China Box Office: Action Genre Dominates as ‘Furious 7’ and ‘Wolf Warriors’ Win Big

“Fast & Furious 7” topped the weekly Chinese box office chart with just Sunday’s monster score counting towards its total.

According to data from local box office service Ent Group, the action thriller scored $63.2 million, a figure that is a shade lower than the $68.6 million number that Universal reported and lower than other local estimates which ranged $66-$67 million.

But even the lower figure was enough to obliterate records in China for the biggest opening day and the biggest single day takings. Those landmarks had been set last year by “Transformers: Age of Ultron” last year.

The super score was also some $27 million ahead of the seven day figure achieved by second placed film, the local war actioner “Wolf Warriors” which scored $36.1 million. After 11 days “Wolf Warriors” has an impressive $69.7 million.

Third placed “Let’s Get Married” added $19.19 million over the week to lift its 11 days total to $43.4 million.

“Kingsman: The Secret Service” also kept moving smartly along with an additional $18.9 million to lift its 17 day cumulative to $75.1 million.

Films in lower chart places were in an altogether lesser league.

“The House of Magic” added $3.27 million to produce a 9 day cumulative of $6.33 million.

“Insanity” added $2.61 million for a 10 day total of $7.08 million.

“Two Thumbs Up” added $1.65 million for a 10 day score of $3.28 million.

Nicolas Cage- and Hayden Christiansen-vehicle “Outcast” added $1.36 million in eighth place, for a 10 day total of $3.86 million.

Disney’s “Cinderella” added $1.24 million for a 31 day cumulative of $71.6 million.

And in tenth, local animation “Legend of A Rabbit: Martial of Fire” took $0.61 million for a 51 day total of $3.96 million.
