The Movie That Made the Most Money in 2017 Might Come as a Surprise

We might as well just come out and say it: Hollywood made a sh*t ton of money this year. Thanks to the overwhelming success of superhero films like Wonder Woman and Thor: Ragnarok, we have no doubt that movie studio executives were throwing stacks of cash off of their yachts Wolf of Wall Street style each and every day of 2017. That being said, the movie that took home the top honors this year in terms of how much it raked in at the box office might come as a bit of a surprise. Sure, both Thor and Wonder Woman made the top 10, but apparently facing off against Cate Blanchett or the God of War wasn't enough to earn either hero the number one spot. According to Box Office Mojo, Disney's live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast is actually 2017's biggest money maker (at the time of publishing). The stunning,

China’s First English-Speaking Sci-Fi Film 'Lost in the the Pacific' Garners International Pre-Sales

Worldwide Sales Agent, Arclight Films, has been racking up pre-sales with theatrical release intentions for "Lost in the Pacific" the first Chinese 3D Sci-Fi action adventure film in English. The film is currently in its final postproduction phase and Arclight Films anticipates a worldwide release by the end of 2015.

Starring Brandon Routh ("Superman Returns") and Chinese actress Yuqi Zhang ("White Deer Plain"), "Lost in the Pacific" is a 3D Sci-Fi action adventure film helmed by Chinese director Vincent Zhou ("Last Flight"). The story sets in 2020 when a group of international elite passengers embark on an inaugural luxury and transoceanic flight that later gets into a seemingly unexplainable catastrophe.

"Lost in the Pacific" is making major headway to become a top international Chinese film, utilizing far-reaching first-rate global resources, including a multi-award-winning team in front of and behind the camera. Filmed at Malaysia’s Pinewood Studios in the spring of 2015, the film is now finishing its visual effects by UFO Internationals. The film’s sound editing is supervised by Oscar-nominated Kami Asgar and Sean McCormack. Oscar-winner Mark Paterson ("Les Miserables") did the final sound mixing for the film.

During filming, "Lost in the Pacific’s" international cast and its universal themes attracted industry attention across the global film market. Arclight Films, which is handling all rights outside China, started the first round of sales in May during the Cannes Film Market when the film was still in production. Since then, the film has secured a number of deals, including Ram Indo in Vietnam, Viswaas in India, Aqua Pinema in Turkey, Pioneer in Philippines and Pt Prima in Indonesia. Arclight Films will be presenting the film to buyers with never before seen footage at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff).

Releasing a film in China, the United States and across the world can be ambitious for any Chinese film, but Arclight Films is confident in "Lost in the Pacific." Although China’s movies have found their niche market in Mandarin-speaking communities in cities such as Los Angeles, New York and Seattle as more Mainland Chinese films getting released in United States, "Lost in the Pacific" is different from other Chinese films. The film is not only aiming to release in major cities around the world, it’s perfectly positioned for a wider release as it is an English-speaking film and lacks a significant amount of language and cultural barriers than many other Chinese films to date. Having represented many Chinese films including "Special ID," "Wolf Warrior," and "Snow Girl and the Dark Crystal," Clay Epstein, Svp of Sales and Acquisitions for Arclight Films remarked, “'Lost in the Pacific' is extremely marketable and holds significant commercial value due to its international casting, story telling and the quality of production.”

“China’s film industry is witnessing increasing box office sales both at home and overseas,” said Elliot Tong, Head of Asian Sales and Acquisitions for Arclight Films. “A film like 'Lost in the Pacific' has all the makings of an international success story on a global scale.”

Director Vincent Zhou also hopes the film will be able to reach more audience worldwide. “It will be an extraordinary visual and acoustical experience with a unique adventure story for the global audience without language barriers,” he said.

“ Distributors have a wonderful opportunity to offer audiences something fresh and exciting,” continued Tong. “Buyers from all territories see enormous potential in 'Lost in the Pacific.' There’s not only fierce competition between Chinese films and American films but also between different Chinese films with the goal of being released to the American marketplace, and I firmly believe in Vincent Zhou and the his international team highly-acclaimed professional collaborators.”

Arclight Films will be showcasing the film further at the American Film Market in November. 'Lost in the Pacific' could very well be the first Chinese independent Sci-Fi film to receive a same-day release worldwide.

Ten years after Wilson Yip jump-started Donnie Yen's career with Spl (aka Kill Zone), the sequel is upon us, and it is making huge bank in mainland China. Kevin Ma over at FilmBiz Asia has done the maths, and claims that Soi Cheang's sequel has scored "a record opening for a contemporary action film", taking Us$50.6 million since opening on 18 June. A 3D release no doubt helped, but Wu Jing is on a roll after his last effort, Wolf Warrior, pulled in close to Us$100 million earlier this year. However, even with those figures, SPL2 could only place second to Jurassic World over the Chinese bank holiday weekend.A sequel in name only, SPL2: A Time For Consequences stars Tony Jaa, Wu Jing and Max Zhang,...
