WARCRAFT Movie Interview: Robert Kazinsky on Possible Sequels

PCGamesN had a great interview with WARCRAFT Movie actor Robert Kazinsky (Orgrim Doomhammer) to talk about his role in the movie. Robert goes on to say there will be a second and third film till they get to The Frozen Throne story, but backpedals with “If we get to make them.” Figure of speech, or does Robert knows something? That’s wide open for debate.

Warcraft Movie Officially Best Video Game Adaptation at Box Office

It is official. WARCRAFT (2016) by director Duncan Jones has become the best video game film adaptation at the Box Office with $378.4 million worldwide as of June 19, 2016.

WARCRAFT dethroned Prince of Persia which as of 2010 was the top video game film adaptation. On Third place is The Angry Birds Movie early 2016, followed by Tomb Raider (2001, Angelina Jolie).

WARCRAFT is still on theaters. I urge World of Warcraft fans to bring a friend or family to watch the movie. If it does well domestically in the United States, Duncan Jones said via Twitter that until that happens there won’t be an Extended Cut Blu-Ray. For those who may be interested, the WARCRAFT Director’s Cut Blu-Ray will have an additional 40 minutes of footage that was removed for the theatrical view. So please, spread the word and go watch WARCRAFT at a theater near you.

Warcraft Movie Box Office Gross – Week 1

The Warcraft Movie by director Duncan Jones was attacked early on by critics with a 29% based on 161 critics reviews, and that may have affected the decision of non-gamer general public. However, viewers have enjoyed watching the movie with an audience score of 82% who liked it and an Average Rating of 4.1/5. The score was made with a User Ratings: 44,410.

The Warcraft movie launched domestically in the United States on June 10, 2016. As of June 17, the Warcraft movie has made $31,191,525 in the United States across 3,400 theaters; and $280,500,000 overseas. Adding both numbers up gives us a total of $313,621,525 worldwide.

It is laughable how some respected “journalists” who acknowledge not to have played the Warcraft video games haven’t taken a look at past Fantasy-live action films for number-comparison before writing a review to call WARCRAFT a Box Office Flop or Bomb.

Inverse.com Consulted Blizzplanet for Warcraft Movie Article

In the wake of such bad Warcraft Movie reviews from critics, who likely never played the game, Inverse writer Sean Hutchinson reached out to me to research opinions from World of Warcraft gamers to share those thoughts with the general public who doesn’t know anything about Warcraft.

You may read Inverse’s article which quoted some of my thoughts on the Warcraft film a day before I watched it at the Cinema.

Not everything was used for the article, so I wish to share with our audience the full document with my responses:
