‘Star Wars: Force Awakens’ Breaks Records With $53 Million China Debut

10 January 2016 8:23 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens” racked up a record-breaking $53 million after debuting in China on Saturday, according to studio estimates.

The People’s Republic is the last major market to host the latest “Star Wars” adventure. Its opening ranks as the best Saturday or Sunday bow ever in China.

Disney distribution chief Dave Hollis noted that for many Chinese moviegoers, “The Force Awakens” will serve as “the first ‘Star Wars’ film they’ve ever seen.”

Disney has invested heavily in “Star Wars,” plunking down more than $4 billion in 2012 for rights to Lucasfilm, the company behind the franchise. It has plans to not only create a new trilogy of films, but also to launch a series of standalone spinoffs. Given that China is the second-biggest source of ticket sales in the world and is expected to bypass the U.S. as the world’s top film market, success in the country is critical. »

The premium theaters are getting a big boost from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” both in the United States and around the world. Through last weekend, the film has made a massive $152 million from Imax showings globally, making it the second highest-grossing release in the company’s history. It has a very strong chance of overtaking “Avatar” and its $243.3 million global haul once it opens next weekend in China, where it will screen on 268 Imax locations.

Imax and ‘Star Wars’ were tailor-made for each other,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak. “You’re melding the immersiveness of Imax with the thrill of ‘Star Wars.'”

Domestically, Imax plans to show “The Force Awakens” at least until “Deadpool” debuts on Feb. 12, and possibly even beyond that date. The film »
