Warcraft Movie Loses Big Bucks Despite Chinese Revenue - MMORPG.com

According to a report at The Hollywood Reporter, the Warcraft movie will ultimately lose big money despite a strong showing in China. The US market for Warcraft is largely considered to have been a failure, generating only $46.6M as compared to China's $220.8M. Overall the film will likely lost about $15M with losses shared by Legendary Pictures, Universal and a trio of Chinese investors.

It will remain to be seen how much digital revenue is brought in when the movie is released for download and / or DVD purchase.
