Neill Blomkamp’s scifi thriller “Elysium” debuted in China last week to a solid $11.8M after four days, according EntGroup. The Matt Damon starrer has taken in $85.4M domestically and $212M worldwide. Produced for an expensive $115M (and millions more for marketing), it’ll need home video sales to get into the black because studios only get 40-50% of the box office revenue.

The 3D re-release of Steven Spielberg’s “Jurassic Park” topped the chart again in China with another $17M, upping its total to a gigantic $50M. That’s better than the $45M it chomped up from the U.S. back in April. At its current rate, it has a chance to get into the $70M range, which would make it the third highest grossing American film in that region this year.
