Many predicted Warcraft wouldn’t do that well in theaters state-side, but it triumphed in China.
Now, the movie’s official Weibo account (that’s China’s Twitter) has posted a message seemingly indicating that a sequel is on the way.
The message read: “Warcraft‘s theatrical run is coming to an end. But the chapter of a new decade has just begun. It’s a starting point, not an end point. We don’t say goodbye now because we’ll meet you again!” (Roughly translated.)
While Warcraft made only $46 million in the U.S., it has pulled in $376 million overseas. In China, it fared better than Star Wars: The Force Awakens and all of Marvel’s movies.
According to /Film‘s Ethan Anderton, “This is the first video game movie I’ve seen where most of the fans of the game appear to be satisfied with how the film was brought to life… With all the universe building out of the way, a Warcraft sequel can finally dig into the rich world that the video game offers.”
