More ‘Snow’ falls on Japan

Record-breaking pic expands showings

PUSAN — Distrib IMX will roll out a director’s cut of Korean hit “April Snow” to theaters in Fukuoka and Nagoya following its record-breaking bow.

The pic, which adds 30 minutes to the 147 minute running time of  the 2005 romantic weeper starring Bae Yong-joon, recorded 3,492 admissions and a B.O. take of 5,416,800 yen ($45,294) in its first two days, following its Sept. 30 opening at Toho Cinemas Roppongi Hills theater.

Figure reps  a nationwide single-screen arthouse high for 2006.

In its first week, it racked up 9,954 admissions and earned $123,367, a single-screen record for an Asian pic in the Roppongi Hills venue.

The new “Snow” will open at Toho Cinemas sites in Nagoya on Oct. 21 and Fukuoka on Oct. 28. Released in September 2005 by UIP, the original pic grossed $23 million — the second-highest-ever take for a Korean pic at the Japanese BO.
