Exactly. Not bad at all. Could have been much worse with that type of audience score...

True. 1.25 would have been embarrassing. 1.45 with a total around what it was supposed to open at is ok.

¥30mn for Andhadhun. Right in way to ¥70-75mn FSS, which will be equal or more than first FSS. 

 

P Storm did ¥50mn, so it will hard for Andhadhun to be #1 tomorrow.

 

Though showcount Andhadhun will cross 50k tomorrow, so chances are there for Monday to achieve the feat.

 

Endgame will cut its legs in Week 3 otherwise would have done ¥400mn. Now ¥350mn ($52mn) seems like a probable number. Still huge, that will be 4x India gross and budget is just $4mn. Indian studio will get $5mn Approx from China IMO.

4m is production budget?

 

It is surpassing Hichki to become leggiest release at CBO since then.

No, Including P&A. China P&A budget shall be around $3-4mn Approx but that will be of Chinese distributor. Chinese distributor would earn $6mn plus approx.

 

Theatrical returns outside China to producer was $6mn. Global theatrical returns $10-11mn including China. Another $4mn from ancillaries most probably.

 

$14-15mn returns on $4mn Approx investment. $70mn worldwide gross.

4m including P&A is cheap. Great profits. almost 300% ROI.

21% bump for Shazam on Friday for 7.5 Fri, 247+ cume.

Guessing 15-20 on Sat and Sun combined for 22.5-27.5 2nd weekend and 262-267 10-day.

On track for 300 ($45) total.

 

Saturday/Sunday already passed 20 million. Looks like it's gonna be 24+ just for those 2 days.

Yep 24.3 million Yuan for Saturday and Sunday. Not too shabby.

I think the lack of Hollywood competition is helping Shazam. Dumbo fizzled out (plus doesn't have much action), so Shazam is the only blockbuster available until Endgame.

Multiple sources who saw an unfinished cut of Godzilla 2 told me this film is spectacular. One told me it was pretty brilliant, and one more described the reactions after the screening: Infinity War is the only one in recent years can compare with it.

For MIB4, I heard Sony has more ambition of getting Jun.7 for it, which means it might enjoy the 4 day Dragon Boat Festival weekend of Jun.6-9. Also, Sony hope another big title from them can land in China a week before the rest of the world.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters, MIB: International, Dark Phoenix passed the censorship in China as expected. If things go right, Godzilla 2 & DP will come to May.31 & Jun.7.

I hope Godzilla 2 pulls off an Aquaman-type run with $300 million. It looks like pure unadulterated spectacle which GA in China should love.

Maoyan is forecasting 297 finish. Seems legit as won't add anything substantial after AEG opens.

Close enough for me. About where I'm at.

 

Might be a bit lower.

 

Yesterday was 2.88. Today is hard to say. 2.06 at 7:25pm. Did very little the last several hours but picked up a bit in the last hour.
