on October 15, 2012
Monday (10/15) Update: 20th Century Fox is now reporting that Taken 2's cume in China is $9.8 million.
Sunday (10/14) Update: Taken 2 is off to a good start in China. 20th Century Fox reports that the sequel has grossed an estimated $10.8 million there, which makes it the #1 film in the market. Updated numbers will be released on Monday.
China ranks in 5th place among top foreign territories for Taken 2. The UK is #1 with $23.4 million followed by South Korea ($14.8 million), France ($14.5 million) and Australia ($13.7 million).
Taken 2's success in China is not surprising considering that action flicks driven by aging stars have been performing quite well there. The Expendables 2 has raked in $53.1 million in China. Looper's total has to be around $20 million by now since its reported total as of October 7 was $16.7 million.
One more major American action films is scheduled to open in China this month: The Bourne Legacy on October 25.
