In the first two years, due to the crotch pulling of Hollywood blockbusters, domestic films achieved good results in the annual box office rankings.
In 2020, the global film market is in decline, but the domestic film "Yahian" won a global box office of $461 million, beating Hollywood blockbusters such as "Jedi Men 3" and "Creed" to win the championship, although the final Japanese film "Ghost Slayer: Infinite Train" beat "Yahian" with a long release period, but domestic films still rarely won the second place at the annual box office.
In 2021, "Changjin Lake" starring Wu Jing won a global box office of $900 million, originally thinking that it ranked first at the box office, but I didn't expect that Marvel's "Spider-Man: Homeless" played with three worms in the same frame and won $1.971 billion at the box office, and the domestic film once again ranked second at the annual box office.
In 2022, Hollywood did not give domestic films any chance, plus the mainland box office of "Watergate Bridge" and "Walking on the Moon Alone" was not as expected, 8 of the top ten annual box office films that year were Hollywood blockbusters, and "Watergate Bridge" and "Walking on the Moon Alone" just ranked ninth and tenth.
It is clear that Hollywood blockbusters are beginning to resume releases, and domestic films are difficult to confront Hollywood due to their lack of overseas influence. This phenomenon will be repeated again in 2023.
The top ten at the global annual box office, "Furious 10" parachuted 7th, and "The Wandering Earth 2" was squeezed out of the top three!
At the beginning of 2023, the momentum of domestic films has completely crushed Hollywood blockbusters.
The mainland film market is the most golden Spring Festival file, giving birth to "Manjiang Red" and "The Wandering Earth 2" 600 million US dollars box office blockbusters, once swept the global annual box office champion and runner-up in 2023, while Hollywood's "Ant-Man 3" and "Thunder Shazam 2" and other opening blockbusters have hit the street, one global box office is only 475 million US dollars, and one has dropped to 133 million US dollars.
It is a pity that with the release of Hollywood blockbusters such as "Fast Chase 4", "Guardians of the Galaxy 3" and "Fast and Furious 10", domestic films have completely lost their advantage.
It is based on new films released after January 1, 2023
As of May 23, the top ten global annual box office are: "Super Mario Bros." $1.248 billion, "Manjiang Red" $667 million, "Guardians of the Galaxy 3" $660 million, "The Wandering Earth 2" $598 million, "Ant-Man" $475 million, "Fast and Furious 4" $427 million, "Fast and Furious 10" $323 million, "Bear Haunted: With Me Bear Core" $221 million, "Dungeons & Dragons: Rogue Glory" $207 million.
It can be seen that Hollywood accounts for a full 7, and domestic films account for only 3. Among them, "The Wandering Earth 2" has been squeezed out of the top three by "Guardians of the Galaxy 3", and the latter has only been released in the world for less than three weeks, plus Hollywood has also released many blockbuster new films in the summer, it is estimated that "Manjiang Red" and "The Wandering Earth 2" will drop in the ranking, and finally become the top ten goalkeepers.
In particular, the top ten goalkeepers at the global annual box office in 2022 are "Watergate Bridge" and "Walking on the Moon Alone", which happen to be movies starring Shen Teng and Wu Jing.
At present, "Manjiang Hong" is still the runner-up at the global annual box office, but "Fast and Furious 10" is menacing, breaking through $300 million at the box office in the first weekend, airborne the 7th annual box office, and is expected to end up at about $900 million, surpassing "Manjiang Hong" without any suspense.
Shen Teng also has "Super Family", and Wu Jing also has a card.
With Hollywood blockbusters so strong, can any domestic film break into the top ten of the global annual box office?
Judging from the currently scheduled domestic new films, "Fengshen Trilogy", "Super Family", "Megalodon 2" and "Volunteers: Heroes Attack" all have opportunities.
This year's mainland market can be called a blockbuster gathering, Huang Bo will bring the "Fengshen Trilogy" that has been hidden for many years, the three parts of the series cost 3 billion, the first of which has been confirmed to be released in the summer, and the film side expects the box office to be as high as 5 billion.
"Super Family" is the transformation of Happy Twist, super power plus comedy, is after "Walking on the Moon Alone", Happy Twist once again bet on special effects blockbusters, the production cost alone is as high as 300 million, the summer season this kind of entertainment popcorn blockbuster has been a big dark horse, plus Shen Teng's comedy is basically 2 billion box office, optimistic about "Super Family" more than 4 billion box office.
Wu Jing's "Megalodon 2" has the highest probability of entering the top ten of the global annual box office.
The reason is also very simple, "Megalodon 2" is a Sino-US co-production, even if it is a domestic film is also a Hollywood movie, so the film can achieve global distribution, the first global box office of the film is as high as 533 million US dollars, this time Wu Jing plus Jason Statham two action superstars for the first time cooperation gimmick, optimistic that "Megalodon 2" global box office broke 800 million US dollars, and even had a chance to enter the top three of the annual box office.
Needless to say, "Volunteers: Heroes Attack" mainly relies on the mainland market, and the box office ceiling is "Changjin Lake". However, this time Wu Jing became a cameo, letting young actors pick the big beam, and Chen Kaige also let his son Chen Feiyu star, whether he can create another box office miracle is worth paying attention to.
And Hollywood in the second half of the year there are "Transformers 7", "The Flash", "The Little Mermaid", "Indiana Jones 5", "Mission Impossible 7", "Aquaman 2", "Captain Marvel 2" and other blockbusters, can have the potential of box office hits, this year domestic films want to occupy a place in the top ten of the global annual box office.
The biggest problem is overseas influence, and domestic films should also go out.
