'Coin Locker Girl' Achieves Better-Than-Expected Results at Box Office

2015/05/12 | 455 views | Permalink | Source

The noir film "Coin Locker Girl" passed the 1 million mark in viewership on Saturday, some 10 days after its release on April 30.

The film's viewership performance came as a surprise because it faces a number of box-office disadvantages.

It received an R rating, which greatly limits the audience, and had to contend with competition for filmgoers' cash with Hollywood blockbuster "Avengers: Age of Ultron", which has virtually monopolized cinemas across the country.

Thanks to a positive reception from audiences, however, it has been able to get screened in more cinemas.

"Coin Locker Girl" concerns the relationship between a girl who was abandoned in a coin locker at a subway station at birth and a crime boss who raised her.

The film will be screened as part of International Critics' Week at the 68th Cannes Film Festival, which kicks off on Wednesday.
