Finally I can say it: 800 is one of the best war pic I've ever seen. Definitely the best choice to save cinemas at this point. Ready for it to smash!

They dare to put it up at this time for a reason!

 

Remember the rumour that it was supposed to come out in Dec 2019? It would have cut maybe more than half out of Sheep without Shepherd's box office... but now is a great time also to save the market. Maybe Disney China is looking closely also before booking Mulan.
 

No film in their right mind wants to be stuck between 800 and Tenet..

Prisoner of Azkaban wasn't released in China?

 

If yes, they should release this one next then. 🙂

Figure released by Douban/ Mtimes before HP 7.2 was released.

 

HP3 is in the 3rd row, and it made RMB62m. The 1st HP made only RMB21m. and each sequel gross more than the last entry.

In the plot twist, China beat domestic as the biggest box office zone in 2020.

All tickets are bought via internet. So everything is more presales loaded.

Nice to see Harry Potter’s first film make some money in China. So far, Philosopher’s/Sorcerer’s Stone is at $984M WW ($16M away from $1B), though it might be updated with the China-gross soon enough.

984 is wrong, if you are picking from Mojo.

 

The original run was $975.8mn. $2.5mn re-releases in Europe, $2.2mn in South Korea. $1mn Domestic. That gave $981.5mn. There may be some smaller re-releases.

 

$4.75mn today in China, so $986.25mn.

So Maoyan app opened registration for outside China, and there are no "I" letter countries allowed. Only "I" is the exception. 

 

Blocking India would make sense but all "I" nations. 😕

 

I hope they don't close the box office reporting to just registered accounts.

 

Edit: ok seems like those aren't ISD code but China's local code. Why no I still.

So when's Tenet gonna start presales in China? And I'm surprised Mulan still doesn't have a date announced. Only 13 days left until the 28th.

Well weekend take;

 

Harry Potter: ¥95mn ($13.7mn) weekend. Good start, though expected a bit better. Should be able to do another ¥45mn ($6.5mn) or so before 800 go wide next Friday. Biggest Hollywood film of 2020 till Mulan release. Full run ¥175mn ($25mn.)

 

Bad Boys For Life: ¥22mn ($3.2mn). SKIP.

 

The Eight Hundred: ¥14.5mn ($2.1mn) previews on Friday. The film WOM is great, there will be previews throughout weekdays, which I think can take it to ¥105-140mn ($15-20mn)before going wide. Let' see.

 

Interstellar: ¥12mn ($1.7mn). -60%. Total ¥112mn. Guess will do another ¥10mn or so.

 

Dolittle: ¥6mn ($875k). -58%. ¥130mn ($18.8mn) total. Another ¥5mn or so.

From early looks of it 800 looks like ¥40mn ($5.7mn) previews today but I will be fine with ¥35mn.

 

Potter seems like ¥13-14mn ($2mn) Monday.
