Korean Weekend Box Office (2011.05-20~2011.05.22)
"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" smashes its way to the head of the pack this week with a massive 1,206,519 admissions! This is the forth film in the series and it's causing a frenzy at Korean theatres.
Kang Hyeong-cheol's "Sunny - 2010" buckled from the might of its successor and had no choice but to settle for second. This feel-good story of a group of women looking to reconnect with high school friends still recorded a tidy 535,836 admissions. Third place in the charts this week is "Source Code" with just 75,632 tickets sold. You can see how the top two have really taken ownership of the numbers this week. And out of Hong Kong comes Felix Chong and Alan Mak's "The Lost Bladesmen", in it two friends are forced to fight under the order of the tyrant forces in order to save the woman they both love.
"The Apprehenders" is at number five with a relatively unimpressive 48,729 admissions, the chart has been cruel this week as "The Apprehenders" sees its sales cut almost by two thirds from last weekend. "The Cane" is a new Korean entry directed by Park Kwang-woo. This is his first feature film and it chooses a tough week to present itself. The film had just 28,367 admissions thus far. "Thor" follows and what a falloff it is having from attracting 131,612 moviegoers the previously to this week's 17,646.
The intense and flashy "Fast Five" drifts down further to our number eight and the Japanese "Crayon Shin-chan: Super-Dimension! The Storm Called My Bride" is keeping the young one happy at nine. And it's a good thing to because at number ten is "3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy", a film labelled as the "world's first IMAX 3-D erotic film". There is definitely something in the theatres for everyone this week!
