'Warcraft' rocks China's world, makes $46 million on opening day

It had the best day one performance for any film launched during the week in the country's history.

Legendary Pictures

World of Warcraft is a global phenomenon, and Legendary Pictures is reaping the benefits.

"Warcraft", which will launch on Friday in the US, made $46 million on its first day of screening in China, reports Variety. That gives the film the highest first day box office of any non-weekend film in China's history.

It's beaten, however, by "Furious 7", which opened to $63 million on a Sunday last April.

"Warcraft" is based on Blizzard's megapopular World of Warcraft, which at its height had over 12 million players.
