China Box Office: ‘Ant-Man’ Holds Steady, ‘Pan’ Flops on Debut

Ant-Man” solidified its place at the top of the Chinese box office. But there was no Middle Kingdom rescue for “Pan” which suffered a dismal opening.

Ant-Man” added $39.1 million over the week to Sunday, according to data from Ent Group, expanding its cumulative total to $81.9 million after 10 days. That put it solidly ahead of “Goodbye Mr. Loser,” which topped the previous week, but lost the weekend to “Ant-Man.”

“Loser” added $22.6 million over the week, to expand its cumulative total to $212 million after 23 days.
European animation, “The Little Prince” held on to third place and added $9.09 million. That lifted its 10 day cumulative to $20.9 million.

Japanese animation Detective Conan: Sunflowers of Inferno,” opened in fourth place with a $9.06 million in three days. That is a strong score, but is unlikely to challenge the performance of “Stand By Me Doraemon” which earlier this year achieved an unprecedented $86.9 million.

Fifth was “Youth Never Returns,” a Chinese romantic comedy, which earned $4.97 million after three days of release plus previews.

After underperforming on North American release and suffering from poor word of mouth, “Pan” opened only in sixth spot. Despite the presence of Hugh Jackman, who has a big following in China, the film managed only $3.45 million in four days.

Minor places were taken by: new release “Where’s The Dragon?” with $2.36 million: holdover “Lost In Hong Kong,” which added $1.41 million for a total of $254 million; James McTeigue’s “Survivor,” which stands on $1.36 million after eight days; and “Romance Out of the Blue,” which earned $940,000 in its opening three days.
