It looks like Pacific Rim may get it's sequel after all. According to box office reports the Robot vs Monster thriller opened in China with $9 million on Wednesday.
It was the largest opening for a film ever in China beating even the Harry Potter movies. Warner Bros. is said to be keeping a close eye on it and may greenlight the sequel based on the China box office.
Very interesting as I watched a show on CNN the other day talking about why are these big budget movies continuing to be made even when they are bombing in the USA. The reason is China box office. China loves these big budget 3D (yes, China loves it) and a lot of the money being made these films are in China.
