Dunkirk is not really a war drama, so the Hacksaw Ridge comparison seems a little flawed. But $60m would be a great result for Dunkirk in China if it's able to reach that kind of number. TDKR made $50m and TDK made $0 in that market. Every dollar helps when you take big risks. Dunkirk is the riskiest large budget project of Nolan's career. 

 

It is risky that's why I wouldn't jump to conclusions yet.

 

Nolan fans are usually stubborn and annoying so. :sweat:

Spidey doesn't have a release date yet? Possibly September 8th? If that is the case, I think Dunkirk is screwed. Spidey's opening will crush Dunkirk before it has a chance to grow any legs.

The effective summer blackout is set to end Aug. 25 when both “Cars 3” and “Baby Driver” cruise into Chinese multiplexes. “Dunkirk” follows on Sept. 1. The only other U.S. film currently known to have an August release date is “My Other Home,” which goes out Aug. 11, but that film, from Sidney Kimmel Entertainment, has a significant Chinese component in that it was produced by Beijing Forbidden City Film and dramatizes the life of basketball star Stephon Marbury as he discovers China. - Variety

 

September will be packed :P

Saw Apes in HK. Chinese won't enjoy this movie. I have the same feeling about Dunkirk. See latter next week.

DM3 took a 50% show hit today and will drop a not too bad 25% to 32m. It wont lose shows tomorrow with a small opener taking shows from other films. Looking for a small bump to 40m on friday and 60ish on sat and sun for a 160m weekend down 63%. Not bad these days. A 240m week taking the total to 867m on thursday.  With a weak slate of openers, the following week should score 100m or more and then another 35m. Im thinking 1000m/$147m will happen. 2.27x OW.

 

TF5 lost 70% shows and will drop 66% to 2.35m. It is targeting a 1550m/ $228m total.

I have a feeling that this year summer blackout will be stricter than the past few years, after we experienced somewhat lenient control last year

Wukong's bad WOM is beginning to drag down on its Box Office.

Great title... whole China loves Sun Wu Kong, but WoM made its Friday smaller than its Thurs.

If its Saturday is sub 80m.... then many studios wil regret not taking that July 21 Weekend slot. Good weekend but everyone is avoiding...too afraid of competition.

I enjoyed it. It is more like a drama film and remind me of 12 Years a Slave

 

The facial features and actions of Caesar and Apes are so great so natural. But it's not how "we" judge if a movie have great VE. They judge that by how many thrilling spectacles it shows, like Furious or TF series, "the best VE in human history."

 

Also, the story won't work for most Chinese audience. It's a Impetuous era and it's too hard for them to have fun from a movie without complicated plots and fast-paced.
