According to figures released by the Korean Film Council, the cumulative box office total for "The Divine Move 2: The Wrathful" stands at 1.838,591 admissions following its second weekend at the box office.
The movie will likely pass two million admissions this week, and probably close out at around 2.3 million admissions in the face of strong competition opening this weekend.
"The Divine Move", by contrast, closed out with around 3.65 million admissions. However, that movie opened in a far less diverse market, while "The Divine Move 2: The Wrathful" faced much stiffer competition. Additionally, reception to the newer film has been quite positive, especially since it has been five years since the release of its predecessor. Once secondary distribution kicks in, it's entirely possible that yet another Go themed action film may be in the works.
