Obviously fans of the Warcraft franchise are eagerly awaiting the movie. They have been waiting long enough after all. Seems like the general consensus is that it is pretty terrible, but fans of the franchise will likely love it.
They certainly love it in China, despite bad reviews. Forbes has the numbers and guess what? The Warcraft movie managed to pull in $47 million in its first day alone in China. Yes, that is insane. Consider this. This number means that the movie beat Star Wars: The Force Awakens which is probably one of the most highly-anticipated movies ever.
Star Wars made $30-33 million on its first day in China. It should be noted that Warcraft is really big in China. The Warcraft movie is estimated to pull in $25 million in America on its opening day which is set for the 10th of June.
Despite the negative reviews, the movie is doing well in other countries too. There are many gamers who just want to check it out. It could end up being a financial success, even though it has so many negative reviews. In that case they will certainly make another at some point. This will be interesting to watch for sure.
