Looks like The Thieves won't be beating Avatar or The Host. But still, it's an impressive run.Lots of "The" films in Korea, just on that list, you have The Traffickers, The Neighbours and The Thieves. Not to mention The Host.

What's up with that movie Masquerade? It made over 8m this weekend. I first saw it on Rentrak chart had no clue what it was. Now I see it is a Korean film.

Ooh thanks Olive. I wonder how many places it opened. It must be popular in other places too.

Koreans also like period movies from other countries too. Sherlock Holmes, Pirates, Troy, 300, Robin Hood and Golden Compass were all successes.

I guess Korea alone.

Wow. I just checked rentrak and it says only 1 territory. Amazing.Bourne is at 914,063. It did really well until Masquerade opened.How much is that USD?

Not bad. But it had a big drop so I guess it won't be much more. Seems to do okay in Asian countries. Hopefully it takes off in China and Japan.

So true. But 300 was really popular and so was Gladiator. Sherlock Holmes made good money and I didn't care for it that much.I love period dramas by they way. But wasn't 3 Musketeers a little out there? I think if it didn't stray so far away from the stories it would have done better. JMO. Edited by ECSTASY

Olive, do you know how much Resident Evil has grossed so far in South Korea? I'm really surprised that it hasn't made anything like the last one when every other country in Asia opened higher than the last.
