Though the kaiju fest known as Pacific Rim "bombed" in the States due to the inferior American movie goer thinking a deer pissing on Adam Sandler (aka Grown Ups 2) is more entertaining than giant robots and monsters duking it out (it's currently on track to make just over one hundred million domestically). China and several other nations of the world have decided to step up to the plate. Deadline reports the movie has opened HUGE in China generating nine million dollars on just it's opening day of Wednesday. 

Several key market countries have yet to release the film (Spain, Brazil and Japan) all of whom will be releasing the movie in theaters next week. With the movie currently raking in possibly two hundred and twenty-four million dollars at the International Box Office, it's looking like it'll be a hit for Warner Brothers. Pacific Rim is also starting to prove that if a movie fails in America, it can still get back it's budget through the foreign market. This news is looking ever better for a movie  sequel and franchise (via more comics, figures, and other nerdish delights). Which means more glorious Hannibal Chau:
