This Is It repeated on a quiet weekend, as theaters are taking a breather before 2012 invades this week. Not a great hold for TII considering it's 7-day total this time comparing to 5 days the opening week. Look like it will top out at 60m yuan. Astro Boy has done fine, but it was expected due to the character's popularity in China. The domestic breakout of the fall, The Message, became one of the rare Chinese films released outside the busy seasons of winter and summer to cross 200m yuan. The Founding of a Republic, the other domestic notable of the past couple of months, finally dropped out of the chart to finish with 420m yuan, unable to surpass Transformers 2's record of 430m.
