While disappointing US sales, its good to see it do well abroad. It got a lot of poor reviews, and from a non-fan perspective, they have a lot of points. A lot of characters and places thrown in quickly, and both sides are portrayed as the good guys. While most WoW fans wont have a problem with this, it goes against most films in america. I loved it, but it really was a movie for fans, just a good thing that blizz has a huge fan base around the world.
That Deadline assessment is exactly the numbers i came up with saturday morning in my post. I put it at 30-40 mil, i also said that it was on the high side in case more than just people attached to the franchise went to see the movie also.Not to bad.
People from USA are so stupid, they are relying on stupid critics and not watching this movie. Such shame. Well, can't expect more from McDonalds and Fox News fanboys
Haters gonna hate sums it all up. I liked the film, went with someone who had never played and now he wants to.
I have to say I really enjoyed the movie...well done Blizzard Well done.
I am in a media ban atm from all yours and other twitch broadcasts until after the movie releases as I dont want any spoilers now the Americans have seen it and believe its open slather on spoiling. Movie dowsnt release until 16 June here and will be seeing it that night. Dont know if its possible but with all your contact with the producers of this movie, that if they release a sequel can they for the love of god do a world release rather than this staggered archaic release crap. It fractures the world community talking about it !
Not sure what they are talking about with the '$500M break-even' comment, the budget of the film was $160M.
Jeez, what theater are you going to?
F*** the miniatures how much do i have to bleed to get a full size suit of armor and a sword and shield?
I wonder if the King wondered if he could bring the voice on over from Preacher?
Man, you can always count on blizz to screw over hoard fans... All the alliance weapon replicas are 1:1, while the horde weapons are only 1:6. Lame.
They shouldn't care about USA anyway. China & (and soon India) is and will be the new economic powerhouses. USA is rifled with problems currently and the average person there doesn't have money or sheer spending power like the Chinese. USA is done. It's more promising to be doing well in the Chinese market. In fact I think they should shift more marketing to these countries.
I went to see the movie last night with my dad at about 7:30. We were the first ones there, and only about six people showed up after that. We both really enjoyed the movie - my dad had played the Warcraft games in the past but didn't remember them much, but he recognized the orc structures! I helped explain some of what happened on the way home... but it was a pretty good movie. The worst part about it was introduction to characters, but you've only got so much time in a movie, and you don't want to rush the plot.But yeah. There were about 8 or 9 of us in that showing.
>5.6MThat can't be current. I swear the sub numbers have gone up since the movie came out.My server is usually dead silent (I like it that way for questing) and yesterday I got stuck in a login queue for the first time since WoD came out. Trade Chat was full of people asking nooby questions too, not bad ones just stuff like "What's the difference between Green and Blue items?" etc. Hopefully this means I won't have to have "WoW is dead!" stuffed in my ears constantly.
