Seen in Jeonju

Korean Box Office: July 2-4

5th July 2010


I watched Shrek 3 on tv a couple of weeks ago and, frankly I am surprised that was not the end of the franchise. However, Shrek Forever wound up in number 1 this past weekend nationally and in every province with the sole exception of South Jeolla where 71: Into the Fire continues to reign. Pagwedwen Sanai–which still hasn’t been assigned an official English title as of this writing (though the web address is ‘Vendetta’)– failed to meet expectation and opened with a lukewarm reception, landing in 4th.  Only four new films are opening this week..these are listed below.


1. Arthur and the Revenge of Maltazard (fr)– d. Luc Besson, starring Freddie Highmore, Mia Farrow

2. Eclipse (us)– d. David Slade, starring Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart

3. Kick Off (ir/iq)–Shawkat Amin Konki (director and lead)

4. Killer Inside Me (us)– Michael Winterbottom, starring Jessica Alba, Katie Hudson
