9. “God of war”, 4.2 million dollars
“God of war”
As mentioned above, in China at the weekend held a dragon boat Festival, as well as the massive premiere of the new “Pirates.” The real Neptune Day lasts three days. It is logical that local filmmakers released their own pirate epic as an alternative to the disney blockbuster.
1557. Pirates for several decades, Rob Eastern borders of China. After pirates captured a large port city Zangan, the city sends staff to help the old commander Yu Tao (Sammo hung) and his younger ambitious colleague Qi Ciguena (Vincent Zhao), confident that the war with the pirates and you need to make your point. This requires only two things — discipline and… a new army.
The film is colorful, large-scale, from one of the veterans of the old Hong Kong. Here only it became clear that cinemas are not in a hurry to put it, giving almost all sessions of the new adventures of Jack Sparrow. The network has begun the excitement: where is the promised government protectionism against Chinese paintings? Ended the conflict with the fact that “Pirates” was released Friday, and all the other local releases on Saturday. They say, we have a long weekend. If the movie is good — not drown.
10. “Sachin”, $ 3.7 million
Another very unexpected movie in the chart. Again, completely unformatted. National semi-documentary biopic of the Indian hero Sachin Tendulkar. The living “God of cricket”.
