Nice bump for DM3. It keeps getting back a lot of shows as it continues to have the highest PTA.  1B almost a certainty now with 2 more weekends in the run.

The protection period of local films is up to their release date. Once Upon a Time was planning to open on Jul.21 with high popularity, so the translations and dubbing jobs of Spidey and Apes didn't start because SARFT and China Film Group put them to Aug/Sep. But the distributor of the film suddenly delayed it, and it was too busy to finish those jobs and let import films open on Jul. 21. The number of July could have been worse if Brotherhood of Blades didn't come to this month from Aug.

based on maoyan daily figure, and my calculation manually, the total box office haul as of 24/7 stand at ¥3.25b Yuan, I see it could fall behind of 2016's July figure, could it really drop from last year's july?

Very possible it will fall, even if The Founding of an Army and Wolf Warriors 2 are strong in pre-sale. Both of them will open on this FRI.

But both have similar trait as both are military themed, could it be some sort of cannibalisation?

The year is down even with several movies overperforming. The Mid sized movies are going to have to pick it up.

FF8 will get the year in the black.  Funny note. FF7s big BO caused the largest monthly YoY drop in a decade the following April at -26%. FF8 will make this April be the first 25%+ increase since last March. January was close but CNY came early.

Analysts have said last year was a hiccup and that after 12 years of 30% annual growth, that they are now expecting 15% which doesn't seem to be happening. They need to look at my BO/GDP ratio. 

 

The Growth stopped cold last year after March and CNY releases finished. It looks like that is the fiscal year for BO.   When comparing April15- March to April 16-March 17, its a 7% drop YoY

YoY drops are not uncommon for the past year. After july boomed 101% and 53% in 2014 and 15, we may have consecutive negative years

Audience may be tired of The Founding of an Army. The Founding of an Republic was the highest grossing local film of all time in 2009, and The Founding of an Party was #7 of 2011 with ¥400m(less than the first one even if stealing many from other films). The distributor of Army compels Maoyan & Taobao to offer the tickets of ¥8.8 &¥9.9 even ¥0.7. It will also steal many from other local films. And the Army can't be rated on movie websites Douban and Mtime. That's really "impressed" us before releasing. 

 

And I heard Army is a great war film from some insiders...while they said that Wolf Warriors 2 is a great action film feeling like xXx or Furious 8. People can enjoy it.
