Exclusive movie footage was shown at the event--attendees had to close their laptops, but here is a summary of the footage from
They showed a LOT of footage, not just a trailer
Basically it starts with a focus on the Horde as it shows a bunch of them walking across the wilderness until they come to an area with a bunch of green orcs
We spend some time with the orcs as they realize they need to find food and water to save their world
it shows a lot of Durotan and his wife who is pregnant and that seems to be a big part of the story
But we see a wizard creating a portal from the souls of prisoners
Anyway, the wizard creates the portal and the orcs rush through it and for that whole section we haven't seen a single human
when they get through the portal, they first see the humans on horseback and we get to see King Llane and some of the other characters who say that the Horde are monsters that need to be destroyed
There was a lot of footage of all the characters but it kept coming back to Durotan and his wife who has the baby in the human world where he's in danger
They didn't show a trailer but full footage, probably; 5-6 minutes and they were using the large side screens so the footage was being extneded to either side
I'll try to answer a few questions at once. This wasn't a trailer but they obviously have enough footage to do one. I think this was more to introduce the story being told, the basic characters and the visuals
The individual characters looked great but there were huge scenes with thousands of orcs and the scene where Medivh opens the portal was pretty impressive
Yeah, the music was great and it definitely seems to be actual score from Ramin Djawadi (Iron Man, Pacific Rim)
they have a lot of footage to work with but they will have to cut something shorter like 2 minutes and that might be hard because they need to figure out the focus rather than just showing them fighting
Nerdist has been recapping the panel
Duncan Jones comes out and talks about the three years of Warcraft at Comic-Con. Compares the movie as what the LOTR movies are for people who’ve ever read Tolkien.
Cast members Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Toby Kebbell, Dominic Cooper, Rob Kazinksky, Ben Schmoetzer, Clancy Brown, Ruth Negga, Daniel Woo accompanied by clips of their characters from the film and pictures on the sides of the stage in the extended screens.
Fimmmel talks about how lucky they were to have Jones as a director and how amazing it all looks now, not being broomsticks with foam.
Patton says it’s one of the greatest challenges she’s had as an actress, being half human half orc and she finds herself in Azaroth and doesn’t really fit in in either world. There was no research to be done for that!
Foster said working with Duncan Jones and getting to play a wizard was a no-brainer for him. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime.
Kebbell plays Duritan and can’t say too much else about it.
Cooper says the humans had it worse than the Orcs because the Orc actors just play in pajamas.
Kazinsky, a ranked World of Warcraft player plays Orgrim and says he lost a girlfriend because of it. Now who’s the winner, lady?!?
Clancy Brown answers what it was like in Orc and it’s amazing. He looks out over the crowd of 7,000 and sees nothing but fuel for the fell.
Negga says her character is the great woman behind the great man.
Wu plays Guldan and really took the role to get in her wife’s good graces since she was such a huge WOW fan.
Theeeeeen we gets some exclusive footage!
It mostly followed the Horde, which all look truly amazing and a beautiful mo-capped representation of those characters from the game, and then we get into the real trailer, which looked especially great on the massive panorama triple-screen. This is going to be a truly epic, truly colorful, truly amazing movie I think. All the hype and years of excitement will more than likely pay off. Wow.

"From Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures comes 'Warcraft,' an epic adventure of world-colliding conflict based on Blizzard Entertainment’s global phenomenon.
The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: Orc warriors fleeing their dying home to colonize another. As a portal opens to connect the two worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces extinction. From opposing sides, two heroes are set on a collision course that will decide the fate of their family, their people and their home.
So begins a spectacular saga of power and sacrifice in which war has many faces, and everyone fights for something.
