Leaked video appears to be the Warcraft movie's trailer

Shakycam, watermarks, foreign subtitles. Seems legit.

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Low-quality footage of what appears to be the trailer for the 2016 Warcraft movie has leaked from what appears to be a Romanian source.

The trailer features the usual buffet of CGI characters, pithy dialogue, and one-second fade-out cuts of film action, along with subtitles in Cyrillic. It's video of video, more or less, a mobile device's camera filming a video shown on a computer screen. Watermarks are all over the trailer but they don't obscure its contents.

Warcraft movie footage was shown at Comic-Con in July. It later leaked (and was taken down). It's widely expected that this trailer, or something like it, will premiere at Blizzcon, which is Nov. 6-7. Warcraft is slated for a June 2016 launch.

We're reaching out for comment but chances are Blizzard or Legendary will pass on this. Warcraft is being directed by Duncan Jones and is a production of Legendary Pictures, the studio behind Jurassic World, Pacific Rim, The Dark Knight and several other sci-fi blockbusters.
