‘The Revenant’ Opens in China With $33 Million, Nears $500 Million Worldwide

Leonardo DiCaprio’s “The Revenant” has opened with an impressive $33 million in its first three days in China, lifting the worldwide total to nearly $500 million.

China is one of the final markets to open the survival drama, which won Oscars for DiCaprio as best actor, Alejandro G. Inarritu as best director and Emmanuel Lubezki for best cinematography. Japan will be the final market to open on April 22.

Bona Film Group announced on Feb. 29 — the day after the Oscars — that it would release “The Revenant” in China with the release jointly handled by Bona, China Film Group and Alpha Pictures. Chinese censors reportedly cut less than two minutes from the frontier epic.

“The Revenant” is still generating decent business for Fox in the U.S. after three months in theaters. It finished the weekend in 10th place with a $1.2 million weekend at 985 locations, pushing the U.S. total to $181.2 million.

It appears that China will become the top foreign market for “The Revenant.” The U.K. total is $32.9 million, followed by Germany with $27.4 million.

In France, “The Revanant” grossed $1.8 million at 609 sites in its fourth weekend, down 41%, for a total of $23.2 million.

The Chinese launch for “The Revenant” pushed the international total to $302 million.
