    Damn thats great news. Surpassing $400m would a great end to this ride now. Origins would be truely well surpassed and a great return for its relatively smaller outlay.

    This bodes very well for DOFP.If the wolverine can do nearly 260 million overseas then
    putting wolverine with full X-men team has a chance at hitting 300 Million overseas next
    year.

    13.6 Million isnt bad in China considering it's a 4x bigger opening then Thor and 3x bigger than Captain America.

    The wolverine is set in japan, that has to be taken into consideration when it comes to how well it will do in Japan or china

    DOFP also is set in either Japan or china at some point according to singer, whether that will make a difference or not will have to see.

    It should pass Pacific Rim very soon and become the 10th highest...but that'll change once Catching Fire and Thor 2 come out.

    I believe that figure is only for Thursday-Saturday, closer to $18M if you include Sunday.

    DOFP also has giant robots. Looking at how much Pacifc Rim and Transformers 3 made in China its clear they love giant robots.

    As a mainland Chinese with some knowledge about Chinese film market.I think you misunderstanding the Chinese audiences.Transformers are popular in China as it was one of the few foreign cartoons can be released in China.Chinese audiences know Transformers for more than 25years.It has a huge fanbase.
    Pacifc Rim make much just because it is the only hollywood blockblaster release about the same time in China and the US,so no illegal copy,in China.In fact Chinese likes movies such as Titanic most

    Though received many criticisms from media and network.In fact Chinese audiences like 'The Wolverine' very much.Though many of them see through piracy.

    Unlike many people think.Chinese people like this movie's romance storyline most. Tao Okamoto/Mariko Yashida is the main reason .Chinese people likes Tao Okamoto very much(though they don't know her before),They think she is very pretty.They also think Yukio is very cute.Maybe Fox can think about add these two girls into new X-men series

    That's good to know. Didn't realize bootlegs hurt the box office that bad there. Gotta get the China release a bit closer next time.

    Does X Men have a pretty big fan base in China compared to other franchises? Looks like Wolverine did alot better then some of the Marvel solos.

    I think people underrate Transformers a lot.I see a lot of hate for it on the internet.But almost every movie makes so much money.People see movies for being entertained and Michael Bay movies do that.
