The Warcraft movie hasn’t Thralled critics but it’s doing the business globally – and director Duncan Jones is up for a sequel if it comes to it.
Globally the Warcraft movie has made $377.6m, reported , and more than $200m of that in China. That makes Warcraft the most commercially successful video-game film ever, beating previous champion Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time ($336m), which starred Jake Gyllenhaal’s muscular torso.
The Angry Birds film, meanwhile – which I’ve watched and it isn’t great – has made $327m.
Duncan Jones was congratulated about the numbers and quizzed on Twitter about a possible Warcraft sequel. “If it becomes an option, I’d love to,” . “Don’t think we are quite there yet, but on the way, and doing good,” . “I’m desperate to do Taurens. We’ll just have to wait and see if we get the chance,” .
