CHINA: 'No Man's Land' Takes #1 Despite Long Delay
on December 10, 2013
No Man’s Land finally hit theaters in its home country last weekend, over three-years after production wrapped on the story about a lawyer’s journey to rural China. No Man’s Land led the weekly box office with a six-day gross of $21.97 million. Last week’s leader, The White Storm, added $14.75 million to its tally during its first full week of release. The Chinese crime thriller has grossed a total of $27.88 million during its run. Another Chinese film, action sequel The Four 2, rounded a top three composed solely of domestic releases. The Four 2 took in $14.21 million from a weekend debut.
Gravity was the top performing import in China for yet another week. Alfonso Cuarón’s sci-fi film added $8 million in its latest frame, bringing its Chinese total to $66.98 million. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire spent another week in Gravity’s shadow, managing a $2.65 million performance to take its cume to $26.91 million. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opened only two days after Gravity’s premiere in China.
Epic will leave China with a less-than-stellar result. The animated film collected $2.33 million in its first full week, reaching a $6 million total. Thor: The Dark World and Escape Plan are culminating their time on the top ten chart. The superhero sequel has grossed $55.34 million over 31 days in release. Escape Plan, the Stallone/Schwarzenegger vehicle, outgrossed its $24.6 million North American total with a $40.93 million Chinese cume.
