China Box Office: ‘Interstellar’ Fends Off ‘Women Who Flirt’

Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” held on to top spot for the week at the Chinese box office, though Hong Kong director Pang Ho-cheung’s comedy drama “Women Who Flirt” seduced many over the weekend.

Interstellar” took $17.7 million from 7,004 screens over the weekend according to Warner Bros. and $23.3 million over the full week, according to local box office tracker Ent Group. Warner reports a cumulative score of $105.6 million, which it says is the highest ever score in China for a Hollywood film shown only in 2D. Ent puts the film’s 19-day cume at $109 million.

“Women” accumulated $13.2 million in three days of release by Huayi Brothers, according to Ent Group. Rentrak puts the figure at $11.5 million in China and four other Asia-Pacific territories. (According to Rentrak “Women” also earned $80,000 in North America, where it is handled by China Lion.)

Third spot was a strong hold for another Hong Kong-Chinese venture, martial arts actioner “Rise of A Legend,” which scored $12.2 million for the week and built its cumulative total to $25.7 million after 10 days.

“The Penguins of Madagascar” dipped from second to fourth spot, but turned in a further $8.22 million. Its 17-day Chinese cumulative score may provide some relief for DreamWorks Animation, as “Penguins” stands at $32.6 million, about a third of the film’s worldwide total to date and half of its score outside North America.

Brad Pitt vehicle “Fury” scored $7.73 million in its second week, for a 10-day cumulative of $15 million.
