"Hi, mom" has reached the $700m figure, so the all time list showdown between China and DOM is right now:

 

China vs DOM

1. Wolf Warrior 2 ($880m) vs TFA ($936m)

2. Ne Zha ($777m) vs Avengers - Endgame ($858m)

3. The Wandering Earth ($720m) vs Avatar ($760m)

4. Hi, mom: $704m vs Black Panther ($700m)

5. Avengers - Endgame ($657m) vs Avengers - Infinity War ($678m)

 

This is the first time that one certain spot in the all time list is bigger in China than in DOM. When Hi, mom and DC3 had finished their runs, this situation should happen to spots #3, #4 and #5. We can maybe see something like this:

 

China vs DOM

1. Wolf Warrior 2 ($880m) vs TFA ($936m)

2. Hi, mom ($810m) vs Avengers - Endgame ($858m)

3. Ne Zha ($777m) vs Avatar ($760m)

4. The Wandering Earth ($720m) vs Black Panther ($700m)

5. Detective Chinatown 3 ($690m) vs Avengers - Infinity War ($678m)

 

Chinese figures are obtained with current ERs

Lol, 8.2 for T&J, might finish below WW84. These Max releases have been cursed in China so far, let’s see if GvK turns it around.

Yeah, not advancing a “specifically disliked in China“ thesis. Seems to have poor reception everywhere afaics. You could say the same about WW84 though.    
 

I mean, I was remarking on the coincidence, but “2 MAX movies that have received a China release” is a super small sample size. I don’t think there’s anything here causally.

It looks like the $700M for DC3 and the $800M for Hi, Mom are still on the table.

The prophecy is coming true 🧐

 

What are your expectations for top 3 or 5 HW movies this year?

I think GvK will do well. If it doesn't then we can start the hOlLyWoOd DeAd thing for real.

I'm not sure if I have an answer.

 

In the past, any HLW news sound exciting. Right now, I was like, “the marketing wanted to troll fans for a while before saying what the sub-title of Spider-Man would call? Well, do whatever they want, and I don't care.”

But then are people getting off the cinema and movies on whole because I don't see Chinese movies doing great or anything either. Yes with USA down, Chinese movies did look like doing massive in last few months, but they didn't.

 

The admits of CNY films aren't really much, and may end up lower than 2019 may be.

 

There hasn't been a film truly good from local industry either, like Ne Zha. Hi, Mom response seems cool but trailer was so bad, I am not sure if its actually good.

We haven't had a surefire "would've been a hit pre-Covid" Hollywood film yet, so I think it's a bit too early to judge. GvK should be an indicator and Black Widow will probably be the most telling indicator with how reliable a floor MCU solos tend to have.

Yeah, I personally will not be too worried until we have F9, V2, or an MCU do poor business with good reception.

Just to be clear, if F9 end up doing just $300M, I don't want to hear Hollywood dead thing, because I think F9 is due a big drop.

 

Same for Widow, not entirely sure if that has appeal that you all thinking. V2 may be Venom was a fluke.

 

Spider-man 3 is the first film I think is there to truly judge it.
