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.
