Yes, dreams do come true. Fans loyal to the series are well aware the Warcraft movie's taking it back to the earliest of days, before the Dark Portal even opened, and when the PC game storyline began. In this TV Spot we catch some glances of what look like Frost Wolves from the Frostwolf Clan kind of just sinking their teeth into everything they encounter. Plus the square-off between the human warrior and the mountainous, roid-enraged Hulk of an Orc gets all the adrenaline pumpin'. The Warcraft movie hits theaters June 10th.

For a moment at the end there, you almost think that was how it was supposed to end, but there's just no way based off Duncan Jones' innocently flabbergasted expression that that was how it was supposed to go down.

This trailer finally gives us a long, clear look at what to expect from Duncan Jones' Warcraft, scheduled for release on June 10, 2016.

It's been years since many of us have picked up a Warcraft game, and I don't know about you, but I could definitely head back to Azeroth for this.

In case you've lived underneath a rock for most your life, Leeroy Jenkins is the name of a WoW character who famously screamed out his name before charging into battle in a blazing display of unabashed recklessness, only to end up getting his entire team killed in epically ignorant fashion. 

Blizzard stepped up and recognized Leeroy's fabled shamelessness several times by rewarding him an official trading card, mini figurine, and even named an achievement after him. See below.







Who might be the man behind this storied moment in WoW gaming history? Meet Ben Schulz, a Denver-based gamer who initially filmed the video with some buddies from college, never thinking it'd go anywhere. Oh, if only you'd known Schulz, if only. After the video had been online for a couple years, Schulz was formally invited to give the keynote speech at ROFLCon (been invited to speak at for three years now). Check out Schulz speaking at Blizzcon below:



Jenkins continues to find his way into various pop culture moments, even truck advertisements. Check out four such instances below. You've probably, definitely seen at least one of 'em before.









And of course, perhaps the pinnacle of Leeroy's widespread fame thus far--The Daily Show mention...Oh Leeroy, we love ya man.
