CHINA: 'Star Trek Into Darkness' $25M Debut Leads an Animated Weekend on June 04, 2013

startrekgrosses.jpgStar Trek Into Darkness led the Chinese box office in its first week in release, grossing $25.87 million in six days. It's not the blockbuster figure that Paramount might have been hoping for the sci-fi sequel, but is still more than the $23.49 million cume that Oblivion has grossed after 24 days in release. Meanwhile, Iron Man 3 continues to reach blockbuster milestones, reaching a $120.6 million cume in China after 33 days.

Domestic film American Dreams in China continued its healthy run in the box office, grossing $17.98 million last week for a $69 million cume. It is about half of what runaway success So Young has grossed, which is currently posing a $114.71 cume after 38 days.

Children's Day was celebrated in China on June 1st and brought about a number of new animated films for the demographic. Happy Little Submarine 3 - Rainbow Treasure, apart from being a leading contender for the best film title of the year, opened to a weekend gross of $6.82 million. The Adventures of Sinbad 2013 enjoyed a $4.64 million weekend, and Kui Ba 2 grossed $2.93 million over the holiday weekend. The Croods kept its strong hold-over performance in China by grossing $5.73 throughout the week, reaching a successful $62.37 million cume.

'Star Trek Into Darkness' $25M Debut Nearly Triples Predecessor's Opening on June 03, 2013

intodarkness.jpgStar Trek Into Darkness grossed $25 million in its opening week to become the top film in China, according to sources at Paramount. The sci-fi sequel played in over 8,000 cinemas and nearly tripled the overall cume of the previous film in the country. Children's Day, celebrated on June 1st, presented a great opportunity for the latest Star Trek entry, which proved popular with Chinese audiences. The holiday was also a highlight for The Croods, which grossed $2.5 million over the weekend, according to sources at Fox, a good hold after the previous week's 7-day $4.85 million take.

The Hollywood Reporter is stating that the $25 million debut from Star Trek Into Darkness was enough to overtake former #1 film American Dreams in China. THR's source claims the domestic film brought in $17.9 million last week to land in second place.

CHINA: 'American Dreams in China' Dominates as 'Iron Man 3' Nears $120M on May 28, 2013

iron-man-3.jpgAmerican Dreams in China led the Chinese box office in its second week. The Chinese film grossed an eye-opening $33.3 million over the last week, reaching a $50.5 million total in its home market. The film has its sights set on overtaking fellow Chinese hit So Young, which grossed $3.63 million in its fifth week to reach a $113.2 million cume. Iron Man 3 landed in a distant second place in the weekly box office chart, grossing $7.13 million to take its cumulative total in China to an impressive $118.07 million -its most important overseas market. The Croods passed G.I. Joe: Retaliation in China this week with a better-than-expected $56.29 cume. Oblivion will be happy with the $22.29 million it has grossed in 17 days, especially considering its packed release date. The same cannot be said about Django Unchained, a disappointing flop in China with a $2.65 million gross after 15 days.
