Warcraft Is Now the Most (Financially) Successful Video Game Movie, Sequels Possible

Mileage may vary on other success metrics.

The Warcaft movie hasn't been as much of an overwhelming cultural phenomenon as the game(s) it's based on, but despite disappointing critical reception and poor performance domestically, it's taken in enough moviegoer dollars overseas to make it the most financially successful video game movie of all time. That's good news for all those sequels the movie seemed to assume it would get.

Cautiously Optimistic: Warcraft Film Picks Up Moon Director

We're probably the last people that you'd expect to be excited for a film set in the universe of World of Warcraft, but that's the position we find ourselves in now. The movie, Warcraft, is supposed to be a live-action version that takes on Blizzard's franchise, but video game movies are notoriously awful.

Even so, it's been revealed that Duncan Jones, director of sci-fi darling Moon, will be at the helm, and that's left us cautiously optimistic.

Blizzard to Craft Unholy Alliance with Facebook

Blizzard announced today that its ongoing revamp of the Battle.net service will introduce one pretty scary optional feature: Facebook integration.  Battle.net is the online matchmaking service that has grouped up players of Starcraft, Warcraft, and Diablo games for thirteen years.  It received a major face lift last year, in preparation for taking an even larger role in the lives of Blizzard's players.  The new service will basically be a gaming social network the likes of Xbox Live, or Steam, instead of just a tiered matchmaker. From the official press release:
"We're pleased to be working with Facebook to integrate their platform with Battle.net to enhance the social-entertainment experience for our players," said Paul Sams, chief operating officer of Blizzard Entertainment. "This new functionality will make it easier than ever to connect with friends on Battle.net and play StarCraft II and future Blizzard Entertainment games together."
