China Box Office: General Discussion Thread (2019 the worst year for HLW)

Recommended Posts

yes, Japan is more important than China for this case. But I see it as a potentially worse sign because mostly audience from US and China have similar opinions on movies from WDAS, Disney's live-action department and Marvel Studios. So if WOM for a Disney title is not good in here, it could mean that US audience also have some problems with it(of course, those from Lucasfilm & Pixar are exceptions). It's too early to judge or make conclusion, but reducing expectations is reasonable at this point.

Another surprising twist?

 

Elizabeth Banks’ Angles reportedly (per media reactions in Beijing) will have excellent WOM and will break out ......

I'm so not here for KStew return to mainstream. I support Banks, Scott and Balinska but KStew will take all the credit for this and I'm so not here for that. Maybe only she gets bad reviews and they continue with series without her? 🙏

Mmm, that’s too bad, but was always a risk. Hopefully this will be one case where regional reception diverges highly.

Ps has started. Track at Maoyan. It just has 740 show now. It will get interesting only when show count crosses 30k.
Edit: showcount up to 13350. PS is still very low(613K yuan). I think we have to give it another day or 2 before we can gauge. I hope @ZeeSoh will track this.

You just said in CA thread it's receiving an amazing WOM and it's breaking out. Why are you asking then?

4,5mill yuan in PS. Very low. If WOM is good it could do 3 mill$ OD at best.

But around 2,5mill $ sounds more logic

I know Dangal had amzaing run but can that be replicated. May be something similar to Superstar which did well in china as well. I have not seen any other major breakout from bollywood(no other 600m+ yuan run).

actually, that's reason. Superstar was just an extended guest appearance and not that good a film going by reports in India. I couldn't make me sit into film yet. LSC has a huge potential, much more than Dangal I reckon.
