The Plot:
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.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As someone who has absolutely 0% background in this mystical realm and that of the doings of most MMORPGs (this means “massively multi-player online role-playing game BTW) I’m pretty certain that I will NOT be catching this in the cinemas and will instead wait for it to his HBO or Netflix. Whichever comes first. I know quite a few people that are excited for this and I am happy for that because thanks to the likes of Comic Con and games like this, the geeks have inherited the Earth. Will you be seeing this film when it opens up today or soon after? Please let me know in the comments section but kindly do NOT post any spoilers. There is no reason to be that person here. Thanks.
