Sigh. Why do my favorites always have to go early? My money is officially on Tan Jing to win the season (but not her costumes). Apparently Dimash sings a Chinese song next week...

The Year of the Rooster is starting off great for Stephen Chow (周星馳), who released his film Journey to the West: The Demons Strike Back <西遊伏妖篇> on Lunar New Year.

The film, sequel to 2013’s Conquering the Demons <西遊降魔篇>, grossed over 360 million RMB (approximately $406 million HKD) on its opening day, putting it as the biggest single day and opening day for a local Chinese film. The previous film to hold this record was last year’s The Mermaid <美人魚>, which grossed 270 million RMB on the first day. The Mermaid was directed and produced by Stephen.

The biggest opening day for a film in China, however, is still headed by the Hollywood action flick Furious 7, which opened to 391 million RMB in 2015.

Also opened on Lunar New Year was Wang Baoqiang’s (王寶強) directorial debut Buddies in India <大鬧天竺>, which grossed 308 million RMB, and Jackie Chan’s (成龍) Kung Fu Yoga <功夫瑜伽>, which grossed 269 million RMB.

In Hong Kong, The Demons Strike Back grossed $5 million HKD on the first day, topping the Lunar New Year box office. Hollywood’s Resident Evil: The Final Chapter grossed $2.8 million HKD, while local Hong Kong film Yuppie Fantasia 3 <小男人週記3之吾家有喜>, which opened on January 26, grossed $1.7 million HKD. Award-winning musical film La La Land, which also opened on Thursday, grossed $2.05 million HKD to full houses on Lunar New Year.

The Demons Strike Back, produced and written by Stephen but directed by Tsui Hark (徐克), is based on the literary classic Journey to the West and tells the story of a Buddhist monk Tang Sanzang (Kris Wu 吳亦凡), who recruits Zhu Bajie, Sha Wujing, and Sun Wukong—also known as the Monkey King—to go on a journey to the west—though all for their own reasons.

Your thoughts, aiya? I thought this was an excellent episode. Everything was good from Tan Jing down. I probably would have switched 4 and 6, but all in all... tough week.
I freaking love Opera No. 2, but I hope Dimash challenges a Chinese song next week.
Zhao Lei and Jason Zhang challenge next week.
