“Ip Man 3” opened huge in China last weekend, grossing $72M -- the biggest opening ever for a martial arts film (as its distributor proclaimed). Shows were sold out in theaters across the middle kingdom.

Why 'Mud' Is the Best Southern Film in Years – With grosses approaching $20 million and still going strong, the breakout box-office success of Jeff Nichols' "Mud" seems to have surprised many people. But reading The Wrap's report that the film "has played very strongly in the South" surprised me not at all, because "Mud" is the best Southern film I’ve seen in ages. 9 years 25 weeks ago via jackiechan

Jackie Chan used to be the most beloved actor in Hong Kong, his birth place. It was almost a yearly ritual for the Hong Kong people to bring their entire family to watch his latest action comedy during Chinese New Year (or whenever one of his films opened). Looking at the top 100 highest grossing films of all time in Hong Kong was almost like looking at his filmography, since his films dominated the charts.

The overall box office results might be mired in one of the worst end-of-summer slumps in years, but for at least one studio, 2012 has been a year to remember -- for all the right reasons.

Box office report: 'The Possession' leads the worst weekend in over a decade – Lionsgate’s $14 million horror entry The Possession once again topped the chart with $9.5 million. The film, which earned a “B” CinemaScore grade last week, enjoyed a better than expected hold (it dropped 46 percent) — especially since its debut results were inflated by it bowing on a holiday weekend.

The Hit Phenomenon?: Japanese Scientists Create Model To Predict Box-Office Success – Japanese scientists have divined a mathematical model for what they call “The Hit Phenomenon.” By calculating the advertising budget of a film before it’s released, along with the amount of time a campaign runs and its word of mouth quotient on social media, a team from Tottori University worked to predict the success of such films as Spider-Man 3 and Avatar and then compared their findings to actual box office. 10 years 25 weeks ago via jackiechan

'Cars 2' on Track to Become Pixar’s Worst Box Office Performance Since 1998 – Poor Mater and McQueen: After a 35% Rotten Tomatoes score gave Cars 2 the unhappy distinction of becoming the worst-reviewed Pixar movie of all time, it is now tracking to earn Pixar’s lowest domestic gross since 1998′s A Bug’s Life. Read on after the jump. Though Cars 2 initially got off to a strong start, making $66 million in its first weekend, it’s been losing audiences faster than Pixar movies usually do. 11 years 20 weeks ago via jetli

Harry Potter is already a smash — and it hasn’t even opened yet – Some $25 million in advance ticket sales. Over 5,000 showings of the bloody thing (literally) already sold out. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” is already an opening weekend phenomenon. I’d love to see it unseat”Transformers” in the record books. It’s 3D, and the movies, though consistent performers, seemed to plateau some years ago, in terms of box office. 11 years 21 weeks ago via brucelee

Box office update: 'Rio' tops Friday with $10.2 mil, 'Scream 4' underwhelms with $8 mil – Each time Hollywood appears ready to break out of its 2011 slump, it doesn’t.
