New Warcraft trailer gets a heavy dose of magic

Plus, all new battle scenes

The newest trailer for Duncan Jones' Warcraft focuses pretty heavily on the magical elements, monsters and battle action that longtime players will recognize.

While there's still a focus on the two armies — man and orc — that come together to take on a more powerful enemy that poses a much higher threat than they do to each other, this new trailer is the first one to really incorporate magic. There's streaks of dazzling blue that surround different mages, but that's not to be confused with the bolts of lightning that rain down on the armies throughout the trailer.

This trailer is also a little more action-heavy than the previous ones have been, especially when it comes to battle sequences. There are a couple of shots that provide some insight into how Jones meshed CGI elements with live actors and real locations to craft the world of Warcraft. (Pun definitely not intended.)

Warcraft, which stars Toby Kebbell, Travis Fimmel and Paula Patton, will hit theaters June 10.
