It’s clear with all the delays occurring, old titles, when they resurface, will likely push newer ones off the schedule, possibly into 2021. Disney is finely calibrated in their control of key dates to just bump one title to the next calendar slot. According to Disney, it’s still TBD where Marvel’s Black Widow will go next, but it wouldn’t be a shocker if the big pic moves to July 3 and pushes 20th Century Studios’ Free Guy later in the calendar, or to July 24, thus bumping Disney’s Jungle Cruise later, or even November 6, thus sending Marvel’s The Eternals into next year. … [Read more...] about Box Office Fades To Black As Coronavirus Shuts Down 4K North American Theaters Into May: Where The Studios Stand & What’s Next?

In an unprecedented time of bad news for box offices and movie theaters, there’s a sliver of good news to be shared. Variety reports that over the weekend Christopher Nolan’s time-bending film Tenet has passed the $200 million mark at the global box office, despite the pandemic, having grossed $207 million to date. While $200 million at the box office is certainly something to celebrate, Tenet is still struggling stateside, raking in only $6.7 million domestically. Last weekend, Warner Bros. said Tenet grossed $20 million in its debut weekend in the U.S., however per Variety Warner Bros. reportedly fudged the numbers and included weekday preview screenings and the long holiday weekend in that report.

Mulan stars such China-born actors as Jet Li, Gong Li, Donnie Yen and Liu Yifei, and is based on a Chinese folk story. The latter had sparked a #BoycottMulan social media frenzy in summer 2019 when she wrote that she stood with the Hong Kong police who were engaged in an oppressive crackdown on anti-government demonstrators and journalists. Thinking at the time had been that people in China would deliberately go to the movie in order to protest the boycott, and might benefit box office.

The film stars homegrown talent such as Jet Li, Gong Li, Donnie Yen and Liu Yifei, and is based on a Chinese folk story. But, it has been hit with low social scores (7.6 on Maoyan and 4.9 on Douban — the latter slightly up today). And, of course, given the movie released on Disney+ a week ago elsewhere, piracy is an issue. In the wake of several U.S. Senators and Congress reps calling out Disney’s cooperation with elements of the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region’s security and propaganda authorities in the production of the film, there is also a reported blackout on local press covering the release. However, it is not clear how much the recent stirs outside China have affected the box office performance within the market. … [Read more...] about ‘Mulan’ Moola Muted In China With $23.2M Opening – International Box Office

As expected, Sunday was down versus last weekend when the reissue of Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar gave the market a nice jolt. Nevertheless, Sunday was up slightly over Saturday’s final RMB 44.7 ($6.4M) to RMB 45.3M ($6.5M). Leading the charge was DreamWorks/Amblin/Universal’s 1917 with a No. 1 three-day of $5.27M per Maoyan. This lifts the worldwide cume on the Sam Mendes Oscar winner to $381.9M. … [Read more...] about ‘1917’ Leads China Weekend; Korea Has Yet Another Hit With ‘Deliver Us From Evil’ & ‘Greenland’ Makes Hay In France – International Box Office
