The Chinese film Detective Chinatown 3 is heading for a world record opening as it looks to smash all opening day box office records seen in any country. The record till date stands as the $157 million of Avengers Endgame in North America and this Detective Chinatown 3 had already collected $100m in advance for day one.

 

 

The figures at 1pm Chinatime stand at around $131 million and that $157 million figure looks a sitting duck foir the film. It is way ahead of the recent big opening days seen in China which are around the $60m mark. Avengers Endgame opened at $66m, Crazy Allen opened at $64m and Avengers Infinity War is $60m. Detective has already more than doubled these opening days and there is more to come.

 

 

The numbers are just phenomenal and if things go well it maybe a $400m plus weekend which has never been seen before anywhere in the world. Avengers Endgame grossed around $357 million over its first weekend.

 

 

There is hardly any interest in India as to what a Chinese film is doing in China but these numbers are of huge importance to Hollywood as we see simultaneous theatrical and PVOD releases for major films. The way the Chinese market is going it to be the biggest market in the world and as seen with Wonder Woman 84 these PVOD releases make a dent in China and you just cant afford to do that with the tentpole Hollywood films as the revenue is just too big.
