BOX OFFICE: 'Life of Pi' Continues to Dominate; 'Back to 1942' Strong at #2 Again
on December 11, 2012
For the third consecutive weekend, Life of Pi grabbed the #1 spot at the Chinese box office. With an incredible $25.88 million (down just 3.8 percent from last weekend), Ang Lee's film is riding a wave of extraordinary word of mouth in China. Through 18 days of release, the film has now grossed $68.9 million in the country. That moves Life of Pi up to #17 of all-time in China, just behind Inception at #16 with $70.42 million.
Back to 1942 also impressed in its second weekend with another $23.4 million. Its Chinese total sits at $44.7 million after just 11 days in release, placing it at #31 all-time.
Rounding out the top five were The Last Supper ($4.5 million with a cume of $10.7 million), My Sassy Hubby (debuting to $1.77 million in 3 days) and 2012 3D ($1.73 million for a new cume of $20.67 million). 2012 is less than $120,000 away from surpassing Quantum of Solace to enter the top 100 of all-time in China.
