“A jaw-dropping masterpiece!” – Ricky Hayberg, Machinima

 

Universal City, California, July 28, 2016 – In a distant world, humankind faces extinction at the hands of a brutal enemy in the visually stunning epic, WARCRAFT, coming to Digital HD on September 13, 2016, and Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, 4K Ultra HD, DVD and On Demand on September 27, 2016, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Based on the global video game phenomenon from Blizzard Entertainment, WARCRAFT is a seamless blend of live action and awe-inspiring visual effects.  All Blu-ray editions include over 90 minutes of bonus content, including deleted scenes, an exclusive stop-motion Warcraft comic, and several behind-the-scenes looks at stunts, visual effects, story origins, and more.

 

The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: Orc warriors fleeing their dying home to colonize another. As a portal opens to connect the two worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces extinction. From opposing sides, an unlikely group of heroes is set on a collision course that will decide the fate of their families, their people and their home.

 

Directed by Duncan Jones (MoonSource Code) and written by Charles Leavitt (In the Heart of the Sea, Blood Diamond) and Jones, WARCRAFT stars Travis Fimmel (“Vikings,” Maggie’s Plan), Paula Patton (Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Deja Vu), Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger, Need for Speed) and Ben Foster (Lone Survivor, 3:10 to Yuma).
