 15 seconds of Warcraft movie footage plus analysis from our Blizzard buff Chris Bratt:

"I'm trying my very best to remain skeptical about the idea of a Warcraft movie, but did you even see that first shot of Stormwind?! I've spent countless hours in that city, loitering outside the auction house, or duelling other players just outside the city gates.

"It's strange to feel such strong feelings towards the CGI version of a place I've only visited via my PC monitor, but I can't quite help it and anyway, it looks so much better than I expected it would. Oh gosh, what if this movie end up being half-decent? What then? Can video game movies be okay now?"
