‘Warcraft’ is the Most Successful Video Game Film of All Time

When Legendary Pictures greenlights a sequel to “Warcraft,” you’ll have China to thank — or to blame, depending upon your perspective.

The Duncan Jones film, which crashed and burned at the North American box office while soaring overseas, is now the top-grossing video game adaptation of all time. Let that sink in for a minute.

With a $377.6 million worldwide haul, “Warcraft” has toppled the previous record holder, “Prince of Persia: Sands of Time,” which grossed $335 million 2010. Even when we adjust for inflation, bringing “Prince of Persia” to $370 million in today’s dollars, “Warcraft” still comes out on top.

“Warcraft” plummeted 73 percent, to $6.5 million, in its second weekend of release, bringing its domestic total to just $37.7 million. However, the fantasy adventure is a certified hit in China, where it’s earned more than $200 million.
