China’s Box Office is Up. How much is Hollywood getting?

Marketwatch notes that China cinema box office receipts are up and will grow in 2010 by an estimated 43% over 2009. The big question – that the article does not answer – is how much of the take on Hollywood films actually finds its way into studio coffers. Filmmakers may be pleased that China is turning into a paying market, but it doesn’t mean much if ChinaFilm hangs onto all the cash. Renegotation, anyone?
