Warcraft Movie Officially Best Video Game Adaptation at Box Office

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in World of Warcraft Film

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.

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. Consulted Blizzplanet for Warcraft Movie Article

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in World of Warcraft Film

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

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in World of Warcraft Film

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.
