Can Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’ crack China’s market?

They really like Christopher Nolan’s films in China.

The director’s “Dark Knight” trilogy proved hugely popular with Chinese audiences and his 2014 sci-fi blockbuster “Interstellar” grossed $122 million there.

Now, Nolan’s World War II epic “Dunkirk” has generated more than $120 million worldwide in less than a week. The widespread commercial and critical appeal of the movie, which recounts the evacuation of more than 300,000 British troops fleeing a French beach in May-June 1940, has reinforced 46-year-old Nolan’s position as one of Hollywood’s hottest properties.

The movie opened strongly in Asia but has yet to open in China because of the country’s annual summer blackout on foreign films.
