Update: Warcraft set records in China with a 4-day $150-million-plus opening.

Warcraft — the movie adaption of the popular video game — is opening big overseas, with an expected $30 million launch. This Game of Thrones meets Avatar-style movie is a mix of live-action and computer-generated imagery (CGI) and tells the story of humans and orcs in Azeroth, with sword-wielding human hero Anduin Lothar (Travis Fimmel) and hammer-wielding Orc hero Durtan (Toby Kebbell) as the central characters. Directed by Duncan Jones, the film co-stars Clancy Brown (Sleepy Hollow), Dominic Cooper (Captain America: First Avenger), Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma), Robert Kazinsky (Pacific Rim/Second Chance), and Daniel Wu (Hong Kong movie star) as humans or orcs, along with local actors Ryan Robbins, Daniel Cudmore and Dan Payne.
