Disappointing it didn't beat JW's worldwide opening..hopefully once adjusted numbers come in it's ahead of it.

Still is no big deal because it hasn't released in China yet. If it released in China this weekend and did even remotely close to Jurassic World, it would have blown the WW record out of the park. Hopefully adjustments will get it up.

And JW wasn't opened in Japan yet.

Japan is a tiny market compared to China now.  China will be bigger then the US soon.  Plus China is bigger in producing their own movies then Japan now.  There where eight Chinese movies that grossed over $100 million in China and one that came close to grossing $400 million (Monster Hunt).  Plus more and more western movies get co produced with China now like Kung Fu Panda 3 and the upcoming Need For Speed sequel.

To further proof my previous point just look at the numbers for JW it made $228 million in China and only $74 million in Japan.  Also unlike China, Japan doesn't have any restrictions on how many foreign movies can be shown in theaters each year and they don't have any restrictions on how long a particular movie can run.  Even with those restrictions China is already a much bigger and more important market then Japan.



Lol. I am just putting in the numbers. Not arguing whether or not it will win or not. The last numbers I saw was 517 million. Will check later and uypdate the thread some more with weekend actuals.

There are movies that grossed more in Japan than JW in China.
