Even though it's set in China and co-produced by the distributor China Film Group, The Karate Kid did not have a strong start like it had in the U.S. It began the journey on Tuesday, so the overall multiplier from the opening week will be small, making 60m yuan ($8.8m) a more realistic target of where it could end up.

Toy Story 3's hold is somewhat disappointing too considering the great word-of-mouth, the holding power of 3D screens, and the fact that this is a 7-day vs. 5-day comparison (although the opening week did include one holiday). I was hoping for another 30m yuan week. Now it may not reach 100m yuan ($14.7m), and that would be a shame.

Both Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and Robin Hood are winding down toward the end of their releases and should finish with $24m and $7m total, respectively.
