The pictures reveal the characters of Anduin Lothar (Travis Fimmel), Durotan (Toby Kebbell), and Orgrim Doomhammer (Robert Kazinsky). The film is directed by Duncan Jones, and also stars Dominic Cooper, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, and Clancy Brown.

Production on Warcraft wrapped in May 2014, and its release date has now moved twice. Originally scheduled for December 18, 2015, it was initially shifted to March 2016 to avoid a clash with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In April this year it was moved again, to its current slot of next June.

In September, some concern about the big-budget fantasy blockbuster was raised by an article in The Hollywood Reporter that suggested that executives considered it a "problem movie." This was subsequently denied by Jones on Twitter, who stated: "Universal moved us to the same date as Jurassic World, so we must have done something right!"

Warcraft hits cinemas on June 10, 2016.
