Warcraft movie premieres in the US, racks up huge ticket pre-sales


This is a huge week for the Warcraft movie. After releasing overseas, the motion picture adaptation of Blizzard’s video game universe will be coming to theaters in the US this Friday. However, last night was the official Hollywood premiere for the film, and it drew quite a crowd.

Blizzard Watch has plenty of pictures from the red carpet, although the most talked-about was the appearance of Jamie Lee Curtis cosplaying a very green Orc. Already the movie has racked up very impressive ticket pre-sales, rising to the third highest ever in the industry after The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Furious 7. Analysts are expecting the film to make between $100M and $150M in its first week of full release.

If you’re a T-Mobile subscriber, you could even go see the movie for free. The mobile phone company is giving customers free Warcraft tickets as part of its T-Mobile Tuesdays promotion. There are also other prizes that subscribers can win, including a viewing party and a Warcraft battle axe.
