In case you forgot, there’s a Warcraft movie coming out this summer, and a new TV spot to prove it.

Director Duncan Jones dedicated a long time to Warcraft, the upcoming film based on the wildly popular MMORPG.

I spent my freshman year of college doing three things: I went to class, I watched a lot of Mystery Science Theater 3000, and I played a ton of Warcraft II on my dorm’s then incredibly high-tech high-speed Internet. (Dude, no dial-up modem! Amazing!) That was 1998, and video games and movies have come a long way since then. Warcraft II eventually morphed into World of Warcraft the hugely successful MMORPG. And now Warcraft is coming to movie screens, in what looks to be a hugely scaled movie from Moon and Source Code director Duncan Jones.

Paul Rudd and Alexander Skarsgard have signed on to star in the smaller sci-fi film, reminiscent of Jones’ debut feature, Moon.

It’s been a long road for Duncan Jones’ Warcraft movie — Jones signed on for the ambitious project almost three years ago, and today brings the first actual footage from the epic blockbuster in anticipation of Friday’s full trailer. Although brief, the teaser is a bit more revealing than most of its annoying “teaser for a teaser trailer” brethren, and given how long we’ve waited to see something from Warcraft, it’s better than nothing at all.

After years of development and a lot of extensive post-production, Duncan Jones’ Warcraft movie is officially less than a year away. Lucky Comic-Con attendees will probably get to see a trailer this weekend, but those of us at home get a consolation prize: two new posters depicting the human warrior Anduin Lothar and the Orc chieftain Durotan.

Duncan Jones May Direct ‘Mute’ Before ‘Warcraft’ Hits Theaters

The long-awaited Warcraft movie is a little under a year away…and director Duncan Jones thinks that’s just enough time to squeeze in another movie. The man behind Moon and Source Code has spent the better part of five years developing, filming, and editing his adaptation of the beloved video game series, but his fast-and-cheap indie sensibilities still rage within. Can he film his long-gestating passion project while finishing his massive fantasy epic?

This week sees the release of ‘Jupiter Ascending,’ the latest sci-fi adventure from Andy and Lana Wachowski. And while in all likelihood ‘Jupiter Ascending’ will not go down in history as one of the great works of its genre, the occasion of a new sci-fi epic from two of the modern masters of the form seemed like a good time to assess and celebrate the recent highlights of science fiction cinema, which has taken audiences from the furthest reaches of the cosmos to the deepest recesses of the human mind.
