During two weeks (between June 16 and July 2) the movie brought over 45 million in China, which is a great surprise. As a comparison, the Prometheus total box office was around 31 million there in 2012.
Alien Covenant is released in Japan in September. The big question is if it will reach the Japanese total of 20 million brought by Prometheus five years ago.
No offense taken. Part of what I'm saying is that when people get up in arms over a movie, they're not being as serious as some people think. It's not 100% real anger. If they're honest with themselves, it's play-anger, like the play-fear we feel in horror movies.
It's not "I'm going to literally bunch somebody in the face" anger nor is it "I'm going to organize a protest because this is a very serious issue that must be corrected" anger.
It's "I'm going to type something antagonistic in an internet repartee while slowly sipping a cup of coffee" anger.
Total box office looks to be close to $231,500,000 now. But, the China numbers seem older. I guess it takes longer to tabulate them? Regardless, with Japan coming up in September, home media release, digital downloads, etc. Thoughts on whether this will all be enough to get an Alien: Covenant sequel?
I think at this point, we'll be getting a sequel regardless. Fox has invested too much and it'll be in bad form to not let Ridley finish/continue his story.

According to this page it is now over 232 million worldwide. http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=alienparadiselost.htm
It's gonna make a ton of money on digital sales.
