Business for local films exploded during China’s Labour Day holiday, which started last Thursday (May 1st) and ended on Saturday (May 3rd).

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
The sole new release this weekend kicked summer off in a big way, topping the charts with earnings that fulfilled fully the generous projected range it was given. Despite the misgivings of old and new fans alike, The Amazing Spiderman 2 proved that it has enough merit to rival the old trilogy, at least in terms of earnings.

Donnie Yen in "The Iceman 3D"
Another troubled Donnie Yen production hit theaters in China last week. A remake of Yuen Biao’s 1989 minor hit “The Iceman Cometh,” the $33M update, retitled “The Iceman 3D,” went way over budget and had to be split up into two films in order to recoup its investment.

The Other Woman
After several weeks full of new releases doing their best to dethrone Marvel’s latest film, Captain America finally relinquished its spot atop the charts to one of the new releases. It was kind of a lukewarm weekend for everyone involved, however. Despite a plot heavily geared toward a female audience, The Other Woman pulled in the highest earnings this weekend, making well above its projected range at $24.7 million.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Marvel’s releases always have impressive box office longevity, and their latest film is no exception. Despite a hoard of new releases flooding the box office vying for a decent weekend gross, the latest Marvel film remains at the top (although, it probably owes a little to the fact that three of the four new releases failed to get a positive consensus from critics).

Captian America: The Winter Soldier
With the titanic numbers that the latest Marvel film has been pulling in for the last week, no one expected any of the new releases to beat it to the top of the box office; so, it was no surprise when this did not happen. What was surprising was how close one of the new releases—which was rated somewhat mediocrely—came to doing so.

New in Theaters: 'Rio 2,' 'Oculus,' 'Draft Day'

5:22 PM 4/11/2014 by Logan Falk
To contrast last week’s single release, this weekend brings a sizeable batch of new releases, with a fairly large variety of genre, plot, and quality. That being said, this weekend’s fare is still a great deal better (or at least better-rated) than the vast majority of the last several weeks’ worth of mediocre films.

Critics Consensus: Rio 2 Fails to Take Flight – This week at the movies, we've got Brazilian birds (Rio 2, with voice performances by Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg), a pigskin professional (Draft Day, starring Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner), and a malevolent mirror (Oculus, starring Katee Sackhoff and 8 years 24 weeks ago via brucelee
