“Ip Man 3” just ended “The Mermaid’s” three-week reign atop the box office in China on Friday with a $24.3M opening, which includes $1M from midnight screenings. Depending on word-of-mouth and how front-loaded the martial arts film is, it’s looking at a huge $70M opening for the entire three-day weekend. “Ip Man 3” is directed by Wilson Yip, stars Donnie Yen, features Mike Tyson as a villain, and has Yuen Woo-Ping choreographing the film’s many outstanding fight scenes.

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Morgan Freeman stares down the face of evil in 'London Has Fallen' The best job security for any movies president is to have Morgan Freeman as vice president. Seriously, no evildoer would opt to deal with the man who stared down an extinction-level event (Deep Impact), who soothed racial tensions at a crucial moment in history (Invictus), and...
