Via Yahoo, we finally have some more details on how The Hunger Games did, opening in China last weekend.
It’s been a while coming, but the international smash hit The Hunger Games has finally made its mark on China, debuting over the past week at number one on the box office chart.
The thriller grossed an estimated 66.1 million yuan (8.2 million euros) [10.3 million USD] over its first week, according to Ent Group, not a flash number by any standards but still enough to keep its rivals at bay.
As has been the trend all year so far, Hollywood films continued to dominate the charts, with Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted taking an estimated 56 million yuan (seven million euros) for second place and a 10-day total of 113.2 million yuan (14 million euros), while Men In Black 3 was third with 49.2 million yuan (six million euros) for takings now of just below 477.4 million yuan (59.1 million euros) from a month in cinemas.
