During its opening weekend in China, The Predator did not shine, but still made a good $ 20 M. 

Thanks to deadline.com for the info below:

"Fox’s The Predator landed in China this weekend to help prop up what has been an underwhelming performance elsewhere. The Shane Black-directed reboot of the franchise grossed $20M in the Middle Kingdom, coming in at No. 1. There have been precious few big studio releases in China of late which helped it get to the top spot, but it didn’t knock anyone’s socks off. The Douban score is 5.2. (Next weekend, China ramps up on Hollywood fare, including Venom and The Nutcracker And The Four Realms.)

 

The sixquel, in 21 markets this session, grossed $20.7M. It has a reported $88M production cost and comes eight years after 2010’s Predators which did best in a combination of Japan, the UK, Russia, Australia and Germany, finaling with $75M overseas. This one is better, now close to the $100M mark internationally with $98.3M through Sunday. Predatorsdid 59% of its business overseas, The Predator is currently at 66%."

Thanks for the news! I just front paged the news via Variety's coverage, but this is great! Not a huge amount of money but still a good haul!

Thanks, Chris, it's almost as much as it did at home in the opening weekend. One and half month after its worldwide release and in a country where the pirated content is everywhere to be found, it is not such a bad start.

Here below is the Google translation from the chinese website  Mtime  regarding the "Iron Blood Warrior" (aka "The Predator") opening weekend in China. Numbers are in local currency, yuan. Enjoy!

"Iron Blood Warrior" premiered in the mainland last Friday, the first week of box office 136 million, easily won the weekly box office champion.


Prometheus and Alien: Contract, which belonged to the Alien Universe in the series of "Iron Blood Warrior", were released in 2012 and 2017 respectively, with box office of 220 million and 310 million respectively. Looking at the current box office trend, the "Iron Blood Warrior" mainland total box office surpasses "Prometheus" is not a big problem, whether it can catch up with "Alien: Contract" is not suspense.


On the other hand, "Iron Blood Warrior" currently scores only 6.0 points on Time Network. It has a large gap with the scores of "Prometheus", "Dimorphism: Contract" 7.5 points and 7.8 points, and the word-of-mouth performance is average.


When the "Iron Blood Warrior" premiered in North America in September, the first week of the box office was 24.63 million US dollars, about 171 million yuan. The film's in-house film market performance is slightly different than the same period in North America. At present, the "Iron Blood Warrior" North American total box office is 50.9 million US dollars, about 354 million yuan, the "Iron Blood Warrior" mainland results may not be able to catch up with this figure.

Amid worst decline in ticket sales at Chinese box office since September 2014, The Predator grabbed another $10M.

Thanks to Screen Daily for the update.

"Fox’s sci-fi action reboot The Predator fell to second with $10m for $29.4m after 10 days. It is expected to surpass 2012’s Prometheus, but probably not last year’s Alien: Covenant."
