Weekly Thread – International BO last weekend – Nov 09-11 2012

North America:
———————————

As expected “Skyfall” opened with a bang and recorded the biggest opening for a Bond movie even if ticket price inflation is considered. The movie opened at Thursday midnight with an estimated $2.2 million, and pulled in $88.36 million over the weekend for a total opening of $90.56 million.

Little is needed to talk abt the film as almost everyone is aware of it, except that critics are going ga-ga over it (as evident from 91% tomatometer score), western people are loving it (evident from box office record breakings), but reviews from desi people are quite opposite. A couple of feedbacks from NG and some from my real-life friends are not positive at all. My question to the ones who disliked it, if you have seen “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” please give your feedback abt that movie and compare it with Skyfall.

There is no new movie in the rest of the top five spots. “Wreck-It-Ralph” held up beautifully adding $33.01 million over the weekend for a total of $93.65 million after ten days of release. “Flight” captured the third spot adding $14.79 million over the weekend for a total of $47.46 million after 10 days.

“Skyfall”

Release Date: 9 November 2012 (USA)

Genre: Action | Adventure | Crime

Director: Sam Mendes

Stars: Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Bérénice Lim Marlohe.

Story:

In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.

South Korea:
—————————

In an year of unprecedented successes of the Korean movies, another local movie took the box office by storm. “A Warewolf Boy” retained the top position at the BO and did so with aplomb, garnering $8.72 million over the weekend which is 27.6% more than what it earned last weekend. In total it has accumulated $23.24 million till now. New local movie “Confession of Murder” earned the second spot with $4.02 million and “Skyfall” earned third position with $1.52 million over the weekend and in total $14.44 million after the third weekend. Other notable one is “Masquerade” earning fourth position with $1.16 million over the weeknd and $77.78 million in total.

“Confession of Murder”

Release Date: 08 November 2012 (Korea)

Genre: Action | Thriller

Director: Jeong Byeong-gi

Stars: Jeong Jae-yeong, Park Si-hoo, Kim Young-Ae, Choi Won-Young, Jo Eun-Ji and Min Ji-A

Story:

After the statute of limitation expires on the murders he has committed, Lee Du-seok publishes an autobiography describing all his murders in great detail. Detective Choi, who investigated Lee’s murders 15 years ago starts the chase once again and Han Ji-soo, who lost her daughter to Lee, pledges vengeance. Meanwhile, another killer appears, casting doubt to whether Lee is the real serial killer.

China:
—————

There is a new local movie at the top of Chinese BO this week – the HK cops and robber thriller “Cold War”, which made an impressive debut earning $14.47 million over the weekend. Next place on the chart went to “Tai Chi Hero” grossing $5.88 million over the past week, with a total of $16.04 till now. “The Bourne Legacy” followed with a gross of$5.57 million, and a total of $31.18 million so far. New hollywood movie “Wreck-It Ralph” debuted in fourth spot earning $4.66 million. In fifth place “Total Recall” earned $1.74 million and $18.01 million so far.

“Cold War”

Release Date: 08 November 2012 (China, HK)

Genre: Action | Thriller

Director: Longman Leung and Sunny Luk

Starring: Aaron Kwok, Toney Leung Ka Fai, Andy Lau, Eddie Peng, Aarif Rahman and Charlie Young.

With no famous director (directed by first-timers) and low-key marketing, the made-in-Hong Kong cop thriller was considered a black horse before its release. The film was supposed to be pushed aside by strong competitors like The Bourne Identity, Taichi 2, Wreck-It Ralph and Skyfall (screened in Hong Kong). But certainly it has caught moviegoers’ attention and now it is touted as the next “Internal Affairs”.

Story:

A van carrying advanced equipment and five police officers is hijacked. Demanding a high ransom, the perpetrators also play a deadly cat-and-mouse game with the cops. The rescue operation, code-named Cold War, becomes a power struggle between rival police deputy commissioners Lau (Aaron Kwok) and Lee (Tony Leung Ka Fai), whose son (Eddie Peng) is one of those abducted.

Lau wants to negotiate with the hijackers while covertly tracking them to their hideout. Lee is ready for an all-out aggressive attack, no matter the cost. Both are aware that every decision is crucial, that each minute counts. But as they execute a carefully planned attack, they know they’ve become unwitting pawns in a bigger, more dangerous game.

Japan:
———————

Last weeks winner “The Floating Castle” repeated the feat, earning $3.82 million and in total $14.78 after second weekend. Second place went to the highly prolific and controversial Japanese filmmaker Takashi Miike’s new movie “Lesson of the Evil”, which grossed $3.73 million over the weekend. “A Chorus of Angels” which was at number two last week is a place down at number three, earning $1.65 million over the weekend and $6.99 after second weekend.

“Lesson of the Evil”

Release Date: 10 November 2012 (Japan)

Genre: Suspense | Horror

Director: Takashi Miike

Starring: Hideaki Ito, Takayuki Yamada and Mitsuru Fukikoshi.

Story:

High school teacher Seiji Hasumi is the most popular teacher at his school with an attractive smile. Yet, Seiji Hasumi is a psychopath. To solve some of his school’s problems, like bullying, and to protect himself, Seiji begins to kill his students one by one.

    Looks like Koreans are Besotted with Murder,Horror,Thriller.
    Emmy wud have been the ‘Bachchan of Korean Cinema’.

    I Quite Like the Dark, Cold Themes Kor/Jap Movies and Anime’s Carry in them.

    There is always an Eeiry, Cold Feel to them and they are Handled with Some Super Graphics and Slick Sequences.

    “Emmy wud have been the ‘Bachchan of Korean Cinema.”

    forget bachchan.. emmy wud not have been even “Emmy” if he were in korean cinema… compare emmy’s performances in those korean remakes with the actors in the originals… he is no match to them

    If somebody’s fond of supernatural stuff, do watch Pizza – a tamil movie. I could understand Tamil so didnt have too much of a problem, but i dont know if subs are available for it.
    But hell yeah its a great movie and deserves to be seen. Now thats how you make a supernatural story…with common elements and a new concept.
    Highly recommended!!

    8/10

    Nirjhar – I have seen it, and I think it was a decent attempt. Many found it bullshit, but I think the basic idea was not something you can entirely dismiss. Making a regular Indian commercial movie out of a concept that is so very Indian and so very unknown, I thought Murugados did a great job.! The problem was when he tried to cater to the masses, it kinda ruined the effect of the premise. But somewhere I would ask u to atleast give it a try. It’s not bad if u wanna see it as any other movie. It’s only when u expect it to do something greater on the basis of how it starts off..is where it fails bigtime.
