China Box Office Summary for the First Half of 2012

China's box office saw record-breaking numbers again in the first half of the year, but it was also completely dominated by Hollywood releases. Overall, 141 films were released in theaters and grossed 7.74 billion yuan in total; however, the 38 imports accounted for a whopping 65% of the gross. In fact, the top 12 Hollywood releases alone combined for 4.43 billion yuan, or 57% of the overall total. With the release of Painted Skin 2, which had grossed 527.3m yuan ($83m) in 11 days, the domestic films are looking for a big comeback in the second half, but for the first half, the stage had certainly belonged to the imports.
