Warcraft has obtained more at the box office than any other video game film…thanks to CHINA!
Duncan Jones owes it to the overseas audience. Warcraft has taken over $200 million to its combined $377.6 million worldwide takings. Prince of Persia previously held the record at $335 million back in 2010.
In the US, Warcraft was looked at as average. It dropped nearly 73% in weekend ticket sales here, making it the third-largest first weekend to second weekend drop-off in US cinema history, after 2009’s Friday the 13th remake and Fifty Shades of Grey. The hype train can only ride so strong for so long.
Personally I thought the film was average at best, but boy did it look good (Final Fantasy Spirits Within anyone?) This is good for Legendary’s franchise though. It can only grow from here and include more races and tons of more Warcraft lore. Just hopefully they don’t screw with it too much like they did in this film.
