Crime Comedy Set to Dominate Holiday Box Office with Ease

2016/02/05 | 490 views | Permalink | Source

A crime comedy starring top actors Hwang Jung-min and Gang Dong-won looks set to be the unchallenged box office leader over the Lunar New Year holiday.

"A Violent Prosecutor", which hit theaters on Wednesday, attracted 525,752 viewers on its opening day alone, leaping straight into the top box-office spot. Its nearest competitor, No. 2-ranked "Kung Fu Panda 3", drew 63,659 moviegoers.

The film's opening day tally surpassed those of such blockbusters as last year's "The Assassination" and "Veteran", which drew some 470,000 and 410,000 viewers on their opening days and went on to sell over 10 million tickets each.

"A Violent Prosecutor" is likely to continue to dominate the box office for the week to come as few other options are available in theaters. Showbox is the only major domestic distributor releasing a film targeting the Lunar New Year holiday lasting until next Wednesday, leaving the flick without big rivals.
