“Beginning of the Great Revival” stars well-known names such as Chow Yun-fat, Andy Lau and John Woo. Its box office total so far is likely to jump quickly, given the sheer saturation of the film. The movie was screened 64,393 times last week, compared to 26,254 times for “Kung Fu Panda 2,” according to EntGroup.

The blackout period for “Beginning of the Great Revival” has delayed the China release for Hollywood’s latest blockbuster. “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” will open July 21. The film has already made more than $400 million worldwide since its release June 29, according to figures from box office tracking website Box Office Mojo.
