Warcraft is Expected To Flop At The Box Office

The upcoming Warcraft film is expected to only perform moderately during its opening weekend.

As Variety reports, early tracking says that the film will only make a projected $25 million, which is very small considering its $160 million budget.

This low estimate is due to bad reviews (the film currently has 22% on the reviews aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes), and according to Variety, the film could be behind the likes of Conjuring 2 and Now You See Me 2 on its opening weekend.

Warcraft is already in theaters in some countries now like France, Indonesia, and Philippines, and by June 8 it will be released in most of Europe. The film will hit U.S. theaters on June 10, and it's expected to get an early release in China.
