Refresh to last…: Yet another international box office framework was led by Chinese films in their domestic market as the May 1 local fallout continued to play after a record-breaking holiday session. While a handful of studio titles are doing business in other pockets of the world, we’re kind of on hold until majors like UK and France start opening in the coming weeks. , and like Universal’s F9 Overseas turnstiles are expected to increase for Hollywood from May 19.
In particular this session in China, that of Zhang Yimou Cliff walkers climbed past the May 1 holiday winner My love. The former now has an estimated cume of $ 118.2 million compared to $ 114 million for the poorly rated romantic drama.
At the same time, Miramax has finally started sharing numbers on the film directed by Guy Ritchie. Anger of man which, as we noted earlier, has been performing very well in Russia since the end of April. Jason Statham star, who led nationally this session, grossed $ 4.4 million internationally this session to give him an offshore cume of $ 17.6 million and $ 25.6 million at the World level. This includes $ 10 million in Russia where it has been No. 1 for a few weeks. The film debuts in China tomorrow (Monday) and leads presales there for the day. It has already grossed $ 780K in stealths in China since Saturday. Statham is a big draw in China so hopefully that continues its streak. IMAX has so far made $ 1 million worldwide on the film.
In IMAX, Cliff Walkers added $ 1.7 million to this framework; earlier this week, he set a May 1 record for a local title. Overall, it lies behind Avengers: Endgame as the highest IMAX box office release on record during the early May holidays. The IMAX cume is now $ 8 million after just 10 days of release, or 7% of the national total.
