Korea Box Office: ‘Jurassic World’ Holds Off ‘Classified’ Competition

BUSAN — “Jurassic World” remained on top of the Korean box office. It earned $8.64 million from 1.07 million admissions between Friday and Sunday, accounting for 45% of total nationwide revenue.

With strong weekend occupancy and advanced ticket sales of 40%, Universal’s monster sequel is expected to rampage for another week. It has amassed $27.5 million after two weekends on release.

New release Korean crime drama “The Classified File” took second place, after briefly beating “Jurassic” in its opening two days. The Kwak Kyung-taek-directed feature earned $8.56 million from 1.16 million admissions between Thursday and Sunday, marking the highest opening score for all local films released this year.

Another local newcomer “The Silenced” debuted in third, amassing $1.83 million over four days. The mystery drama set under Japanese occupation has already exceeded director Lee Hae-young’s previous “Foxy Festival” which managed $1.38 million in 2010.

“San Andreas” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” slipped to fourth and fifth places, with week-on-week drops of 67% and 65%, respectively. “San Andreas” has earned $12.8 million since its June 3 release. “Mad Max” stands on $30.0 million after six weeks.

Japanese drama “Midnight Diner” opened sixth, managing $297,000. Only “Whiplash” has started better among indie titles this year. Michael Hoffman’s melodrama “The Best of Me” opened in eighth, earning $49,100 over its first four days.
