Korea Box Office: ‘Shadows’ Holds Off ‘Ben Hur,’ ‘Magnificent Seven’

Kim Jee-woon’s foreign-language Oscars contender, “The Age of Shadows,” remained on top of the Korean box office for the third consecutive weekend. It suffered a steep decline of 78% following the holiday period.

The Warner Bros. release earned $3.49 million from 459,000 admissions between Friday and Sunday. After three weekends, the period espionage drama has accumulated a total of $51.1 million.

Biblical epic “Ben-Hur” and Lee Byung-hun-starring Western actioner “The Magnificent Seven” also remained in second and third, respectively. “Ben-Hur” earned $1.42 million between Friday and Sunday for a total of $9.13 million after two weekends. “Magnificent Seven” added $789,000 to extend its total to $6.62 million after two weekends.

Opening on Wednesday, R-rated Japanese zombie flick “I Am A Hero” debuted in fourth, earning $1.15 million over five days. Being the first live-action zombie movie released since Yeon Sang-ho’s record-breaking zombie thriller “Train to Busan,” “Hero” beat the score of “Seoul Station,” the animated prequel to “Train.”

With a week-on-week decline of 84%, Kang Woo-suk’s period drama “The Map Against the World” dropped to fifth from the previous week’s fourth. The CJ Entertainment release earned $361,00 for a total of $6.89 after three weekends on release.

UPI’s “Bridget Jones’ Baby” and Warner Bros.’ “Sully,” both set for Sep. 28 releases, took sixth and seventh with scores from paid previews. “Jones” opened in 349 screens nationwide and earned $376,000 between Wednesday and Sunday, while “Sully” opened in 343 screens and earned $361,000.
