Patrick Frater Asia Bureau Chief “Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga” enjoyed one day at the top of the mainland China box office before being deposed by a crop of local new releases that opened in time for the Dragon Boat holiday. “Civil War” performed even more slowly.

China’s Friday to Sunday weekend box office saw “Be My Friend” score $8.1 million (RMB57.7 million), albeit earned over just two days.

That put it ahead of “Walk the Line” in second place with $7.8 million (RMB55.6 million) and “Crisis Negotiators,” with $5.8 million (RMB40.9 million), according to data from consultancy firm Artisan Gateway. “The Garfield Movie,” which had a two-day run the previous weekend, slipped from second place to fourth.

It scored $5.4 million (RMB38.0 million) for a nine-day cumulative of $15.2 million in China. Fifth place over the latest weekend chart was taken by the two-day performance of “Gold or Shit,” with $4.8 million. “Furiosa” and “Civil War” fell outside of the top-five data provided by Artisan Gateway.
