A Chinese Odyssey Part Three was released in China amidst the Mid-Autumn Festival from which it benefitted. The film opened Wednesday, September 14 and delivered $6.26 million on its first day. It climbed higher to $13.1 million on Thursday (due largely because the festival fell on this day) and held to $9.61 million on Friday (since Friday was also a holiday), before dropping to $5.71 million on Saturday and finally $2.67 million on Sunday (since work resumed on Sunday). In total, the film made $33.3 million in five days according to data from Ent Group and $17.3 over the three days of the weekend (Friday to Sunday), according to ComScore easily topping the Chinese box office and recorded an opening nearly double the second place Z Storm 2 if going by the five-day figure. If we go by the former five-day figure, that means it was the top international earner of the weekend, but going by the latter number, it ranks in third place, behind Bridget Jones's Baby and The Age of Shadows.
Following a first-place finish, the film went on to hold the top position for the second weekend in a row but fell precipitously by earning just $5.97 million (Friday to Sunday) and $13.3 million in its second full week (Monday to Sunday). This was despite competition from newcomer Hollywood animated film Storks. The huge fall was due to mixed word of mouth and since the week before National Day holiday (prior to October 1) is typically a dumping ground for releasing films in which distributors have little confidence in their films' box office potential.
