Seems Cov is having problems because it's too f**ked up. Shame cause it'll be the loss of a huge market but you can't compromise the filmmaker's vision by cutting it to pieces. I think they had to cut FOURTEEN minutes of Logan over there to get a release.

officially panicking again. .it will be a huge loss for the movie. .but hopefully they can cut the worst and still get it released over in the middle kingdom. .it will really make a massive impact on box office. Thats a certainty. .so lets hope it does really well everywhere else. .

Well I can say this none of the IMAX theaters in my general area ordered this for IMAX. The theaters in the bigger city close by ordered it for IMAX, but there are 2 IMAX theaters in my general area, and they both told me they wanted to keep GOTG 2 up for a 3rd week.

My point was that if it's gonna see a reduction in IMAX theatre releases then it wont make as much money.

I emailed my cinemas in Glasgow regarding the IMAX release and up to a week ago, the reply was that none were going to show it in IMAX.
Yesterday all the cinemas were advertising it as available in IMAX..
So now I have a ticket for the preview on the 11 Mayfrom the Alien Day and for the IMAX on the 12th =)
Give it time

I just love how the translation calls Ridley Scott "RAY FATHER" and Noomi Rapace "LOMI LAPES".

Any idea on how popular the Alien series is in China? Wondering how much of an impact it will have all in all. Unless I am mistaken, Prometheus did not,appear in China cinemas and still managed to pull in 402 million at the box office, which is quite decent when comparing it to the budget (including marketing)... Not to mention the blu ray and digital sales.

Also, something IMPORTANT to keep in mind is that Prometheus was not an Alien film by name so that probably did not help it. Alien: Covenant is an obvious Alien film with a solid marketting campaign and will be releasing in a time when big budget R-rated films do quite well. I predict a worldwide Box Office success at $600 million easily. I see a lot of people hyped for the movie (anedoctal, yes, but still...). Commercially it will be a large success and critically the general audience will enjoy it and find it to be intense and fun to watch, while probably pretty divided amongst more hardcore alien fans.

...i was looking at an article on google earlier today about ten movies not being released in china....i could hardly believe that Deadpool was one of them..i mean considering it was an R rated movie and how much it ended up making, and at the same time was it really that hardcore?..still my favorite super hero movie must be Watchmen and that was way more extreme than Deadpool in terms of violence, sex and nudity, haven't checked if that one was released in china...but i am guessing ...NOT. ..with Dr Manhattan flashing his penis all over the show...so i guess that their is still some hope for covenant's box office...and we don't know for certain if covenant wont be released in china yet...so keeping my fingers crossed.

We have Pirates of the Caribbean 5 and Diary of a Wimpy Kid 3 coming out. I feel like AC may not reach #1 at the box office on the first week. Fox made the same mistake with Prometheus by releasing it on the same week with another shitty kids movie.

Covenant really needs a big opening considering its budget. Anything less than a $50 million opening is going to indicate domestic flop. And now with the news that China won't be showing it, it needs ever advantage it can get.

Vermillion

$52.8 million Domestic opening
$124 million total Domestic run
$160 International run.
