I can see this getting a few more markets, possibly a N. America limited release but it has been doing well so far with China, Hong Kong and Taiwan doing fantastic business. It's been reported that tickets for A Simple Life in Taiwan were sold out fast. One to watch out for in the next few weeks.

I wonder if it does well in Italy if that will help it break through into the European market.
