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. But a lot of time has passed since then. … [Read more...] about ‘Mulan’ Now Eyeing China Bow In $20M-$25M Range After Soft Saturday – International Box Office
Mulan‘s China opening is 23% ahead of Aladdin which finaled at $53M+ in the non-COVID era. Maoyan is now projecting a $41M finish for Mulan in the market. Disney notes that the overall market is down 48% versus last year and that 91% of sites are currently open, but with 50% capacity restrictions.Russia for a $1.8M four-day weekend. Capacity restrictions apply there as well while the market is about 70% open and 31% off compared to 2019 at the same time. Other new opening markets include No. 1s in Ukraine, Hungary and South Africa as well as No. 2 in Poland. In its second weekend of release, Mulan held the top spot in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. In the Middle East, the film dropped by just 9% from its opening weekend.

Tenet’s lackluster showing at the U.S. box office obviously is not entirely Christopher Nolan’s fault, as only 65 - 75% of movie theaters are open at limited capacity in the U.S. with major markets like New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco still closed due to the global pandemic. As we predicted, Tenet, with its budget of $200 million, has a long way to go before it hits the $400 million mark it needs to hit to break even. Although it’s struggling financially, Tenet is faring better than Disney’s live action Mulan which similarly boasts a $200 million budget to Tenet but has only grossed $37.6 million globally as the #BoycottMulan movement continues to grow in Asia. Unlike Warner Bros., Disney made the decision to skip the U.S. box office altogether, making Mulan available to rent on Disney+ streaming service for $30 dollars. It seems clear that it’s still a tough moment to release your $200 million film. You have to imagine Nolan and his execs at … [Read more...] about Rakes In $200 Million at the Global Box Office, Struggles Domestically
Interstellar, for its part, rode from Sunday through Thursday at No. 1, and has cumed $8.24M in the re-release. As we wrote yesterday, Nolan’s Inception is having its 10th anniversary resissue in China on August 28, followed by his Tenet, the first major new tentpole of 2020 since the pandemic began. Tenet goes on September 4 in the Middle Kingdom after beginning offshore rollout on August 26. Coronavirus-imposed capacity and screening limits are still likely to be in place in China, though perhaps somewhat less stringently. Tenet was shot with IMAX cameras and almost all IMAX screens there are expected to be open by the time the movie hits theaters. This is good news. … [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
