Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny
“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny,” the sequel to Ang Lee’s Oscar-winning 2000 film, opened in China over the weekend and pulled in $21.3M.

But “Sword of Destiny’s” relatively modest weekend opening is actually a solid, maybe even great figure.
