apparently this movie is doing real well internationally, it already made back all its money and broke records in China as it was the biggest box office opening warner bros ever had in china. and it hasn't even opened in Japan yet
from the article above.
The latest development is the 3D sci-fi actioner’s Wednesday opening in China to a record-breaking $9M from an estimated 5,700 digital 3D screens, 117 digital 3D IMAX screens, and 22 China Giant Screen sites. That’s a new high for any Warner Bros release and 23% bigger than for any Harry Potter film including 3D Harry Potter 7B. Pacific Rim grossed a huge 70% of the Top Five market share there. This is after the pic broke through to become the #1 film internationally on July 19-21 as it rolled out into less than half the global territories. Pacific Rim releases in Spain, Brazil and Japan on August 9th.
im going to be real shocked if this movie doesn't do well in japan off all places, but real glad that its turning a profit now,
hope they fully confirm and give del toro the full greenlight to do a sequel, as the idea floating around (spoilers for those who havent seen it) sounds pretty interesting.
