Wolf Warrior 2 Decimates Box Office

Wolf Warrior 2 was a far superior movie to the first and feels like a classic Cannon movie from the 80’s. If you get the chance to check it out then you should see it on the big screen ASAP. Audiences in China certainly have as according to Deadline “the Wu Jing-helmed and starring action film is at an estimated $406M (RMB 2.73B) after 10 days of release and based on local reporting. It’s surpassed The Fate Of The Furious ($393M/RMB 2.6B) to become the No. 1 movie in China this year and the No. 2 ever, all combined.

In its debut last session, WW2 tallied $141.8M from Thursday-Sunday, the 2nd biggest start of the year behind F8. At just over $125M for the FSS, it edged out 2016’s The Mermaid for the three-day. That film, which went on to be China’s top movie of all time with $527M (at historical rates), bowed on a Monday during the February blackout last year. It took $152.8M in the first four days and then had an FSS of $122.3M.

Also starring Frank Grillo and with an assist from the Russo brothers who consulted on the pic, Wolf Warrior 2 is the sequel to 2015’s actioner Wolf Warrior which grossed about $87M at home that year. Celina Jade and Hans Zhang also star. Wu’s character has been billed as a sort of Chinese Rambo, and the action sequences are earning praise.”

Expect Wolf Warrior 3 sooner rather than later…
