Spirited Away 9.7/10 on Maoyan after previews

Wow. This would put a lot of pressure on TS4 to at least get a 9.2+. I knew China would love SA. Coco grossed $189M so SA might get $100M+ too with amazing WOM.

What a boring times on CBO. Hopefully Spirited Away break out. Day one pre-sales are ok but day 2 is barely 30% ahead TS4.

I have this feeling that TS4 might get a so-so Maoyan score because of the horror parts of the movie.

I'm a bit lost, Eight Hundred was supposed to be a big movie right?

Massive potential ... easily $500 M + ...

I don't think there's any pressure on TS4. China was dead to Pixar before Coco anyways. Incredibles 2 did some $50mn, so China don't matter to Pixar anyways. Anything default $25-50mn will be fine.

Wow. If it hits 6 on Thu too then am hopeful for a 15 weekend.

3.25 (-46%)

6.50 (+100%)

5.25 (-19%)

= 15.0

And nearly tied on Sunday.

 

I can not remember other cases, but are presales so important in China for animated films? I guess they give signals about its possible run, but I do not think they are so definitive as other fan-driven genres like SH or other well known franchises. Or am I wrong?

Reason for SA frontloaded is because the audience already have watched it and its fan wanna catch it ASAP. So day one rush is more. That's typically case with re-releases or expansion.

 

If GA liked it, will get normal trending from day 2 otherwise crash.

What do those figures translate to in US$? Also, What final gross can we expect?

Teaser trailer of Wu Jing's new film. The budget is soaring beyond the original price. I heard $350M box office is where it shall hit break-even point.

If screen count increases the same way it did last weekend why not more on Sat and Sunday?

Screens are the most important thing for it right now until FFH opens. Then its DOA
