For the second week in a row, box office sales reach a new peak - as US$4,236,701 (S$5,205,762) worth of tickets were sold - the highest in about four years since Box Office Mojo started tracking in 2007. More research will need to be done - but could this be a all-time record? Last week, a new peak was reached, but that record is now history.
This week, the top 3 films X-Men: First Class, Kung Fu Panda 2 and The Hangover Part II accounted for 92.9% of total ticket sales.
X-Men: First Class's first weekend gross of US$1,724,673 makes it the 9th highest grossing film of the year.
Meanwhile, Kung Fu Panda 2 became the year's top grossing film - its total gross now stands at US$5,090, 498 (S$6,254,848) - possibly earning it a spot in the Top 10 highest grossing films of all time in Singapore.
