3rd week on top for MADAGASCAR 3!

25 June 2012

MADAGASCAR 3: EUROPE'S MOST WANTED spends a 3rd week at #1 and becomes the 2nd highest grossing film of 2012 to date in Singapore.

MIB 3 is now the 3rd highest grosser of the year. So far, four films have crossed the US$4m mark in 2012, in
cluding BATTLESHIP and THE AVENGERS, which is in an exclusive club of its own (US$10.6m and counting).

Meanwhile SADAKO 3D arrives almost dead on arrival as it only manages a weak US$193K gross from 40 screens. Faring not much better is SNOWFALL IN TAIPEI (台北飄雪) which manages US$5,988 from 2 screens while THE MOTH DIARIES collected a measly US$18,144 from 11 screens.

SNOW WHITE reigns!

4 June 2012

SINGAPORE - SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN not only knocks MEN IN BLACK 3 off the top spot, it does so with half the number of screens, no 3D surcharges and also scores the highest screen average of 2012 to date (US$28,132), bypassing THE AVENGERS (US$27,765). SNOW WHITE has now grossed US$1.26m, and is the 6th film of the year to gross more than US$1m over a single weekend following THE HUNGER GAMES, WRATH OF THE TITANS, BATTLESHIP, THE AVENGERS and MIB3 (and the only one to achieve this feat with a screen count of less than 50).

The 3D concert film I AM grosses a healthy US$90,655 from 5 screens while DING TAO: LEADER OF THE PARADE (陣頭) from Taiwan debut to a disappointing US$50,922 from 16 screens. Other debuts include BAD GIRLS (女孩坏坏) (US$19,129) and LIFE HAPPENS (US17,136).

Just for the record, the French film SECOND CHANCE by Nicolas Cuche (distributed by Festive Films and screening exclusively at FilmGarde Bugis) is not ranked by Box Office Mojo.
