Avatar, being abnormaly huge, it is a step behind than the little boat. Titanic sold about 50 million admissions more than Avatar just domestically.

 

And since we are in Chinese thread, I still find hard to believe the $43m figure in China of 1998 when the market was a joke compared with today...

 

In terms of China gross, I would argue that Avatar is just as impressive as Titanic, if not more so. Considering how Avatar was able to triple the previous record, if I remember correctly, Titanic did about 2.X times previous record, not quite tripling it, Avatar did it in a bigger and more competitive market as well. 

As for Domestic and Europe, Titanic beats Avatar handily no question, most of rest of the world as well.

Highest top 2 average Maoyan for a weekend in a long long time, right? Maybe ever, if the average can hold at 9.3+?

If TS4 wasn't competing with Spirited Away this weekend (which has even higher ratings) and FFH next weekend, I think it could have had a big breakout. Of course, anything over $50 million would still be good by Pixar standards.

After Spidey are there big movies opening? it could pull a dangal which opened with Guardians 2 and kept on running towards a big gross. I am not hoping for 1B yuan but 400m would be good 🙂

For Spirited Away I will wait for general audience reaction because the initial reactions were all fans who have loved film for so many years.

Even on Douban, Spirited Away has a 9.3 score after receiving over 1 million user ratings.

Yeah that's what I am saying. The film has already been watched. A lot by so many people.

 

Will they watch it again by spending money. That's the thing.

True, that is a good question. I think Spirited Away is one of those masterpieces that never gets old. I have watched it many times now, and I would gladly pay to see it in theaters if it ever re-releases. In any case, at least it will earn enough from China to take the title of highest grossing anime film back from Your Name.

I would be surprised if the GA doesn't like it as much as the fans do.

Naver Audience rating 9.65. So what's the issue with WOM in Korea?

I am predicting MY 9.2 at best which is still not enough for a break out
