Korea Box Office: ‘Judy’ Debuts on Top as Cinemas Slump To Historic Lows



The South Korean field workplace, which has been broadly affected by coronavirus and has fallen to historic lows, was additional hit by main exhibitor CJ-CGV’s current choice to close 35 complexes nationwide, and to scale back screenings at these theaters remaining in operation.

Opening on Wednesday (Mar. 25), Oscar-winning drama “Judy” debuted on prime of the field workplace. However it earned solely $269,000 from 41,000 admissions over 5 days.

“The Invisible Man” and “1917” dropped to second and third locations, respectively, from the earlier weekend’s prime spots. UPI’s “Invisible Man” earned $154,000 for a complete of $3.82 million after 5 weekends on launch. Sam Mendes’ conflict epic “1917” added $147,000 to increase its six-weekend complete to $5.27 million.

Newcomer “Scary Tales to Inform within the Darkish” opened on Wednesday and landed in fourth. The fantasy horror movie earned $177,000 over its 5 opening days, together with $105,000 on the weekend.

With few new movies opening, exhibitors are largely counting on re-releases. Re-released on Wednesday, “La La Land” earned $127,000 over 5 days. Additionally re-released, Japanese animation “Weathering with You” and American musical drama “Fame” opened on Thursday and Wednesday, respectively. “Weathering” earned $47,000 over 4 days. “Fame” earned $23,100 over 5 days.
