“The Last Frenzy” holds the theatrical direction

“The Last Frenzy,” a comedy film about the last hurray of a dying man, held the top spot in mainland Chinese theaters for the third weekend of its four weeks of release. Other signs of theater sickness were numerous.

“The Last Frenzy” earned $5.8 million (RMB 41.5 million) between Friday and Sunday, according to data from consulting firm Artisan Gateway. That brought its total to a whisker of the historic $100 million, to $98 million (RMB 696 million) as of release on May 1.

“Twilight of the Warriors: Walled In,” the Soi Cheang-directed crime action film set in Hong Kong's now-demolished Kowloon Walled City, held second place. It earned $4.9 million and has a cumulative total of $86.2 million.

“Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes,” which two weeks ago had been the biggest title before slipping to fourth place, regained one position. In third place, it earned $2.8 million for a total of $25.6 million since its debut in China on May 10.

“Three Old Boys,” a crime action film directed by Gao Qunshu (“Beijing Blues,” “Old Fish”) was the top film of the weekend. Starring Bao Bei'er, Han Geng and Guo Tao, the film grossed $2.7 million (RMB 19.0 million).

(“The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Wars” opened outside the top ten. Other data providers estimate it grossed a fraction over $500,000 in its three days of opening.)

Last weekend's fifth place went to “Hovering Blade” with $1.8 million. The iQiyi-backed revenge-action film is a Chinese adaptation of a crime novel by Japanese author Keigo Higashino about a father on a revenge mission after discovering his school-age daughter has been raped and murdered. After ten days in theaters, it has a cumulative of $10.9 million.

Theatrical momentum, which has made China the world's biggest cinema market so far this year, continues to slow in the flatland between the May Day holiday and China's summer season.
Artisan Gateway calculates that old box office in China has now passed the $3 billion mark and stands at $3.03 billion. The year-to-date result is now 1% below the comparable figure in 2023.
