'Skyfall' closes in on $50m box-office in China
"Skyfall" will close in on a $50m USD box-office take in China this weekend, according to estimates.
As of Thursday, the film had scooped $44.7 million ($34.4 million in its first seven days).
007 has had little box-office competition in its Chinese release so far, but that is about to change as the Hollywood flick "Cloud Atlas" opens this weekend. The film tool $2.6m on its opening day of release in China.
Industry watchers claim that approximately 40 minutes were cut out of the epic for Chinese audiences, which puts the minor tweaks made to "Skyfall" in stark contrast.
