It'll definitely recoup its budget with China alone. Singapore/Malaysia/Taiwan/HK should combine for about 5-15m total. Australia/NZ seem to be limited release only.

Interesting thing about this movie is that it's getting a US day-date release with Asia.

Prediction: 40m

No, it won't be. A lot of its gross hinges on China. I see something like 20-25m total there. The way that the holidays this year fell will allow movies to co-exist with each other there. Taiwan could do 5m but to me I feel that is the most unknown. It could go way higher than that or bomb. HK will do 3-5m. Singapore/Malaysia might do 2-4m each.
