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.
