I know 2020 is an anomaly but USA is currently $1.9Bn and China is around $400mn.

 

China has two potential $300-400mn, TENET and Mulan can do $300mn in between them. 

 

If more local films like Better Days, Chinese New Year releases are allowed, we may get that.

I think Canada might be enough to prevent China outgrossing Domestic. China over USA this year like you say is possible though.

Canada in normalcy do a billion dollar. We were looking at around 800-900mn this year, with half the year gone in bin, I wonder if it can.

 

Also will need US opening up for big films. Canada cant do much without those.

 

China has luxury of local films, few of wwhich were banned last year due to censorship and Chinese New Year releases which didnt release.

Yeah good point if there isn’t enough new releases Canada won’t perform nearly as well. Will be interesting to see how Tenet and New Mutants do, we will probably have a clearer picture in a months time.

October should add another 1 billion plus. If Sacrifice works, may be that alone will add that much but PS so far are just decent. Will cross USA/Canada is currently $2.1 Billion. Japan will cross $1 billion this year as well.

I have a feeling 2019 could be the final year where the US/Canada combined "Domestic" box office would be more than the Chinese one.

 

With the pandemic still raging across North America well into 2021, China's BO will retain its lead for next year as well.

 

It will be interesting to see what 2022 brings.

There's a chance of hitting $3Bn and ¥20Bn. In the last few months, difference between 2019 and 2020 is missing basically Hollywood films to large extent. If 2021 can be 10% down from 2019 local films, it will be ¥38.5Bn ($5.8mn), something pretty certain USA/Domestic ain't doing plus whatever they will get from Hollywood or whether it will be down from 2019 in first place.
