In China, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore cruised to an easy win during its opening weekend, but the prize was smaller than usual.

According to data from Artisan Gateway, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore earned just $9,700,000. Thanks to ongoing COVID-19 outbreaks, an estimated 54 percent of China’s cinemas are closed.

In 2016, the first Fantastic Beasts film opened at $40,400,000 in China, the sequel, In 2018, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, debuted at $36,600,000.

Social scores for the Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore were solid, if unexceptional: 8.7 from Alibaba’s Taopiaopiao, 8.7 on Maoyan, and 6.7 on Douban.

The film performed better on Imax, earning $1,500,000 in the giant-screen format, or 15 percent of its nationwide total. Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore played on 360 Imax screens.

Hollywood titles have been earning less than before in China in recent years. Still, the current COVID-19 closures make it difficult to assess whether the general trend of waning local enthusiasm for United States movies was also a factor in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore‘s lackluster opening.

Sony’s animated sequel Hotel Transylvania 4 earned just $1,400,000 in its second weekend for $6,200,000. Hotel Transylvania 3 (2018) earned $32,200,000 in China.
