China Box Office: ‘Tiger Mountain’ Takes Second Weekend

HONG KONG – War-adventure film “The Taking of Tiger Mountain” held on to top spot at the Chinese box office for the second week, comfortably beating a raft of local competition and opener “Night At The Museum 3.”

The 3D actioner, directed by Tsui Hark and distributed by Bona Film Group, added $58.3 million in its second week, compared with $51.9 million in its six day opening frame. That gave it a 13 day cumulative score of $110 million, according to Chinese box office monitor Ent Group.

Second placed “Love on the Cloud” added $19 million for Huayi Bros. Media in its second week, for a 12 day cumulative of $42.2 million. Third placed “One Hundred Thousand Bad Jokes” took $13.3 million for Wanda Media in its five day Wednesday to Sunday debut.

Jiang Wen’s “Gone With The Bullets” added $6.54 million in fourth place on its third week of release. That put it on a cumulative total of $$81.3 million, a major score, but far below initial expectations.

“Night At The Museum: Secret of the Tomb” became the first Hollywood studio movie to be released in 2015, and the first after the December blackout designed to boost Chinese titles at the peak cinema-going period. Released on Sunday, and only in the chart for a single day, it earned $4.6 million.
