Three Idiots Grosses $1.15 Million In China

Three Idiots grossed $1.15 million in its first four days of release in China. The figure is a huge number but the release was also huge with over 2,800 shows per day over the first four days and 800 prints in play.

It is the first Hindi film to get such a big release in China so there is nothing to compare with. Over the four days there was 11,224 shows with 240,274 admissions.

My Name Is Khan was released in China in November 2010 but on a much smaller scale and did not do well enough to get a wider release. It will be the trending that will tell if Three Idiots has done well and was worth such a big release.

The $1.15 million collected in China takes the Three Idiots total overseas gross on par with My Name Is Khan which at around $22 million which is the highest grossing film overseas and Three Idiots will go ahead with the additional income to crom from China. But My Name Is Khan is due a Hong Kong release early next year which could add to its numbers as well.

    Ok so thats BOI article.

    They copied data from other internet sources[as they dnt have thr own source in tht region]
    Same goes to HK region,they dnt have any source,
    they dnt seem to know about 3I HK release,

    China ka sapna bhi ab aaya hai

    11220 shows with 240270 admissions- that is like 20 people per show on an average- for a standard 300 seat audi that is like 7 percent occupancy for the weekend.

    Sites like BOI fail to convincingly address the question of profitability and costs. Like in this case, would it have been profitable for the producers to release the film in China when it saw just 7-10 percent occupancy for the weekend?

    What was the cost of releasing it and promoting it in China?

    Is it just a race to see the higher revenue between MNIK and 3 Idiots?

    if delight 11 days number are correct, then afte an average opening, 3 idiots is below average in china.
    800-900 prints is very big, and for a market like china , a 50cr was expected ( especially after its hong kong run ).
    but maybe its still not over yet, let see it few coming days

    Only chance for an Indian movie to do well with such high number of prints is to sustain.

    Last week 2 biggies released in Mainland China,so collections were expected to drop , next 2-3 weeks ‘ll tell if 800-900 print release is justified or not.

    For me anything under 40 crore lifetime is under-performance.

    [And this BOI guys are copycat,copied pre-2003 data from ibos without giving any credit and now they are copying data from internet articles.]

    Everything is written,MNIK was disaster and 3I trending is yet to be seen,

    So control your sadness for 3I ,
    and if its urgent or u r in hurry to be sad, be sad for MNIK for now,

    who knows u might get a chance for 3I too[if it dnt trend]

    delight i tought my english is the worst of all ngians but i think you beat me.

    “My Name Is Khan was released in China in November 2010 but on a much smaller scale and did not do well enough to get a wider release.]”

    and this what you understand of this

    “Everything is written,MNIK was disaster”

    thanx for this angreji lesson, now i know that
    not do well enough mean disaster

    Delight it was bound to drop as some huge Chinese movies wer gonna release n the most imp reason for it’s drop is pirated CD’s I think .. Nw I doubt even if it ll to 30cr as I had predicted.. After dismal show in it’s 2nd week I think 3I’s print ll b reduced by a great no ..

  10. Prateek
    December 19, 2011 at 11:10 PM

    BTW the gud news is dat MNIK is gonna release in HK early next year.. I find here BOI commentary more favorable to MNIK than 3I’s :-) according to BOI Mink n 3I’s are same at this point i.e after 4 days china release :-)

  11. Prateek
    December 19, 2011 at 11:12 PM

    So even if 3I’s overtakes MNIk by 10-15 cr MNIK has d chances of beating it yet again after HK release and gaining d No1 spot again :-)

  12. shezad
    December 20, 2011 at 12:12 AM

    no prateek now it will be neraly impossible for mnik to retake top earning overseas position to 3 idiots. even with hk release.
    3 idiots is heading for a 25m$ and mnik at max will do 23m$.

    as the drop is concerned, 3 diots havent drop a lot in fact. the probleme is th opening wasnt big
    1.2 opening week end( 4 days) and 0.7 second week (7days)

    3 Idiots was released in Mainland China under the flat fee scheme.

    Every year China allows 20 Big HW movies to be released under revenue sharing and another 20-30 smaller movies under the flat fee scheme.

    Flat Fee means the distributor paid a lump sum to VVC productions to release the movie there and there wont be any sharing of revenue based on performance.

    This week 2 major movies released there and the shows are already cut into half from 800 prints to around 400+.

    The movie may end up doing 2.5 Million USD there and that will be below avg kind of performance i think though in the historical prespective its still some kind of success for a BW movie releasing in China.

    I think the movie connected more with the urbane population like in Hong Kong and Taiwan and may be some bigger cities of Mainland China and may not be doing great with the masses of Mainland.

    Also chances are less for the movie to have very strong legs as it was wide release…

    Yes, couple of major movies like Flowers of War and The Flying swords 3D released this weekend but we cant expect them to give somekind of specialised release timing for foreign movies in their homeland.(just imagine how HW movies are released here in India, sometimes sandwiched between to biggies and so on.)

    Leading Chinese Boxoffice Analyst Jia Lui has this to say about 3 Idiots :

    Adapted by the Indian bestseller Indian comedy “Three silly row Bollywood” rushing files comedy, the film about three friends in college to pursue a dream, to achieve self-growth story. ???????????????????????????????? In the history of Indian refresh the highest grossing film, released four days that broke one hundred million yuan at the box office of Rs. ???????????????????????????,????????????????????????????????????????????????????? Crazy funny videos the way, humorously explores the spoon, the campus suicide, the gap between rich and poor divide, not a sound health care system and other deep-seated social problems, the professional critics overseas websites and forums, users get a highly and the blitz. ?????????????????160?????????????????????????740???????24?????????????? On the video quality can be quite high, but the film as long as 160 minutes of theater row mapping causes some difficulties, the national box office opening weekend four days of about 7.4 million, nearly 24 million viewers, imported films ranked fifth. ????????????????????????? Gathered in the new film, the highly competitive market end of the year, this result can be considered a success

    She also said,

    “Three Bollywood silly row” does not receive the hot Indian effect, about 7.4 million opening weekend

    BTW , MNIK is reportedly releasing lot wider in HK compared to 3 Idiots, so even if its not as much liked it can get a big opening there and do atleast 1 million USD.

    Lets see.

    Is der possibility of 3I’s releasing in other countries ???

    December 20, 2011 at 2:29 AM

    Prateek i dont think at this point it matters which one is ahead, just the fact is both 3 Idiots and MNIK had topical subjects which were extremely successfull with overseas audience for a variety of reasons.

    It will be hard for other movies to get close to them…
