BEIJING, July 29 (Xinhuanet) -- The boxing film Southpaw Robinson Cano Jersey , backed by a $30 million production investment from Chinese property developer Wanda Dalian Corp, took in $20 million during its opening weekend at US and international box offices.
The film starring Jake Gyllenhaal is the first investment in a US movie by Beijing-based Wanda, which owns the second-largest US movie theater chain, AMC Entertainment Holdings, according to the Wall Street Journal.
In addition to Wanda's investment, the Weinstein Co spent $35 million marketing the film, according to the newspaper Randy Johnson Jersey , and the two companies will split any profit.
Southpaw grossed $16.5 million in the domestic box office and $3.5 million internationally. Though it has not been released in China, Weinstein Co is hoping that Wanda's investment will make it more likely that the government will allow the release in Chinese theaters, it was reported.
Directed by Antoine Fuqua, the movie has not been well-received by critics. Variety magazine called it "heavy handed" and the Los Angeles Times said it was "gleefully preposterous." The Wall Street Journal said Southpaw is " a win for Mr Gyllenhaal, while the movie loses out to its clichs". And The New York Times' critic wrote: "It's strictly an undercard bout, displaying enough heart and skill to keep the paying customers from getting too restless".
Rob Cain, a California-based producer who has worked on US and Chinese film productions Nelson Cruz Jersey , said that a company of Wanda's size has the capital to invest, and backing Southpaw might have been a way for it to learn about the American film-making process. David Glasser, president of Weinstein, told the Journal that Wanda was on the set and involved in all parts of the process. "They wanted to learn how we do what we do," he said.
"They've got lots of money to play with, and I think they're going to continue to be mainly focused on the domestic Chinese market, but maybe what they're doing is taking an opportunity to spend some money to invest and learn about the American approaches to filmmaking Kyle Seager Jersey , and strategies and what goes into marketing films. I don't think learning is the only reason, but that's maybe one of their motivations for making an investment like this," said Cain.
Though Weinstein Co invested in Southpaw's marketing, Wanda is the sole financier of the project for investing in production, a "much riskier" investment for a company, he said.

LONDON, Aug. 3 (Xinhua) -- Christian Taylor has always had one goal on his mind -- breaking the triple jump world record.
With two Olympic and two world titles Ken Griffey Jersey , the 27-year-old has one challenge remained to be tackled in his otherwise brilliant career and that is to break the long-standing world record of 18.29 meters set by British Jonathan Edwards at the 1995 World Championships in Gothenburg.
"I have wanted the world record from day one. I am a little disappointed that I have not achieved it so far. I have heard his (Britain's record holder Jonathan Edwards) son's birthday is on the day of the final and I would like to give him this gift (of taking his world record away)," said Taylor at Thursday's pre-competition news conference ahead of the athletics world championships kicking off on Friday.
Taylor jumped to win at 2015 Beijing world championships with his personal best of 18.21, an all-time second best behind Edwards' record and hoped to perform even better in London.
"Hopefully it will be a Beijing rematch, maybe a little further. Mentally I am where I need to be," said the American. "I pray that I can take care of my qualification day. I will focus on the first step. But, if I had not locked my eyes on the gold medal, I would not be here."
If Taylor indeed breaks the world record Jean Segura Jersey , what elso goal does he have? Taylor hinted that he.
