International Numbers [In reply to] Can't Post

Should end somewhere around 661-663 million, which means that the China gross must be at least 35~ million. Shouldn't be a problem, but you never know.

Australia has 23~ million inhabitants and their AUJ gross is $43,728,281. If China, a country with more than 1,3 billion inhabitants, does not match that, then something is seriously messed up.

Yes [In reply to] Can't Post

Japans gross of just 19 million ~ was surprising, but still, China's market is much bigger. The fact that China has 1,2 billion more inhabitants than Japan probably plays a part in that Cool

I just saw that!!! Mad that I cannot see the number of theatres it is still in yet, in the U.S.A. [In reply to] Can't Post

But even if the weekend estimate is off by one or even two hundred thousand (which is highly unlikely) it is almost guarunteed to hit 300 million domestically by the end of next week, especially since for many this will be a Three day weekend, with Monday being the President's day observation.

So the 300 million domestic is all but assured, and a billion worldwide is not unlikely, since China will, in the end, probably only need to pull in about 39 million.

It would be interesting to hear from someone in China, [In reply to] Can't Post

to see what the marketing campaign is like there. You'd think WB (and whoever the distributor is there) would be going all out as it's the last market for AUJ (and to insure that it hits 1 billion).

Journey to the West... [In reply to] Can't Post

Like i wrote in another thread, Journey to the West just posted the biggest 7-day gross ever in China. I'm a little concerned what such strong competition will do to Hobbit.

WB in general [In reply to] Can't Post

It seems like WB did a lot of advance publicity for the film and did the press junkets the first weeks or so it was out but it really seems like they haven't marketed it that well since. Maybe I just don't know enough about how it's done. It just seems like the film has gone pretty much by word of mouth since January alone. Given the negative press reviews quite honestly and the lack of subsequent marketing and the lack of Oscar noms etc I think it's done pretty darned well.

After the first 2-3 weeks the studios seem to move on. Now, if they get a bunch of Oscar nominations you will see an ad or two more but as a whole they move on quickly.

True enough [In reply to] Can't Post

Good point. It does seem to be that way. While I was in LA though there were a bunch of "TV" specials on the various Best Picture nominated films going on (I think in an effort to get Oscar votes I'm sure). There was one on Argo, Lincoln, Life of Pi etc. They were like an hour long too.

But yeah it seems like things move on quickly now.

Damn! It held up so well last weekend, and so many other films with more theatre screens have been underperforming it [In reply to] Can't Post

and making less money. I had hoped that some of those others (like Les Miserables which has made less per theater everyday for a week, but made more on most days overall due to having more screenplay) would get bumbed down, while it held at at least over 700, and hopefully as much as 9. Glad it seemed to do so well, even with the vastly reduced count. It should still be able to pull out at over 300 million.
