HERCULES and WOLF claim top spot!

13 Jan 2013

SINGAPORE - THE LEGEND OF HERCULES claims the top spot this weekend with the edited R21 version of THE WOLF OF WALL STREET coming in behind in the runner-up spot.

HERCULES starts with US$394,887 from 25 screens for a hefty US$15,795 screen average. THE WOLF OF WALL STREET proves that a higher age restriction and a 3-hour runtime isn't going to dampen its box office results as it becomes the first film to gross more than US$20K per screen this year. The Martin Scorsese pic scored a US$20,026 screen average from 15 screens for a strong US$300,389 gross. That's already more than what EVIL DEAD, the top R21 rated film of 2013 grossed (US$288,887).

WALTER MITTY steps up to no. 1!

6 Jan 2014

SINGAPORE - THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY moves up to the no. 1 spot in one of those rare moments where a newly crowned champion is a holdover. It collects US$289,098 over its second weekend, bringing its total to US$1,156,895 to date.

Last year, LES MISERABLES became the first no. 1 film of 2013 when it knocked the Jackie Chan vehicle CHINESE ZODIAC 十二生肖 from the top. And in a case of deja vu, WALTER MITTY stole the pole position from POLICE STORY 2013 警察故事 2013, also starring Jackie Chan.

Only 2 other films climbed to no. 1 last year: PLANES and FROZEN.
