China Box Office: 'Kong: Skull Island' opens to Muscular $72M
The Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment blockbuster scored Hollywood’s second-largest opening in China this year.
Kong: Skull Island roared into the Middle Kingdom over the weekend, earning a muscular $72 million, according to studio figures.
The big bow gives the Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment film claim to Hollywood’s second-largest opening in China this year, behind only Resident Evil’s surprising $94 million February debut.
Opening on 18,000 screens, Kong easily cast Disney’s Beauty and the Beast aside.
Director Jia Zhangke to Launch International Film Festival
Held in the ancient city of Pingyao, the event is being described as China’s first boutique cinema event, with festival veteran Marco Muller serving as artistic director.
Chinese director and Cannes favorite Jia Zhangke is launching a new film festival in his hometown in Northern China.
Announced at the China Film Directors Centre in Beijing on Thursday, the inaugural Pingyao “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” International Film Festival will take place in Pingyao Ancient City, a UNCESCO World Heritage site, in China’s Shanxi Province on Oct. 19-26.
“Beauty and the Beast” easily dominated a polarized and quieter than average weekend at the Chinese box office.
It earned a very solid $42.8 million in its opening three days, according to local box office service Ent Group. Disney reported the figure as $44.8 million.
With an average of 100,000 screenings per day, “Beauty” was set up to win. And on all three days, it enjoyed a mid-60% market share. Disney reported that its score was the highest ever opening for a Disney Live Action – meaning Lucasfilm or Marvel – title.
