CHINA: 'Elysium' Claims the Top Spot with $11.75M, 'Gatsby' Posts a Strong Hold to Reach $9.65M
on September 11, 2013
Elysium opened in first place in China, taking $11.75 million over its first four days on the market. The first place finish for the film set it above a trio of domestic debuts in limited release that opened to middling results at the box office. The Midas Touch opened in seventh place with a $2.05 million take from 27,965 showings -a fraction of the 95,334 plays dedicated to Elysium. Dead Sign and Time-travel love both opened to less than 15,000 showings and were unable to break the $1 million mark.
The Stolen Years posted an $8.79 million hold in its second week, bringing its domestic cume to $19.45 million. The Great Gatsby finished the week in third place with a strong $5.22 million hold that brings its total in China to $9.69 million. Jurassic Park 3D crossed the $50 million mark in China after a $4.65 million performance launched the film to a $54.42 million gross. Monsters University finished the week with a mid-table showing on the top ten chart, posting a $3.99 million tally that takes its Chinese total to $32.71 million.
