CHINA: 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Breaks $50M, China Represents Around 25% of its Overseas Cume.

on June 19, 2013

STID2.jpgBad reviews didn't hurt Switch at the Chinese box office. The Hong Kong action thriller reported a massively successful single-day premiere gross of $8.01 million last week. It was enough to launch the film into third place in last week's weekly grosses chart, just shy of Chinese film American Dreams in China's $8.27 million seven-day gross. Switch kept its momentum in its first full week in release, posting a $32.84 million weekend take to reach a total of $41.04 million in China. American Dreams in China carried over to gross $6.75 million this week, taking its domestic total to $84.24 million.

Switch was miles ahead of the second place film, Star Trek Into Darkness. The sci-fi sequel held its own over its third week in release, adding $14.07 million to reach a $52.89 million cume. China has played a major role in allowing Star Trek Into Darkness to shatter the overseas gross of the franchise's previous installment. The Star Trek sequel has grossed a cume of $201.7 million outside of North America, with the Chinese box office representing around 25% of that figure.
