Overall weekend grosses rise to $17.6 million as approximately 60% of China’s theaters reopen

China’s movie theaters are continuing a slow recovery but got a good boost on Sunday from the rerelease of Warner Bros.’ Christopher Nolan-directed “Interstellar,” which made $2.85 million to set a new single-day high for the country’s box office since cinemas started reopening after months of COVID-19 closures. The $2.85 million total topples the $2.4 million opening day total earned in Korea by the “Train to Busan” sequel “Peninsula” three weeks ago. The total includes $660,000 from 461 IMAX screens, a format that will be significantly promoted for “Tenet.” Overall weekend numbers are still a small fraction of what is usually seen from the lucrative box office market, settling at just $17.6
