Fight for the Alliance! Fight for the Horde!
Check out the first two posters for Universal's forthcoming big screen adaptation of Warcraft.
The Alliance is made up of the mortal races in Azeroth (the literal World of Warcraft), and they are distinguished by a commitment to nobility and honor.
The Horde, meanwhile, is made up of Orcs, Trolls, Goblins, etc.
Universal Pictures has released the first two Warcraft movie posters for director Duncan Jones’ (Moon) upcoming adaptation of the incredibly popular video game World of Warcraft. The two teaser posters were unveiled today at the WoW convention BlizzCon, and they tease the two major factions of the Warcraft world.
These two posters tease the weapons of each faction, and at Comic-Con we learned that the film will be an origin story that delves into how Azeroth fell into conflict between the orcs and humans, ie. the Alliance and the Horde.
