'Warcraft' Hammers Out $16.3 Million Overseas Opening

"Warcraft" doesn't open in the United States for another two weeks, but it's already faring well in overseas markets.

According to Box Office Mojo, the Legendary Pictures release has already earned $16.3 million in 20 overseas markets, including Russia, Germany and France.

Variety projects that by the end of the weekend, director Duncan Jones' video-game adaptation will have grossed $30 million internationally. "Warcraft" debuted with $4.9 million in Russia, where it enjoyed the second-best opening this year, behind only "Deadpool." That early success overseas stands in contrast to the largely negative reviews the film has received.

Blizzard Entertainment's first live-action video game adaptation, "Warcraft" stars Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Ben Schnetzer, Robert Kazinsky and Daniel Wu.

"Warcraft" roars into North American theaters on June 10.
