‘Noah’ Has Strong Start in South Korea With $1.1 Million

In its first opening market, the biblical-themed epic “Noah” opened on 730 screens in South Korea and grossed $1.1 million — the highest opening day in 2014 for the territory.

Paramount-New Regency’s film gross is on par with “Gravity’s” opening day in South Korea and ahead of “Inception,” which earned $950k on its opening day.

A large percentage of the Korean population is agnostic, so the comparison to “Gravity” and “Inception” suggests the film is playing more like a tentpole.

In the U.S., “Noah” is on track for a $35 million-plus opening when it hits theaters March 28. Insiders predict that the drama could gross upward of $40 million when it hits theaters on March 28, though Paramount is said to be estimating a lower $27.5 million.

The $130 million film stars Russell Crowe, as the titular character in the Old Testament story of Noah’s Ark, Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly and Anthony Hopkins.
