Lovely Indie Makes History…
The biblical epic "Exodus: Gods and Kings" failed to return to the top celebrating a narrow victory over the cosmically curious "Interstellar" last weekend. Week two for Ridley's personal odyssey (the film is dedicated to the late Tony Scott) was not as promising as its entry; it slumped to third having captured only 18% (346K) of the box office pie.

It's not over yet, but the film has so far absorbed nearly 10 million admissions ($65.2M): a mega-milestone in Korea that currently only a dozen features can boast (all after 2003 starting with "Silmido"). "Snowpiercer" (9.3M), "The Face Reader" (9.1M), and "Iron Man 3" (9M) have all had a recent sniff, and "Interstellar" still needs a further 800K to buy into this elite club...More
