China Box Office: ‘Interstellar’ on Fast Track

17 November 2014 8:16 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hong Kong — “Interstellar” topped the Chinese box office with big numbers for the Christopher Nolan sci-fi thriller. But honors also went to Johnnie To’s romantic comedy sequel “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart 2,” and to “The Penguins of Madagascar.”

Over its five day Wednesday to Sunday trajectory “Interstellar” clocked up $42.3 million from 7.14 million admissions, according to data from local agency Ent Group.

Warner Bros.’ confirmed figures for the film’s five day run were Rmb 255.05m ($41.7m) from 7,743 screens. The studio said that put the film 144% ahead of director Christopher Nolan’s “Inception,” and 4% ahead of “The Dark Knight Rises.” It was also Warner’s all time highest opening 2D title in China and its second biggest opening weekend of all time behind “Pacific Rim” which played in 3D.

China Box Office Projected At $4.9 Billion In 2014, Official Says

3 November 2014 4:27 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Some estimates earlier this year put 2014’s projected box office in China at about 28B yuan, or around $4.49B. New takings cited by Wang Fenglin, VP of the Chinese Film Producer’s Association, are eyed at 30B yuan or $4.9B. That’s hardly anything to sneeze at, but would fall short of some other government projections which have previously pinpointed 30.7B yuan or $5B, a figure thought to be coveted by the powers that be in China where the film business is highly regulated. Still, according to official state news agency Xinhua, Wang told a gathering on Sunday that China is on track to overtake the U.S. to become the largest film market in the world within three years. Screens and revenue are growing at a rate of 30% annually.

In the first nine months of the year, local movies had 51.4% of the market, even though Transformers: Age Of Extinction is the No. »

Korean TV Hit ‘Full House’ to Be Remade in China

21 October 2014 2:50 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Full House,” the 2004 TV drama that made stars of Korean singer Rain and actress Song Hye-kyo, is to get a Chinese-language remake.

The show is to be produced by Korea’s Group Eight and Asia Media Holding. Korean producer Lee Min-cheol is to direct, while Jeon Gyu-ah is among the Korean producers.

The Chinese show will star Eli, a Mandarin-speaking K-pop star from the Korean six-member music act U-Kiss.

The original show, itself adapted from a romantic graphic novel of the same title, played for 16 episodes on Kbs and presented a testy three-way love triangle involving a screenwriter, an actor and a jilted friend, a home that should not have been sold off and a fake marriage that surprisingly blossomed.

The producers did not announce the female lead who would take the role originally played by Song. Filming is expected to begin in December with broadcast in 2015.

11 January 2014 7:55 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Sosie Bacon may only be 21, but she has a lot going for her. On top of being 2014's Miss Golden Globe, through her father Kevin Bacon, she is connected to nearly everyone in Hollywood - including every other previous Miss Golden Globe, most of whom are also the daughters (or sons) of industry power players. And while some have a connection through their famous parents, others, such as Laura Dern (who happens to have famous parents), are also connected through their own work. Don't believe us?
