Seen in Jeonju

Box Office May 20-22

25th May 2011


This post is a little late.  As I mentioned over the weekend, things are very busy with school at the moment.  But I was eventually able to look at the box office totals and I was surprised by what I saw. No, not by the film that was number one, that was pretty much expected, just as I expect Pirates of the Caribbean to be booted out in favor of Kung Fu Panda this coming weekend. I was instead surprised by how many screens Pirates opened on. Over 1000 screens! I think that is a first in Korean cinema.  Also the top two movies took home more than 85% of the box office earnings! The movies opening this week are listed below, but between the Panda, Pirates and Sunny, I wonder if there is any room left for the rest…

2. Copa Cabana (fr)– d. Marc Fitoussi, starring Isabelle Huppert, Lolita Chammah
