Clash of the Titans launched on Friday, so 54m yuan is quite good.  However, with earthquake dominating the news this week and national grievance day on Tuesday, its legs could be adversely affected.

Even though it came in second, Go LaLa Go, the fourth directorial feature of JingLei Xu, is actually attracting a lot more conversations, especially within the young white-collar working group.  Ms. Xu is one of the biggest stars in China, and the film has a Sex and the City flavor to it.  Without much direct competition on the horizon, it should have no problem crossing her stated goal of 100m yuan total.

Alice in Wonderland was clearly hurt by the loss of 3D screens to Clash of the Titans and will finish around $33m.

NOTE: just realized How to Train Your Dragon's release has been pushed back to May 14th, the week after Iron Man 2's starting date.
