Strong China opening for ‘Detective Dee’ prequel

September 30th, 2013 - Graham Eley

Tsui Hark’s ‘Young Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea Dragon’, starring Mark Chao and Carina Lau, breathed new life into the Chinese box office, taking an impressive $17m over the weekend.  It is the prequel to the veteran filmmaker’s earlier Detective Dee success ‘Mystery of the Phantom Flame’ but Andy Lau did not return from the original.  The action thriller seems set to hit the $100m mark in China before the end of its run.

 

It was an otherwise quiet weekend internationally.  ‘Road Runner’, starring Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck, landed in 43 markets ahead of its North American release and grossed $11.9m from 4,042 screens to be the second best performer.

 

Meanwhile, ‘The Smurfs 2’, which is still active in 79 markets, came in third after grossing a further $8.3m to cross the $250m milestone.prozac 30 mg dosebuy fluoxetine 20 mg cost of fluoxetinefluoxetine pronounce side effects of fluoxetine hcl 20 mgfluoxetine long term effects apo-fluoxetine 10 mg
