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.

Comparison

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:

Warcraft Movie Interview: Arclight Cinemas interviews Robert Kazinsky

Usually, I hunt online searching for the latest Warcraft Movie interviews. This time around, Arclight Cinemas reached out to inform us about their interview. How awesome is that?

Arclight interviewed Robert Kazinsky, and he bleeds pure love for his role as Orgrim Doomhammer and you can see his passion as a World of Warcraft gamer come forth in this interview. Robert praised the film direction, and wishes to work with Duncan Jones forever, if he allows so.

The link in their Youtube page led me to the Arclight Cinemas website, where I found photos taken during the interview.

Warcraft Movie – Khadgar Spotlight Video

Legendary Pictures recently posted the Warcraft Movie Khadgar spotlight video where we see Khadgar spellcasting arcane and fire spells in all its glory. The video clip also shows these characters: King Llane, Garona, Lothar, Gul’dan and Durotan.

Each spotlight video has a description of each of the heroes. In this case, Khadgar is dubbed “The Seeker.” A mage is known to seek knowledge to hone and grow his magical skills. There is a scene where Khadgar is in the Karazhan library. The tower seen in one of the screenshots below is most definitely The Tower of Karazhan.

 

Warcraft Movie – Garona Spotlight Video

Legendary Pictures posted yesterday a new spotlight video, and my hunch was right. It seems Legendary plans to release a spotlight video for each character leading up to the official launch date in theaters this June 10.

Today’s spotlight features Garona Halforcen, played by Paula Patton. This spotlight shows off how kickass Garona really is. Paula excelled in her combat skills like a pro, and this is just a short clip. Makes you crave to see more of her action in the film.

One doesn’t find champion women often in movies. The big screen often portrays damsels in distress, but the Warcraft movie is going to show a brave, agile, fearless, and powerful woman.
