    Your initial statement was about the movie as a whole, and therefore the numbers count for the movie as a whole, in all territories it aired. When evaluating whether it "bombed" or not, it doesn't matter where it did well and where it did poorly, what does matter is how it did in total.

    If it did lose money, it was still close to breaking even, and might have even passed that point by now with post-theatrical releases.
    Wrong. Box office is how you determione whether it bombed. The point about China is they already lost almost 20 million to begin with. Take away that one country and the production company that made the film took an absolute bath on it. If people really loved the film like you seem to think, it wouldn't have lost money.

    Fantasy medieval like stuff is somewhat popular right now. The Witcher was a bit of a mess while did decent among the non-gamer market with many having no clue it was based on a video game. As long as it stays in line with the others along with dropping Warcraft from the title it might do alright if it doesnt get drowned out by the many others out there. Though by the time it comes out the market might shift.

    Only when it has a somewhat good writing, story and universe.

    Imagine being a company working on a game for more than 15 years and still managing to fuck it up so badly:

    And where did you get that idea? You don't need to guess what I think, I have stated in previous posts what I think, and it's not that.

    Popularity and enjoyment are two different things. Something can be considered good and even very good, without becoming popular (and therefore selling a lot), and something that is not considered very good can become very popular and sell well.
