This past weekend’s box office is still hanging out in the stone age. DreamWorks Animation’s The Croods: A New Age continued to dominate a paltry domestic box office, even with the arrival of buzzy awards contender Judas and the Black Messiah.
But even as box office figures have slowly improved as major markets remain closed amid the pandemic, none of that compares to the historic weekend that the Chinese box office just enjoyed, with action-comedy sequel Detective Chinatown 3 setting the country’s record for Lunar New Year opening weekend.
