The Warcraft movie had a lackluster opening in North America, however, overseas the film has been setting records. This means that a sequel is much more likely than we would have otherwise thought. We've seen situations before where the Chinese box office has turned lackluster films into successes, but this may be the very first time that foreign success has made a film that would have otherwise bombed a bona-fide hit.

We know that Duncan Jones is interested in making another Warcraft movie, and with the money that the movie made in China, we're sure that Universal is also interested. Rather than simply making a sequel for the sake of the box office, here are the ways they can make Warcraft 2 a better movie overall:

Warcraft 1

Have A Main Character

One of the problems that Warcraft had was that the film lacked focus. Not having a dedicated lead is ok, if you have an ensemble cast working together. However, Warcraft has so much going on in so many places that the structure doesn't work as an ensemble, either. If Lothar is our story's hero, that's fine, but then focus on telling the story from his perspective. We know that Warcraft is steeped in lore, but the audience only needs to know the parts that are vital to the story being told. Pick a perspective, and stick with it.
