Warcraft Makes a Killing at International Box Office with $16.3M
A few of the major movie sites around the Internet have published advanced reviews for Warcraft, which do not paint it in a favorable light. Most call it a movie made for gamers only, and some have hinted at a big summer flop. While we don't know how the movie will fare on U.S. soil, as it won't open until June 10, the movie is making a killing with an impressive $16.3M debut through Friday in International markets.

Directed by the late David Bowie's son Duncan Jones, Warcraft arrives from Legendary and Universal Pictures as yet another video game adaptation in a market that has not been favorable to them. The movie took in $9.3M on Thursday, invading a total of 20 markets. The movie is currently #1 at the foreign box office in 19 of those, defying expectations all around. According to Deadline, the movie is looking at a weekend cume of $30M.

'Warcraft' Trailer #2 Has Azeroth on the Brink of War
Last week during Universal Pictures' CinemaCon presentation, the studio unveiled a new trailer for Warcraft, which is shaping up to be one of this summer's biggest movies when it hits theaters nationwide on June 10. Thankfully, those who weren't in Las Vegas last week don't have to wait long to see this footage, with the Legendary Pictures YouTube page debuting the trailer online. This teaser is chocked full of action-packed scenes that any fan of the beloved video game will surely enjoy.

Warcraft is set in the realm of Azeroth, which has enjoyed peace for hundreds of years. Now this magical land stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders. Orc warriors are fleeing their dying home to colonize another. As a portal opens to connect the two worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces extinction. From opposing sides, two heroes

'Warcraft' Character Posters Reveal Medivh and Khadgar
While video game adaptations fail more often than not at the box office, that trend could be reversed this year with the highly-anticipated Warcraft. Only one movie, 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, has earned more than $100 million domestically at the box office, but that movie may have some company when Warcraft debuts on June 10. To get fans ready for this highly-anticipated release, the Warcraft Movie Twitter page has released two new character posters, revealing Medivh The Guardian (Ben Foster) and Khadgar The Seeker (Ben Schnetzer).

YouTuber Tolkfan has discovered a new international trailer for this video game adaptation, which teases that the Horde and the Alliance are trying to find a way to peacefully co-exist in the magical realm of Azeroth. Of course, war is still coming, but Anduin Lothar (Travis Fimmel) and the Orc Durotan (Toby Kebbell) are trying to work together.

'Warcraft' TV Spot Reveals Action-Packed New Footage

'Warcraft' TV Spot Reveals Action-Packed New Footage
Just yesterday, Legendary released an extended TV trailer for Warcraft. Today, we get a :30 TV spot, and it delivers even more action-packed footage. This will either be one of this summer's biggest hits, or a substantial bomb that could devastate video game fans awaiting more adaptations at the movie theater. A lot is riding on Warcraft. And the latest trailer promises an epic fantasy blockbuster that is sure to thrill genre fans. But will the rest of America be buying that ticket?

Warcraft has a good shot at become the highest-grossing video game adaptation of all time. The competition is fairly lax, though. Lara Croft: Tomb Raider currently holds the record with $131.1 million, and this movie debuted way back in 2001. If Warcraft is a hit, it could pave the way for other highly-anticipated movies such as Assassin's Creed, starring Michael Fassbender, and Splinter Cell, which has Tom Hardy set to star.

'Warcraft' TV Trailer Ignites an Epic War Between Humans and Orcs
2016 could end up being the year that proves movies based on video games can actually succeed. As of now, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider is the only video game adaptation that has made more than $100 million domestic, but that may change with the June 10 release of Warcraft. Today, Legendary has debuted a new 60-second TV spot, along with two new posters, one of which showcases the mighty Ogrim (Robert Kazinsky). This epic battle could very well kickstart a new wave of successful video game adaptations, some of which are already in the works.

Warcraft might even become the highest-grossing video game adaptation ever, breaking Lara Croft: Tomb Raider's record of $131.1 million back in 2001. This movie's potential success could pave the way for other highly-anticipated movies such as Assassin's Creed, starring Michael Fassbender, and Splinter Cell, which has Tom Hardy set to star.

'Saban's Power Rangers' Begins Production

  • LRM Online
Hollywood certainly does a great job of banking of our nostalgia. From comic book movies to reboots of beloved film franchises, they certainly know how to tap into our emotional core as human beings, like it or not. The next group to get catered to will be the many generations of Power Rangers fans, a long-running TV series that's been on the small screen since the early 1990s.

Sure, there have been a few movies in the series' long run, but none of them set the world on fire. The first film--which featured Ivan Ooze as the main villain--while a solid attempt to adapt something to the big screen, failed to succeed on many levels, and after that one, the movies only went downhill from there. With this Lionsgate production, the studio hopes to revitalize the brand for a modern audience.

The film is set for a March 24, 2017 release, and with that in mind,

'Power Rangers' Movie Begins Shooting
It's finally happening! Power Rangers is officially shooting. Lionsgate announced the news earlier today. Saban, the company behind the longstanding action franchise, has its cast and crew in Vancouver, where production is now underway.

Following five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary, Saban's Power Rangers brings the popular TV show to the big screen in 2017. This group of outsiders learn that their small town of Angel Grove - and the rest of the world - is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.

The film stars Dacre Montgomery as Jason the Red Ranger, Rj Cyler as Billy the Blue Ranger, Naomi Scott as Kimberly the Pink Ranger,

War Is Coming in Latest 'Warcraft' TV Spot
It's been quite some time since we've seen any footage from Legendary's highly-anticipated Warcraft, which is shaping up to be one of this year's biggest movies, opening on June 10. The studio released a new TV spot in November, but we haven't seen anything from this video game adaptation since then. Earlier today, the studio released another TV spot with brand new footage that showcases the magical land of Azeroth and the battle between the Horde and the Alliance, which aired during the NFL Playoffs.

The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders. Orc warriors are fleeing their dying home to colonize another. As a portal opens to connect the two worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces extinction.
