'The Attorney' Expected to Break More Box Office Records

Source | 2014/01/02 | | Permalink

"The Attorney" is likely to become this year's first movie to draw 10 million moviegoers. According to the Korean Film Council, a total of 5.69 million people had watched it as of Tuesday. The number had risen to 6 million on Wednesday morning, only 15 days after the flick was released, according to distributer NEW.

If its popularity continues at a similar pace, it could become the fastest film to achieve the milestone in the history of Korean cinema. It needed five fewer days to attract 5 million cinemagoers than last year's "Miracle in Cell No.7". "The Attorney" gained more momentum in its second week, thus raising expectations even higher...More

Song on song as "The Attorney" rounds out a stellar year…

The Korean box office has ended its record-breaking year on a massive high as Yang Woo-seok's "The Attorney" and Won Sin-yeon's "The Suspect" dominated the final weekend. This year's remarkable ticket sales indicate that Koreans are some of the most active filmgoers in the world, with an average of 4.1 trips in 2013 (the U.S. sits on 4.3). Support for local flicks has, indeed, been incredible this year, and the encouragement continued right up until the very end as "The Attorney" and "The Suspect" closed proceedings for the home team in emphatic style...More

Box Office Turns Up the Heat Over Christmas with Stocking Full of Treats

Source | 2013/12/25 | | Permalink

Winter is a great time to head to the cinema due to the number of theatrical releases on offer -- many of them with a festive theme -- and also to escape the cold climes outside. Below is a list of the best on offer at the silver screen over Yuletide, whether it be for a family trip, romantic excursion or just good old escapist fare.

◆ Marital Bonds

"Way Back Home" is based on the true story of a regular housewife who is arrested in Paris on a charge of attempting to smuggle over 30 kg of cocaine when she mistakenly thought she was carrying gems for a friend. The woman is subsequently imprisoned on a remote Caribbean island, forcing her husband to take action to fight for her freedom...More

Song Kang-ho ho ho's "The Attorney" to the Top...

All others were found wanting this past weekend as Yang Woo-seok's "The Attorney" put up a feverish 1.3M (45.2%) admissions ahead of the Christmas celebrations. Last week Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" was the flickering favourite, but the epic feature conceded defeat here as Yang's star-struck local drama ensured the year ended on a local high. The other domestic disturbances were Lee Hyeon-jong's racy romance "Catch Me", and an early favouring of Gong Yoo's first action outing: "The Suspect".

The second instalment of Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" added 381,794 (13.2%) to its new bottom line of 1.6M ($12M); less than half of what it smuggled in last weekend and now skulks into second after Yang's attractive opening act. "The Attorney" outplayed Mr. B. Baggins and his adventuring entourage with a talented team of its own, employing the powerful prestige of this year's gold-fingered Song Kang-ho (who has already steered two showstoppers to glory: the French-born "Snowpiercer" and the dynastic "The Face Reader"), alongside further gems in Kim Yeong-ae ("Confession of Murder"), Oh Dal-soo ("Miracle in Cell No.7") and Kwak Do-won ("A Company Man"). "The Attorney" follows a civil rights lawyer through a landmark human rights case during Korea's tumultuous 1980s; a perhaps strange Christmas flick, but one that Korean audiences have lavishly lapped up in week one...More
