China Box Office: ‘Loser’ Beats ‘Lost In Hong Kong’ in Post-Holiday Weekend

Comedy, “Goodbye Mr. Loser” powered to the top of the Chinese box office in its second week of release.

The film scored $99.8 million in the week to Sunday (Oct. 11). That helped it leap from third place and overtake the “Lost in Hong Kong” juggernaut, which is slowing sharply. In its opening five days “Loser” scored $40.5 million. Its cumulative score after 12 days is $142 million, according to data from Ent Group.

“Lost” slipped 64% in its third week, recording $35 million in the week to Sunday, compared with $102 million the previous frame. After 17 days it stands on a huge $245 million, putting it on course to be the fourth biggest film of all time in China, behind “Transformers 4.”

“Chronicles of the Ghostly Tribe” slipped from second to third place in its second week, recording $30.5 million, down from $66.4 million. It has a 12 days cumulative total of $100 million.

Disney animation, “Inside Out” was the only significant new release of the post-holiday week in which Saturday was considered a working day, compensating for the days off in the previous week. “Inside Out” was given a Tuesday (Oct. 6) and it grossed only a modest $12.3 million in the six days to Sunday.

Chinese-made thriller “Saving Mr Wu” took $11.8 million, a strong hold, only 9% down, to extend its total to $26.8 million after 12 days.

Beyond the top five, all other titles were in significantly lower league.

Holdover, “Minions” earned $2.63 million. That compared to $6.24 million the previous week and pushed its cumulative to $68.5 million after 29 days. “Balala The Fairies – Princess Camellia” grossed $2.22 million for an 11 day total of $5.37 million. Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” added $1.01 million, extending its 34 day cumulative to $137 million. “The Third Way of Love” took $580,000 for a cumulative of $11.3 million after 17 days. And, fantasy “The Mirror” added $190,000 for a 17 day score of $1.54 million.
