I don't think we have a Maoyan yet, but TPP shouldn't be all that different. Still, this score is so low I'd bet the Maoyan is a bit higher, maybe 7.5

X-men: Dark Phoenix starts with a 7.5 on Maoyan

As I thought. Still horrific though

Can Godzilla actually benefit from that 7.5 Maoyan score for DP?

Considering Apocalypse (which wasn't even well-received outside China) has an 8.9 on Maoyan, I really wonder what they messed up in Dark Phoenix for it to be so divisive.

It doesn't seem divisive to me. It seems like most people aren't liking it all that much.

Wow that's horrifically bad since China was the one market still on board for this franchise and Fox's reasoning for moving Dark Phoenix to June supposedly was cause of China. Though I think @Gavin Feng disputed that at the time.

Less than 250? That’s pretty unlikely even still.

It needs to be seriously carried by OS-China for it to go over and I don't expect that. At this stage the movie won't even cross 60 mil total in China.

I'm really curious why. China loved Apocalypse despite that film losing a lot of the audience from Days of Future Past. Without having seen the film, I can only guess that some diehard X-Men fans are getting turned off by the character decisions. Because otherwise, the formula doesn't seem that different from Apocalypse.

Characters/actors fans are big parts of many films’ early buzz in China. Venom definitely got benefits from the delay because audience had more time to adjust their expectations on the chemistry of Venom & Eddie.

 

Not spoiler but Kinberg destroyed Professor X by stupid writing, and McAvoy & Erik-Charles fans didn’t feel so good. Many characters changed their position so easy...I mean they actually have some good reasons to fight for what they are standing for, but Kinberg didn’t care so much and just made the plots move on as quick as he wanted. Some lines especially from Jean did really waste what the actress tried to do(trough trailers you probably already knew that...). And I think general audience can feel these problems though some cool scenes from Magneto.

Actually Phoenix was not that bad after seen it. People are being either too harsh or sheep:ph34r:.

 

Solid action design, fast pace, great visuals, great cinematograph, good performance. weak plot and paperthin villain though. Much better than Zilla still.

Aladdin :- $220K / $42.87 Million ... At 4 PM Today ...

 

Definitely DP Poor Response Will Help Aladdin As Well ... But On Smaller Note  ... At Maximum Life Time Numbers Might Touch $55 M ..
