    "300" rises as "Non-Stop" takes a knee... It's been hard going for local flicks the past month. "Frozen", "Pompeii", and "Non-Stop" have all occupied the top spot but have been unable to hold onto that position. Now a new contender has come forth in the form of Noam Murro's "300: Rise of an Empire", an epic action fantasy sequel to the 2006 film "300". The film, which is based on a graphic novel by Frank Miller that is still to be released, claimed 661,909 (40.6%) over 720 screens to stand as the country's new number one. It was an epic start to its campaign as it dislodged "Non-Stop" at the top of the pile to take gold,...More

    "Pompeii" burns out as Neeson's latest soars… Paul W. S. Anderson's disaster epic "Pompeii" failed to retain the top spot this past weekend as the mystery thriller "Non-Stop" flew into first without contention. "Non-stop" managed to capture 33.7% of the sales (704K admissions) as it open its account with more than double that of its nearest rival. The film, which stars Liam Neeson alongside Julianne Moore, Scoot MacNairy, and Michelle Dockery, was given 582 screens in week one and secured pole position with plenty of elbow room. The only other new features to make it into the weekend's top films were 20th Century Fox's "The Monument Man" and the Oscar-winning drama "12 Years a Slave",...More

    Ice gives way to fire as "Pompeii" overthrows "Frozen" at the top… Disney's Oscar contender "Frozen" was finally dislodged at the top of pile in a hotly contested tussle at the top. This past weekend saw Paul W. S. Anderson's disaster epic "Pompeii" entered in first position (542,060-21.3%), a film that has been struggling globally after poor reviews stunted its hopes of reaching the $100M it took to produce. Despite its unimpressive stats thus far, Anderson's indulgent 3D flick only narrowly outplayed Kim Kwang-sik-I's newly released "Tabloid Truth" (440,829-20%). "Tabloid Truth" is already looking good to overtake Kim's pervious effort with "My Dear Desperado", a romantic comedy that claimed nearly 700K stubs back in 2010,...More

    "Frozen" still chilling in first after five weeks… Walt Disney's "Frozen" recently won the Best Animation award at this year's BAFTA, but Korean fans have known about its magic for weeks now. After five weeks the film is still running hot at the top of Korea's box office and, despite ticket sales falling somewhat, the film has now raced to more than 8.9 million admissions and is still going strong. After regaining the crown last week from Hwang Dong-hyeok's "Miss Granny", "Frozen" has managed to remain Korea's movie of choice having racked up 747,416 admissions (29.9%) over the weekend. In fact, both Disney's latest and Dong-hyeok's drama remained unmoved at the top of the pile, and that's despite the release of the must-anticipated "Robocop" and two new local entries in the form of "Venus Talk" and "Apostle",...More
