Christian Bale's star turn in China's "Flowers of War" has been a success: The historical drama earned $83 million in 17 days, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
That box office gross makes the film the sixth largest release ever in the country, and the top grossing Chinese movie of 2011. Directed by Zhang Yimou, "Flowers of War" is well on its way to recouping its $100 million budget, the largest of any Chinese film to date.
It still has a while to go before it could come close to surpassing the $204 million "Avatar" made at the Chinese box office, which makes it the No. 1 release of all time in the country.
"Flowers of War" bowed in China on December 16, and had a one week run in the States at the end of December.
good movie,good actor and actress and good director.
Congratulations! I have just read this news on millionaire dating site(Wealthychats.com). I'm very glad to hear it.
I just saw avatar for the first time. I got talked into it. Didn't think I would care for it 1 bit. Thought the characters looked like a bunch of weird smurfs. I was wrong. It was a good movie.
It has been interesting to watch China evolve into an art loving country. It's actually a beautiful place to live. Traveling and living in China is pretty affordable for westerners looking to visit or live in the country. I came across some stats that say you can have a decent life in China for a mere $28,000 per year. Retirement destination?
Bale is the shiz.
