Despite backlash over government censorship of Kate Winslet’s boobs, the 3D re-release of Titanic had a huge opening day in China on Tuesday, according to Box Office Mojo. The film reportedly took in US$11.6 million (or RMB 73 million) from 2,400 3D screens and 66 IMAX 3D screens throughout the country.
That’s bigger than Titanic 3D’s weekend debut in any other international market.
The film took in US$44 million in China back in 1998, and the re-release is expected to surpass that within the week.
