    'Wonder Woman' captures the largest film market in Asia


    Wonder Woman tops the Chinese box office in single-day takings among the recently released films.

    Also, signs of Chinese involvement can be seen in the film.

    Before the start of the movie, the logos of Tencent Pictures (Chinese firm) and Wanda Pictures (Chinese firm) appear alongside the producers Warner Bros and DC Entertainment.

    The 140-minute movie had raked in nearly 400 million yuan ($59 million) in China, which overtook Japan to become the world's second-largest movie market in 2012.

    The ranking is probably due to the movie's Shanghai promotional event attended by Israeli actress Gal Gadot and American actor Chris Pine, industry watchers say.

    Wonder Woman premiered in Shanghai on May 15, 2017, and was released in the United States on June 2, 2017, in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D.

    Very interesting... 1st time I heard of a Hollywood movie premiering in China. Maybe coz it had two major Chinese companies backing its production.
