Dark Phoenix :- $15.2 M / $27.8 M

KOTM :- $9.37 M / $96.6 M

Aladdin :- $1.68 M / $44.4 M

 

Excellent day for all films ....

Again, totally ignoring local releases which some people are actually interested in.

Lol. Then spend a few minutes googling.. no matter what this a China box office subforum; let’s give some respect to local movies instead of just worried about how Hollywood / Bollywood movie does there. Just a friendly reminder :)

 

Also chasing the dragon is from director Wong Jing; who is actually best known for his comedic roles/movies in Hong Kong decades ago, but went out to direct a series of crap movies in the past decade. Chasing the Dragon (first movie) was Wong Jing’s First solid movie in the past few years; with nominations in the HK film awards. It stars Donnie Yen (Rogue One/xXx: Return of the Xander Cage) and Andy Lau. The first one was a surprised hit and had solid WoM.

Wong Jing filmed the 2nd one; and wanted to carry on the momentum and had confidence in it; but WoM so far seems meh - not doing well in Southeast Asia this time as well. First one was quite bonkers in Southeast Asia.

Talking about respect for local movies, I think Donnie Yen has been in some of those... :redcapes:

Hahah, I know, but from recent posts, I am so fearful that if I bring up Ip Man or Wu Xia, no one will seem to know/care.

So $45 4-day for DARKP more or less. With it's score 1.7-1.8x would be tough even off a 3-day ow.

So off the 4-day I think 1.5 * 45 = $67.5 is realistic.

 

Still more than SHAZAM. It's 4-day will itself beat SHAZAM's total. Shows how much SHAZAM got rejected.

And still Shazam will make more of a profit than Dark Phoenix ever will.

It’s not like they need to make a profit since the studio is now dead and owned by Disney. The actors and all the crew got there pay check so it’s all good.

Well how we looking today boys! Glad KotM seems to have come back alive here.

 

Well looks like a 111m total for KotM. Can it pull it off and get to 140? Maybe more? It’s catching up to Dark Phoenix already so possibly?

 

Boy KotM is lucky it came alive in China....

Around $25 weekend and $29 away from $140 so it should happen imo.

$150 is tough but more surprising things have happened.

 

GZ14 $77

KSI ~$170

KOTM $140+

 

bodes well for GVK's $200 chances.
