Warcraft Movie Is a Huge Hit in China, Delighting Hollywood Investors

(Yicai Global) June 14 -- Warcraft, a cinematic adaptation of the same-name video game, has raked in CNY1 billion (USD151.73 million) in its first five days of release in China, despite lackluster box-office results in the US.

Some 10 million players of the Blizzard Entertainment Inc. Warcraft video game are from China, accounting for 10 percent of its total players. Most viewers of the Warcraft movie are male, aged between 28 and 40 years, and are fans of the video game.

The production company, Legendary Pictures LLC, was acquired by China's Dalian Wanda Group Corp. in March for CNY23 billion (USD3.49 billion).
