Pacific Rim made more box office in China than in the USA. Pacific Rim may edge over $100 million in the USA but will likely make $135-160 million in China. Pacific Rim last week reported over $100 million in China after 3 weeks with a third number one weekend box office of $14.6 million (a 25% drop from the second weekend).
This could help Pacific Rim to as much as $500 million in worldwide box office. Pacific Rim should pass $400 million when the numbers are released early this week for last weeks totals. I think $450 million world box office is certain.
