Did TS3 not get a China release? I don't see it on the BOM international breakdown page. 

 

I thought I'd remembered it having a release there, for some reason.

Why do some Chinese films make so much money in their home countries but almost no money anywhere else?

Eh; not sure what you are getting at. Applies for many local language films in their respective countries; eg Bollywood films or Japanese films.

 

I note that in most cases, only Chinese films with big Hong Kong stars/directors (such as Jackie Chan/Stephen Chow/Donnie Yen/Chow Yun Fatt) generally also do well in other parts of Asia (mainly South East Asia)

Ah yes that's what I'm talking about. Mainland Chinese movies struggle outside of mainland China. But Japanese movies can become big in China, for instance. Even an Indian movie like Dangal  was big in China.

Bollywood actually has a market of potential $50mn outside India, which can further extended to $300mn or higher with markets like China, Japan and Korea.

Yes i know. But these does not apply to all or most Bollywood films; only high profile films or those where a few known actors are involved or critically acclaimed films.

 

Same as China; some films with well known stars do well elsewhere as well.

 

Issue is the language barrier... many audiences still will not watch a movie which is not their native tongue (other than English). 

 

With China, there is also issue of propaganda films like Wolf Warriors / Operation Red Sea / Wandering Earth did not do that well overseas.
