Greenlight More Movies With Dragons

Movies don't make ALL their money in America. And the latest growth market to factor in your rewrites is... China!

Chinese box office takings increased by 64% last year, helped by Hollywood blockbusters such as 3D movie Avatar.

Revenue surged to 10.2 billion Chinese yuan (£966m), though local officials said Chinese film-makers needed to up their game to compete with US movies.

Avatar was the biggest film in China in 2010, having taken $204m (£141.5m). In contrast the top-grossing Chinese film, Aftershock, made just $100m (£64.5m).
Thanks to the BBC, for reporting figures in pounds instead of dollars. If it interests you, Google can convert those for ya.
