Box Office Revenues Rise 30% on 3D Movies' Success

2010/04/07 | Permalink | Source

Box office sales have increased by 30 percent year-on-year in the first quarter of this year.

The Korean Film Council said in its quarterly summary of the Korean motion picture industry that the number of moviegoers also increased more than seven percent during the same period.

The council attributed the jump in box office revenues to a ticket price hike in June 2009 and the popularity of 3-dimensional films, such as "Avatar", which are priced some one-and-a-half times higher than other movies

Meanwhile, the number of moviegoers to Korean films dropped by just under one percentage point year-on-year. Four Korean films were in the top ten in terms of the number of moviegoers among all films shown in Korea. The top four Korean movies were "Secret Reunion", "JEON WOO CHI : The Taoist Wizard", "Harmony", and "No Mercy".
