Star Trek Into Darkness Tops Box Office In China

Star Trek Into Darkness finally landed in China last week, taking in a solid $27 million in ticket sales, China Film News reported today (Tuesday). The Paramount film knocked American Dreams in China, a Chinese language film about a group of young entrepreneurs who start up an English-language training service, out of first place, which it had held during the previous two weeks. Nevertheless American Dreams, which was directed by Peter Chan, wound up with a respectable $18.2 million, down 47 percent from the previous week. Meanwhile, Chinese distributors said today that Warner Bros.' Man of Steel will be released on the mainland on June 20, the only Hollywood film permitted to debut during the month of June. However, Chinese regulators have rejected Universal's zombie movie World War Z, starring Brad Pitt, TheWrap.com reported on Monday.
