    Looking at the American films released in China (link), I feel like The Wolverine should at least get 20 to 30 million. After Earth, A Good Day to Die Hard earned 30 million plus, while White House Down and Cloud Atlas earned more than $25 million.

    Then at least 10 million in Japan. A Good Day to Die Hard surprisingly earned $21 million in Japan, so if things are really looking good for The Wolverine, it should get more than that.

    With a Japan release this week and the (hopefully true) China release, that should be enough to put the movie well over the $400 million WW mark :D

    It should!

    I think with the upcoming release in Japan/China, the film can still get at least 39 million more!

    Thanks for the news

    I would rather watch X-Men Origins:Wolverine over IM 3.Granted,Wolverine 1 wasn't great but it had some amazing moments.

    Well if that's the case, I don't think $2.6 millio is Japan's opening numbers. Boxofficemojo.com has the international numbers jumpingby roughly $3 million...without listing Japan's opening numbers.

    I'm pretty sure, so far, that's the international number round-up...without Japan.

    BOM updates overall total for the foreign numbers but for individual countries it comes later. They always do this. So most likely the foreign total for this weekend includes Japan they just don't have the breakdown for it yet.

    My thoughts too. Hoping for a decent word-of-mouth, perhaps the film will linger on enough to get some good numbers. It wasn't a huge hit anywhere, was it? It just...survived and endured nicely.

    a 2.6 million opening in Japan would be a major disappointment especially considering it's set in Japan, Has famous Japanese actors and is a big(ish) budget Hollywood Blockbuster with 3D.

    I hope that is incorrect. If it is even kind of close, we can kiss 400 million worldwide goodbye.

    Either way though, It has already over tripled its Budget worldwide, Is the highest Grossing X-Men film overseas and has already made all its money back and is already profitting not counting product placement marketing or future DVD/Bluray sells, rentals, downloads, ppv or selling TV rights.

    This movie was a very profitable indeavor.

    The first GI Joe got a sequel from a 300million wwgross on a 175m budget.

    And this movie is definitely more profitable (in theaters) than the last 3 X-Men films. It didnt do well in America but was a profitable venture.
