"Finding Mr. Right" has turned into a mega blockbuster in China. It's the top film there for the past three weeks. Last week (4/1 - 4/7), it took in another $23.4M, upping its total to a staggering $62.5M. The Tang Wei starring film is now the second highest grossing romance in China.

Finding Mr. Right
In last week's report, I was expecting "Ip Man: Final Fight" to do well enough to at least place second at last week's box office (3/18-3/24), but that didn't happen. It debuted at fifth place with just $1.17M, not even good enough to beat the three-week-old martial arts comedy "Princess and Seven Kung Fu Masters."

A Good Day to Die Hard
"A Good Day to Die Hard" and "Resident Evil: Retribution" debuted in China last week, and the results for the fifth entries of both franchises were solid. Both films have underperformed in the States: "Retribution" grossed $42.3M last fall, about $20M less than the previous installment; "Die Hard 5" will likely finish around $70M, about $60M less than its predecessor.
