Bespin refugee - January 05, 2018
The Last Jedi finally opened in China on January 5th, but only took 2nd place, behind the Chinese comedy “The Ex-File: The Return of the Exes” in its second week. "Data from China Box Office showed “Jedi” earning $7 million (RMB50.1 million) by 7 p.m. local time. Including midnight screenings and previews, its running total was $8.28 million. That gave it a market share of 27%." In comparison, 2016's “The Force Awakens” brought in $124 million, ranking in 13th place for the year.; and last year's '“Rogue One,” which featured two Chinese stars Donnie Yen and Jiang Wen in significant roles, earned $69.5 million last year.' "The “Star Wars” franchise has never held the same grip on Chinese audiences as in North America and other countries. The first six films did not all get theatrical releases in China, and in some cases only years later, though all have played multiple times on Chinese television"
