Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity” has taken off explosively in the red-hot Chinese market with $9 million in its first two days.

Warner Bros. reported that Tuesday’s opening-day gross of $4.7 million at 5,854 screens  represented its biggest non-holiday launch for that market.

The Sandra Bullock action-drama took in $4.2 million on Wednesday, amounting to 68% of the top films in the market.

“Gravity” grossed $2.2 million from its other international markets Tuesday. The worldwide total has gone past $530 million with the foreign cume topping $290 million while the domestic total has eclipsed $240 million.

France is the top international market for “Gravity” with $33 million, followed by South Korea with $26 million. Japan will be the last market to launch with a Dec. 13 opening.

China was biggest market for Warner’s sci-fier “Pacific Rim” with $111 million, outperforming the U.S. by $10 million.

    I still think Gravity could have crossed $300 mil domestic. It should have been marketed as the year’s biggest ACTION MOVIE for young people as well as adults. Adults were the initial target but then I think they could have got more teens and younger in the theater if they’d emphasized the incredible action thriller aspects. Sandra Bullock is a big enough star to have brought in kids, too.
