    It is successful outside the US and just goes to show you don't need the US. Anyone who has not seen the film but likes fantasy and just really fun movie should stop listening to the haters and watch it.

    To me the movie was awesome, like the old Warcraft 1 and 2 RTS games, while WoW is a garbage easy PvE MMO.

    Based on my opinion of the movie, I take this as more evidence that the reception of a movie has very little to do with the actual movie - and almost everything to do public perception.
    I am sure that plays a part. 

    Another TVs being bigger and better quality with so many ways for films to be delivered. Not the same experience for sure (go IMAX!) but deemed "OK" by many for something not considered a "must see" at the cinema.

    Also the other films that launch at or around the same time. And a lot of "big" films have launched this summer. A reason, imo, that so many have had so called "soft" openings. Lots of films for people to choose from resulting in - as one site put it - the films cannibalizing each other.

    If you visit the cinema with family or friends on a regular basis and there is only one big new film to see you see that; if there are many you make a choice. And at that point reviews could well make a difference.  
    And it is a summer of mega-blockbusters. Alice didn't deliver but Finding Dorey has. Some refused to believe a little fish could sink Warcraft but with an opening US weekend of $136M all other films - not just Warcraft - were left scrambling for crumbs. And next weekend enter Independence Day.
