Korea's done just amazing. Flat from last week, and New Year's next week ensures a very soft drop. Japan's doing extremely well as well. Looks to do about 40 million total. Asia alone could gross in excess of 110 million.

It needs a Chinese release. The way Asia has done, it could do gangbusters in China.

Hopefully. Even if it's a buyout and not a revenue share. But didn't they sing Do You Hear the People Sing during the Tiananmen Square protests? That might be a problem in importing the movie into China.

Tom Hooper's Le Mis, opening opposite Django on Christmas Day, also jumped the $100 million mark domestically. The film reached the milestone in 13 days, the fastest for any musical. Combined with international earnings of $81 million, Les Mis has earned $184.6 million worldwide.
