"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.

This weekend’s box office numbers played out pretty predictably, according to the ratings and predicted grosses of the films—this proved to be great news for some of last week’s releases, and not-so-great news for others. The Croods topped the charts this weekend, earning a hefty sum of $44.7 million; when it comes down to what kind of movie earns the most in the box office, it seems that you can’t beat a decent family film.

This weekend’s box office turnout yielded a bit of a surprise for this last week’s new releases—whether or not this was a good surprise certainly depends on who you ask. What didn’t come as a surprise was the continued success of Oz: The Great and Powerful, which earned another $42.2 million over the weekend, for a tidy sum of $145 million so far.

As one might expect, Oz managed to ascend the box office charts in a big way, while its much less famous counterpart in last week’s releases didn’t quite pull in as much as was predicted. Oz: The Great and Powerful made the most over the weekend by far, earning just over the top of its predicted range of revenues at $80.2 million.
bleedingcool.com – The stats are in and it’s official: Oz The Great and Powerful is a smash hit. I expect it’s really rather likely that Disney will push their sequel plans all the way to fruition but when they do, will they still have director Sam Raimi on side? Well, that’s looking much less likely. 2 years 37 weeks ago via donnieyen
