Bay's Blockbuster Dominates…
Michael Bay's bombastic "Transformers: Age of Extinction" landed in Korea on Wednesday and, quite simply, dominated. The lastest in the "Transformer" series enslaved some 1.8M filmgoers over a whopping 1,597 screens to dislodge "Edge of Tomorrow" as Korea's film of choice. It did so by greedily gobbling 78% of the box office pie, leaving little more than crumbs for the rest of the pack as Bay's brutes raced to 2.6M admissions ($21.6M)...More

Last weekend Doug Liman's science fiction adaptation "Edge of Tomorrow" snatched over 1.5M admissions to take gold, and while its haul was significantly less this time around, the 679K (40%) it pulled over the weekend was enough to secure a second reign. Cruise and his sci-fi flicks go down like a treat in Korea, and paired with the tale's Japanese origin, Liman's futuristic frenzy has thus far managed to amass over 3M admissions ($25M). And while Cruise and his co-star Emily Blunt were blazing at the top, two new local films made their entry into the top ten in the form of "Gyeongju" and "For The Emperor"...More
