Prince of Persia had an excellent hold, partially helped by Children's Day holiday on June 1st. Even with the start of World Cup this weekend, it should be able to reach 150m yuan total ($22m).

The holiday also provided family films a boost, and How to Train Your Dragon is now on track for 100m yuan ($14.6m) and beyond. It could in fact achieve a multiplier of 6 from the opening weekend, a remarkable feat for the market.

Being the first Chinese 3D animated film, Animen received a lot of pre-release buzz, but its start was merely average, especially when one considers 65% of the week's gross came on its opening day, the June 1st holiday. It's likely looking at a 15m yuan total at best.
