Beijing, the present day. Popular TV personality Da Peng is invited by gangster businessman Wang Hai to make a film in which he will invest. Wang insists that Da Peng's co-star is TV drama actress Du Xiaoxiao. However, after a nightclub scandal involving Da Peng goes viral, he's blackballed by a powerful internet executive and finds himself unable to attract any male co-star. Wang also wants his investment back. Da Peng decides to make his own movie on the cheap, using a script he has about an alien, A Li, who arrives on Earth and has various adventures as a superhero. A paparazzo, Hu Lai, joins the production group, as well as an aspiring actor, Ma Tao, and Da Peng persuades Xiaoxiao to play Xiao Yi, the owner of a jianbing stall who becomes brainwashed by the alien and is transformed into his sidekick, super heroine Red Rose. In order to film some star names on the cheap, Da Peng and his team hijack Hong Kong actress Sandra Ng when she's jogging outside her hotel and try to stage a rape-and-rescue scene around her. When that fails, they try the same thing with another Hong King film-maker, Eric Tsang. After trying to get more free help from veteran Beijing Film Studio actor Wei Yunxiang, fight choreographer Yue Yunpeng and actress Liu Yan, Da Peng finally runs out of money and starts working as a host at funerals. His career looks at a dead end.

International Box Office: Rogue Nation Goes International

August 6th, 2015

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation opened in first place on the international chart with $64.5 million in 41 markets. Its biggest opening by far came in South Korea, where it made $13.80 million on 1,202 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $16.90 million. That total opening was more than twice the film's second biggest opening, $8.31 million in 572 theaters in the U.K. The film also had major market openings in Mexico ($4.17 million) and in Australia ($3.68 million). The film has yet to open in most major markets, including Germany, Russia, Spain, and Japan. The film opens in all four this weekend, so it should strong on the international chart. More...

International Box Office: Monster Hunt Chomps Chinese Record Book

July 29th, 2015

Monster Hunt

Monster Hunt remained in first place on the international chart with $46 million over the weekend for a two-week total of $225 million. The film again dominated its home market (China) earning $113.16 million over the full week for a running tally of $221.41 million after eleven days of release. It became the biggest Chinese film in its native market and the third biggest film of all time, behind Transformers: Age of Extinction and the current record holder, Furious 7. More...

Weekend Estimates: Ant-Man Defeats Poor Pixels

July 26th, 2015


Three new wide releases and three returning movies that are still pulling in good crowds will produce a box office chart with no knock-out winner this weekend. That’s in large part thanks to a disappointing debut from Pixels. The Adam Sandler/Kevin James-comedy/adventure-Ghostbusters/wannabe will earn about $24 million this weekend, according to Sony’s Sunday estimate. That puts it in danger of not even earning back its marketing budget domestically, let alone starting to recover the $88 million production budget. It also means that Ant-Man will top the charts for a second weekend. More...

Limited and VOD Releases: Exorcising Your Options

July 24th, 2015

The Vatican Tapes

Every once and a while, I feel the need to apologize for the pun in the headline. This is one of those weeks. It is also one of those weeks where I can't find a limited release that has a good chance at earning some mainstream success. Unexpected is the biggest release, but its reviews suggest it will do better on Video on Demand than in theaters. There are a few documentaries that might do well on the art house circuit, but it is unlikely that any have what it takes to find mainstream success. More...

International Box Office: Monster Hunt is Monster Hit

July 23rd, 2015

Monster Hunt

It is a special week on the international chart, as we have an international film in first place. Monster Hunt earned first place in China with an estimated $72 million over the weekend and a total opening of $107.58 million. (This includes less than $1 million in early previews.) This movie is a romantic comedy, of sorts, set in a world of CGI monsters. This is the kind of film that could have appeal in many markets outside of the usual markets Chinese films play in. Additionally, this is the kind of opening that will make distributors here interested in obtaining the rights. It is too soon to tell if it will have a global run, but it will be worth keeping an eye on. More...
