Korea Box Office: ‘Gone Girl’ Debuts on Top

SEOUL — “Gone Girl” made a decent debut at the top of the Korean box office, toppling local comedy “My Love, My Bride.”
 
The David Fincher thriller scored US$3.33 million (KRW 3.50 billion) on its opening weekend despite some Internet users complaining that distributor Fox Korea had gone with a lackluster Korean language title, which translates as “Please Find Me.”
 
Korean director, Jang Jin’s opener “We Are Brothers” came in at second place attracting 345,000 cinema-goers, and taking its opening score to $2.98 million (KRW 3.13 billion). 
 
“My Love,” which was last weekend’s number one, slipped to number three. It took $1.62 million (KRW 1.71 billion) for a cumulative total of $13.6 million.
 
Another local comedy, the newcomer “Red Carpet” debuted in fourth spot, taking $881, 000.

Richard Linklater’s hot Oscar contender “Boyhood” was given a mid-sized release on 215 screens by UPI Korea and debuted at number 8, taking USD $338,000.
 
 A controversial documentary about the Sewol ferry disaster, “The Truth Shall Not Sink with Sewol” (aka “Diving Bell”), was unable to secure any multiplex screens, but played on 20 others and drew packed audiences. Released by Cinema Dal on just 20 screens, it came in 17th with a gross of $69,900. The film premiered at the recent Busan festival, where the local mayor had urged the festival programmers to remove it from their lineup.
