Don't let the number or ranking fool you with Thor. It is a very good start because the 20m yuan all came from one day. The opening day is the second best of the year, narrowly behind Shao Lin's 21m. Last year Iron Man 2 opened on Friday and grossed 60m yuan over its first three days, so Thor's start is comparable. Look for 60m+ this full week.

Another mighty great hold for Rio. Definitely having the best legs of any films so far this year, and it still has a couple of more weeks to run before Kung Fu Panda 2 hit.
