It’s because Blizzard Entertainment, the makers of the game, had thoroughly crafted a story of incredible scale and proportions—an entire world built on generations of characters, conflicts, and big freaking weapons.…
Warcraft is being blasted by critics for its dullness and incessant focus on setting up future sequels at the expense of the current movie, but that has not stopped the film from completely storming its way through the Chinese box office, where it’s doing even better than its previous #1 non-weekend launch, Avengers:…
