    Oh totally.

    In fact the Chinese market is changing what is happening in US movie making. Because they can make so much money from the Chinese market for certain types of movies, they're pumping them out like crazy.

    Fast and Furious and Comic hero movies especially.

    Well, the Fast and Furious movies were making a bunch of money even without China, I think. I don't understand why, but I think that's the case. :p But yes, China seems to love those movies.

    Yes of course.

    Movies for people who think cars are an extension of their manhood.

    Fast and the Furious Franchise Box Office History - The Numbers

    Number 1 made $144 million at home and $206 million worldwide. So clearly it was more profitable at home.

    Number 8 made $225 million at home and $1.2 billion worldwide.

    So clearly it's gone from 75% domestic to 20% domestic and yet the 20% is larger than the 75%

    Furious 7 (2015) - International Box Office Results - Box Office Mojo

    China it made $390 million. More than it made in the US.

    The film cost more to make that it made in the US, because they know it'll go down well in China.

    China's opening weekend beat every other country's total earnings except the US.

    I think the majority of people running out to see DP 2 are people that already seen A3 like me. At this pace (as of Wed $860 bil), A3 should be over the $1 bil mark by Friday. A3 should easily pull in $600 bil worldwide this weekend. Then in week 3 it opens in China.

    What makes you think the second weekend will easily reach $600 million? The movie made just a bit over $600 million opening weekend ($630 million about), you think it will equal those numbers in week 2? That would be unprecedented for a blockbuster movie, so far as I know.

    A big showing in China might put it over $2 billion in the end. I can't think it will get close to $600 million in the second weekend, though.

    Avengers dropped 56% domestically in its second weekend. That's not a bad drop off, especially considering how much it made in the first weekend. It was the second most money ever made in weekend 2 at $112 million, behind The Force Awakens.

    "Avengers" Nabs $112M Second Weekend - Dark Horizons

    Fastest ever to $1 billion, without China. Currently at $1.164 billion. I'm still feeling iffy about it getting to $2 billion, but with China still to come, we'll see.

    So I thought I'd take a look at how long Avatar was out, to see if that was part of the reason it was able to make so much money. Wow, it was out for 34 weeks. That seems like an eternity by today's movie standards. Titanic was worse, having been in theaters for 41 weeks. By comparison, The Force Awakens, which is #3 all-time in earnings, was only out for 24 weeks.

    Titanic made another $20.5 million in weeks 25-41 domestically. I can't track the foreign totals by week on box office mojo. Avatar made only about $650,000 in weeks 25-34 domestically.

    I wish I could see the weekly foreign box office numbers. I'd like to know how much of Titanic's and Avatar's revenue came after the 24 week mark.

    It is at $1.2 Bil worldwide as of Monday. $1.5 Bil is not out of the question, but a stretch by Friday.

    This weekend should also be a massive one. No real competition and opening in China where they are seeing record sales.

    China Box Office: 'Avengers: Infinity War' Crushes Presales Records

    I say it hits $1.4 Bil by Friday and add amount $400 mil over the weekend.

    My guess is it wimpers passed Force Awakens and falls short of Titanic
