Korean Box Office: January 1-3

6th January 2010

Well, I am back in Rhode Island after a week in Texas and I have one thing to say–Never again will I fly on Continental!!  5 of the six flights I was booked on were late to take off by an hour or more–one time because they overbooked the flight and were looking to kick off 25 people and another time because they had a change of flight crew but could not locate the new flight attendent and later her paperwork!

Anyway–here is the box office from the New Year weekend and what is opening for this coming week.

Title-percent of box office–change in position–number of tickets sold to date
