2012-07-26 09:29:59        Chinese Films

According to enFilmbase statistics, "The Four" reigned over the mainland boxoffice screenings, enjoying 22% of the market share in terms of total number of screenings, followed by "Painted Skin:The Resurrection" and "Caught in the Web", which took over 15% and 12% respectively. Newly released thriller "Bunshinsaba" took an additional 11% of the weekly screenings. Hollywood animation feature film "Madagascar 3" took 2% in its seventh week of release, with the highest average admissions per screen among all the films released this past week.

The latest entry of 20th Century Fox produced "Ice Age" franchise- "Ice Age: Continental Drift" is opening the same weekend in mainland China along with other three newcomers, including Universal's "The Lorax". The conflicting release dates are likely to cause a fierce battle for Chinese viewers. Adapted from the Dr. Seuss tale, the animated film "The Lorax" will be shown in 3D and IMAX/3D formats in mainland China, while "Ice Age: Continental Drift" is set to be screened on 3D and 3D/DMAX formats here (DMAX is China's own version of Imax technology, which brand is launched to break the monopoly set by Canada-based IMAX Corporation, as this foreign company expanded its business in China rapidly recent years.) Next week the following films are set to hit mainland theaters.
