Aquaman Box Office Collection in China

LOS ANGELES — The box office action over the weekend took place in China, where “Aquaman” collected $94 million in tickets, validating a risky plan by Warner Bros. to release the movie in the Middle Kingdom before anywhere else.

Hollywood has learned a lot about Chinese moviegoers in recent years, but releasing films in the country — the world’s No. 2 market behind the United States — remains a crapshoot for American studios. Warner and other Hollywood companies cannot distribute their own movies in China; they must rely on the state-owned China Film Group. Chinese censors often do not clear American films for distribution until the relative last minute, hindering marketing efforts.

And Chinese audiences have grown more selective about Hollywood movies, at times displaying a new preference for locally made movies like the extravagant “Operation Red Sea,” directed by Dante Lam, known as the Michael Bay of Asia.

The upshot: “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa as the DC Comics superhero and directed by James Wan, could have easily flopped in China, which would have left a stink on the movie ahead of its global rollout. “Aquaman,” which cost an estimated $350 million to make and market worldwide, will arrive in 40 more countries on Friday. Audiences in North America will have the chance to see it starting on Dec. 21.

Warner decided to pursue an early release date for “Aquaman” in China to avoid the country’s traditional end-of-year blackout period for American movies. Opening first in China — where Wan has a following, having directed the smash hit “Furious 7” — would also allow Warner to limit the impact of piracy, which is rampant in the country. Piracy was a major factor in the recent failure of Warner’s “Crazy Rich Asians” at the Chinese box office; the romantic comedy’s release in China came three months after its rollout elsewhere in the world.

Why didn’t Warner just release “Aquaman” this weekend in North America as well?

The two weekends after Thanksgiving in the United States are typically among the slowest moviegoing periods of the year, as holiday shopping and related festivities (school pageants) take priority. There were no new wide-release films over the weekend in North America, where the No. 1 movie was once again “Ralph Breaks the Internet” (Disney), which collected about $16.1 million, for a three week domestic total of $140.9 million, according to Comscore.

Three high-profile prestige films arrived in limited release. “Mary Queen of Scots” (Focus Features), starring Saoirse Ronan in the title role, took in $200,000 at four theaters, for a solid per-theater average of $50,045. The slick “Vox Lux” (Neon), starring Natalie Portman as a pop singer, took in about $162,000 in six theaters, for a per-screen average of $27,000 that was boosted by in-person appearances by Portman.

“Ben Is Back” (Roadside Attractions) received the best reviews of the trio but stumbled out of the gate, collecting about $81,000 at four theaters ($20,200 per screen) — one of the worst debuts ever for Julia Roberts, who stars in the film as a mother of a drug-addicted son, played by Lucas Hedges.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 with 5G support Arrives Market

Last month, Xiaomi launched its Mi Mix 3 as the third iteration of its bezel-less smartphone series. Similar to other flagship products, the device also comes with support for 4G LTE networks. But, the company will be launching a 5G-ready variant of the device in 2019. Best selling Bezel Less Smartphones have become a trending search in these days.

What’s more impressive is that the Mi Mix 3 will be one of the first phones to have 5G support built-in, but that won’t be possible with the current generation Snapdragon 845 chip. This has also ignited a new rumor saying that the new variant will ship with Snapdragon 855 and, from the look of things, it could be true. On the other hand, dual sim facililty has been introduced in iPhone XR, XS and XS Max.

Xiaomi also discreetly showcased the 5G Mi Mix 3 at China Mobile’s annual Partner Conference, in Beijing. As the image shows, the smartphone is accompanied by a summarised spec sheet which shows the newly launched Snapdragon 855 processor.

Moreover, the device will have 10Gb of RAM and will feature a new slidable design, and bezel-less display. It will come equipped with a dual-camera setup which will be housed on the rear panel.

Xiaomi is yet to confirm which markets the Mi Mix 3 with 5G support will hit when launched. It’s worth noting that even though the device has been unveiled, any initial stock will most likely be reserved for China.

Previously, OnePlus stole every major smartphone manufacturer’s thunder when it announced that it would be the first to bring the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor to its smartphone. This came as a huge surprise, as Samsung is usually the one who brings the first wave of Qualcomm’s flagship chips. For the latest updates on trending mobiles, reach to Mippin mobile review site.

Well, that might not be the actual case as the Chinese smartphone maker claims to have made an error while making the announcement.According to a report from Engadget, Chinese versions of the slide deck used by CEO Pete Lau show that the company would be “among the first” smartphone makers to use the new processor.

However, the English version of the slides clearly states that the company would be the “first” to bring the processor. A OnePlus spokesperson later confirmed that it was an error and corrected that OnePlus would be “one of the first” to use the chip, instead of being the first.
