'Pirates' lock in box office No. 1 for week 2

Source | 2014/09/01 | | Permalink

Actress Son Ye-jin and actor Kim Nam-gil's movie "Pirates" is seeing a spurt in ticket sales almost a month after its release.

The movie, which hit local theaters a week after the record-breaking film "The Admiral: Roaring Currents", secured the No. 1 spot in the local box office for two consecutive weeks, according to the Korean Film Council. It entered in second place two weeks ago...More

Lee's "Pirates" still rule the roost while "The Admiral" spies 17M…

The last few weeks have seen Korea's box office figures soar thanks to two seafaring delights: Kim Han-min's epic "Admiral" and Lee Seok-hoon's "Pirates". The last weekend of August, however, saw a slight return to normalcy as ticket sales sunk in the wake of Kim and Lee's period powerhouses coming down from their profitable reigns at the top.

Last weekend Lee's "Pirates" stole first from "The Admiral: Roaring Currents" with 951K, with Kim's naval strategist following close behind it with 802K. "Pirates" second term at the top, however, yielded just 620K (25.5%) while "The Admiral" was bumped down to third with 333K (13.7%). Together these two action attractions have amassed nearly 24M admissions and are still going around scooping up survivors as the new season is ushered in...More

"Pirates" and "The Admiral" tussle at the top…

It's been a thrilling month for Kim Han-min's "The Admiral: Roaring Currents" as it quickly became the highest grossing Korean film in history by surpassing the 13M admissions "The Host" put up back in 2006. Kim's epic depiction of Admiral Yi Sun-Shin's legendary role in the Battle of Myeongnyang may have been pushed down into second, but the additional 802K (29.9%) it cornered over the weekend pushes this mighty piece of moviemaking to a record 16.2M admissions ($123M)...More
