Looper sets box office record in China?

China desperately wants to get into the movie business. That's why Chinese film companies have helped finance an increasing number of American movies over the past few years, including the 2010 remake of Karate Kid, the upcoming Iron Man 3 and now Looper, a time-travel movie where America's economy has failed and China is the world's superpower.

It stars Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon Levitt and according to executives, last weekend it earned twenty million dollars at the U.S. box office and another twenty-five million at the Chinese box office.

Those are very significant numbers.

Because it marks the very first time an American movie opened to a bigger box office in a country other than the U.S.
Or did it?

And that brings us to tonight's number: 7 MILLION.
