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."

Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons
In my previous Chinese box office report, I wrote that Stephen Chow's "Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons" would get close, but not beat "Lost in Thailand" for the record of highest-grossing Chinese film of all time. Huayi Brothers, the company behind "Journey to the West," apparently agrees with me.

Chinese Hit Comedy 'Lost in Thailand' Generating Mixed Returns for Thai Economy

feedproxy.google.com – The Chinese box-office champion pulled in a tepid $88,000 in its opening weekend in Thailand, but the feel-good movie is already inspiring scores of cash-carrying Chinese travelers to visit the tourism-dependent country. 9 years 27 weeks ago via jetli

Chinese Blockbuster 'Lost in Thailand' Fizzles in U.S. Debut

Lost in Thailand
thewrap.com – It doesn't look like "Lost in Thailand," China's biggest domestic hit ever, will be breaking any box office records in the U.S. Distributor AMC estimated Sunday that the broad comedy will gross about $29,143 from 35 locations in its first weekend of release in North America. That's a soft $833 per-screen average. 9 years 27 weeks ago via donnieyen

Chinese Box Office: "Skyfall" Up to Astounding $51M; "The Grandmaster" at $45M

Sam Mendes’ “Skyfall” starring Daniel Craig opened a couple weeks ago in China and riveted audiences to the tune of $35M in the first week and $16M in the second, for a total of $51M so far. It’s a huge hit in China, unless, like this writer, your views got distorted by the recent records broken by “Lost in Thailand” and “Chinese Zodiac.”

The Grandmaster
Wong Kar-Wai’s “The Grandmaster” topped the charts for another week with $13.7M, upping its total to a spectacular $39.5M after two weeks. It’s now the top earning Ip Man film in China, beating the $32M gross of the Donnie Yen-starring “Ip Man 2.” That’s pretty impressive, considering Yen’s films were the ones that popularized the martial arts master who taught Bruce Lee.

Zhang Ziyi in "The Grandmaster"
With its huge opening, “The Grandmaster” is the first box office hit of Wong Kar-Wai’s career. It’s good to see the internationally acclaimed director finally getting his due at the box office.

Chinese Box Office: "Chinese Zodiac" Helicopter-Kicks "Lost in Thailand" Off the Top Spot

Jackie Chan in "Chinese Zodiac"
In a surprise last week at the box office in China, Jackie Chan’s “Chinese Zodiac” finally dislodged Zheng Xu’s “Lost in Thailand” from the top spot. The two films grossed $37.3M and $31.8M, respectively, for the week ending on January 6th. I didn’t think this would ever happen because “Lost in Thailand” had beaten “Chinese Zodiac” for two consecutive weeks prior to this.

Lost in Thailand
Like last year at the box office in China, there are only room for two big event films during the Christmas and New Year holidays. In 2011, Zhang Yimou’s “The Flowers of War” (Christian Bale) and Tsui Hark’s “The Flying Swords of Dragon Gate” (Jet Li) were the two dominant films, claiming the top two spots for weeks.
